Summer staples: What to pack for a trip to Blue Ridge Mountains, Tennessee

All you really need in the summertime is a tall iced coffee, a mountain to climb, waterfalls and forests to explore with your favorite people and pups, and a few solid outfits that will breathe with you through the afternoon breeze.

Packing List: Summer Music Festival Glamping

Pssst… There are a few more tips in my 2018 MightyGoods music festival packing interview! Everlane backpack and v-neck, Lou & Grey shorts. Photos by Stu Haluski. I’m off to Washington, DC to kick off a week of champagne, girl talk, glamping, and killer music at Firefly Festival. Working through the details of what to bring on the trip, the bridesmaids and I put together a spreadsheet chock-full of festival essentials, tips and tricks, and a detailed packing list that is universally handy for any hot and humid summer festival – especially if you’re flying!

I’m sharing my favorite places to shop sustainably, details on my thrifted and vintage outfit, and what influences my personal style: Interview right this way, or read below: 1. Tell us about your outfit: who made it and why do you love it? As with most of my outfits, this one is a comfortable blend of favorite second-hand finds. The whole thing is thrifted, from the Louboutins (found on Tradesy), to the Phillip Lim bag (from eBay), to remaining bits picked up at a favorite charity shop: a Saks Fifth wool jacket, Joie Pants, Charter Club button down, Moda International sweater, and vintage sunglasses and jewelry.

One extremely long post: My first year documenting outfits and personal style

New job, new house, new clothes… It was May 2012 and as mortar boards glided like confetti in the air, another product designer was minted.
