In the past, packing meant throwing a bunch of things I liked in a bag and hoping it worked out. More often than not, I was disappointed with my outfits and would always over pack. I've since learned the beauty of visual packing lists - they're a great way to organize, ensure great outfits and avoid the overstuffed bag.

We're leaving on Valentine's Day, so I went with a soft, romantic color palette with pops of blush. It's so pretty paired with gray and black!
The conference is four days, but there are a variety of activities and outings to dress for. I've got 10 items (not including accessories and coat) to make eight outfits, but you could easily remix them into more looks...which is nice if something doesn't quite work in real-life.
I'm really happy with the mix of professional and casual options. Fingers crossed that I can get everything to fit in my weekender!
