In 3 days I’ll be headed off for my first adventure of the summer! Along with my family I am visiting Sedona, Arizona. So I thought I would share what I am packing for the trip!
I have been there twice before, but my Mom & Aunt seem to visit there constantly. There are many things to do in Sedona; most people enjoy all the trails through the rock formations which are open to the public. Since we are going in the spring/summer & Arizona is already hitting high tempuratures packing light was key!
The first outfit that I always start with is what I am going to be wearing for the flight. Since we are flying out of Cleveland in the morning, we will be arriving in Sedona pretty early. The goal for on flight outfits for me is to be comfortable, but not look so much like a bum! I choose my favorite pair of demin shorts, they are super comfortable & they won’t be annoying during the flight; with it I choose a comfortable t-shirt, I sure do love my band t-shirts! This outfit to me is perfect because even if we don’t have time to stop at the hotel before exploring the town I’ll be ready to go!
Once the on-flight outfit is taken care of I focus on grabbing my favorite tops that I have that I can basically pair with anything. The tops also had to be light & airy since the projected forcast for the week goes up to 90 degrees! Since I will be gone for only a little over a week, I really only bring 2-3 pairs of shorts & alternate tops. I choose to bring my jean shorts, a soft pair of maroon shorts, & this super cute new jean skirt that I am obsessed with!
Now that I had my ‘arount the town’ clothes together I had to start with the hiking clothes. We always try and get out early in the morning to hike or else the heat makes it impossible to take 10 steps (I don’t do too well in the heat!) Most of the hiking clothes have UV protection which is important, you don’t want to burn out in the desert! Along with my fancy hiking pants from Columbia & Eddie Bauer I threw in a few Penn State t-shirts, I mean you never know where you will find some fellow Alumni!
To end my packing I threw in a few accessories, such as some silk scarfs to tie in my hair or around my neck (it’s my new fav trend), and a couple hats as well! Where I live I don’t wear hats out & about too much even though I love wearing them! I threw in my new hiking hat that will protect my eyes & the back of my neck from the sun. I got it from TJ Maxx & I just loved the funky floral pattern! I also threw in my black pom-pom hat that I got last year from TJ Maxx as well; I thought it would really complete one of my desert outfits!
Now that my packing is done the excitment & waiting is just killing me!
Thank you so much for stopping by & packing with me!
Where are you excited to visit this summer!?
