Packing Problems? Never fear, TSB is here!

Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm SO excited for today because the fabulous girls over at The Sequined Blazer are guest posting! Liz is one of my closest friends and she and the lovely Anna started TSB a little over a year ago. It is my go-to blog for fashion advice and inspiration. Since I'm going to be heading to Jeff's Dad's house the day after Christmas, it made me remember the first Christmas I spent with his family-- how nervous I was and how I had NO idea what the heck to pack. I sure wish TSB was around then because I probably wouldn't have needed two suitcases for 3 days. Enjoy the post and make sure you go say hi to these amazingly fashionable ladies over at TSB!

Although we can hardly believe it, Christmas is less than a week away!  Where the time goes, we have no idea.  While some among us are busying themselves with last minute shopping, we're, as always, worrying about what on Earth we're going to wear this weekend.  For those of you planning to hit the road (or airport) this holiday, you'll inevitably be forced to plan your outfits ahead of time.  This can be especially difficult if you're headed to your in-law's (or future in-law's, as the case may be), where lounging around in your pajamas while your mom cooks breakfast and does your laundry is, unfortunately, not on the docket.  To  alleviate some of the pressure, we've put together a packing list for just occasion.  If only the rest of the weekend were going to be this easy! 
Comfy Daytime Ensemble: This "Sunday Chic" outfit does double duty, acting as travel gear on Friday morning, and resurfacing to pick up last minute groceries on Saturday.  Cute, Not Sexy, PJ's: Chances are you'll be spending a lot of time in your jammies this weekend, and as much as your Sig-O might like the look of you in his boxers, we're guessing his family isn't going to think it's quite as cute.  Slouchy leggings and a thermal work whether your headed to bed or opening presents with the fam.   Christmas Dinner Duds: With Christmas falling on a Sunday this year, we suggest packing two somewhat dressy outfits for the weekend.  This year we're loving bright colors for the holiday season.  In a sea of greens and reds, you'll be a total standout, and we don't see anything wrong with that!

I should have followed this packing list... I actually managed to forget pajamas this trip. Oops!
