Packing For Vail Colorado

A last minute trip to Vail popped up on our calendar and I couldn’t resist another opportunity to get in a little skiing and crisp mountain air. We are headed back to the mountains this weekend and I will be bringing all of my warm weather essentials.

For the last seven years, we have been coming to my husband’s favorite place: Vail, Colorado. He has been visiting this little mountain town since he was just a little boy and introduced me to this special place one summer when we were driving my car from Scottsdale back to college.  There is something so charming and extremely special about this place.  This is the place where we fell in love and where I realized I wanted to marry this boy.  As the years pass and the number of visits climb, I fall a little bit more in love with this town.

There are three things I never leave the house without: A clutch, Vaseline for my lips (I have never been much of a lipstick girl) and my cell phone (duh!). Using a clutch has been key to keeping me extra organized, especially while traveling. I love being able to find all of my essentials without having to dig around in my tote.

I have been spending the past week in Vail, Colorado and I have made sure to have my trusty Vaseline lip tins with me at all times. Let’s be honest, no one wants dry, cracked lips in the mountains or on the slopes. Remember when I told you how much I love those cute little Vaseline lip tins?  Well, Gigi New York partnered with the brand to help keep me even more organized (and with a monogram- what else could a girl ask for). Especially being in the dry air, my cute lip tin holder has been a lifesaver. It has been clipped onto my tote bag, in my clutch and I even had one in my ski jacket. I mean what girl doesn’t want another excuse for a monogram.  :)
