What's In My Bag: Puerto Rico Edition!

Well, here's something fun. I went out of town again! This blog post is coming at you from Puerto Rico!

Yes friends, it's Christmas week, and you know what that means - time for my family's annual Dysfunctional Family Vacation! For the second year in a row, all fourteen of us are hanging out in San Juan, Puerto Rico for the week!

Pictures from last year's DFV

Last year we actually had a lovely time on the DFV - full of lots of sun and splashing in the ocean and delicious dinners every night and a little casino time and me reading all three Hunger Games books in 48 hours :) Now that I know there's a Starbucks in the hotel lobby and an awesome spa, I am even more excited than normal!

You know I like to share what I'm bringing along with me in my suitcase (sidebar: I packed so much for Israel that I BROKE my trusty enormous turquoise suitcase and had to throw it away - SAD - and now I am being forced to pack in a smaller-than-normal suitcase), so here's a little sneak peek into my bag!

prpacking

ONE:
A turquoise earring is my go-to for dressing up any outfit. I love these Kendra Scotts!

TWO:
Kate Spade makes the most comfortable wedges. These are neutral and will go great with any outfit so I can save room in my suitcase!

THREE:
Hello, it's vacation - I put Essie Pink Parka on my fingers AND my toes!

FOUR:
I was gifted these amazing Clare Vivier foldover clutch for Hanukkah - the pony hair is SO soft and you know I am ALL about the leopard print!

FIVE:
Bright, comfy, simple, cheap - what more could you ask for from a sundress?!

SIX:
I snagged this silvery/grey Vera Wang tank from Kohls last week - I think it'll look great on the trip with a long black maxiskirt and sandals, and when I get home I can wear it with leggings and boots!

SEVEN:
I'm behind on my magazine reading, so I have a stack of US Weekly's about eight inches high - not kidding - that I can't wait to read by the pool every day, beverage in hand!

EIGHT:
I basically bring this backup iPhone battery with me everywhere I go - I'm OBSESSED with it. Now I won't have to worry about my phone dying in between texting Ram, updating Facebook, and posting Instagram pictures :)

NINE:
Picked up this cute bathing suit on sale last week - it's so chic with the gold metal accents!
