What am I missing?

I leave for vacation (8 days) tomorrow. I feel like packing was WAY too easy. I have 8 sundresses, 2 pairs of shoes (that match everything! Strategic shopping ladies... that's all I have to say!) and all my accessories (bracelets, necklaces, rings, earrings). I have my sexy lingerie, my practical panties, my travel-sized shower stuff, two sets of PJ's, my hairbrushes...idk. I have to be forgetting something here. Extra contacts, hair ties, bobby pins... what else?!

  • I'd definitely pack more clothes. If you spill something on yourself then you're down a outfit. I'd also pack a cardigan or shawl to wear indoors if the air conditioning is a bit too chilly.
