It may not feel like it, but March is upon us and that means it’s almost time for CAMP
! Because this conference is about getting back to basics and focusing on creativity, I’m not letting myself get too wrapped up in buying a bunch of fancy new blogger things to wear. Since there’s a strict no heels policy anyway, I think most of the other campers are also embracing the conference as an opportunity to connect without all the fluff and facades.
Even though I’m not putting together tulle-clad outfit changes, there are a few things I need to be prepared (scout motto!) for my weekend at CAMP.
1. business cards – I haven’t purchased new business cards since 2012, so it was time for a redesign. I loved my last batch of MOO cards (and I’m very loyal to a brand that treats me well!), so I gave my old cards a little update and I’m ready to give them out to everyone I meet!
2. fanny pack
– So you’ve ordered 100+ business cards, you’re going to need a place to put them! I’m not going to want to carry around my purse the whole weekend (and this is definitely no place for a clutch!), but I will definitely need to carry things around as the Volunteer Coordinator. This pink Herschel “hip bag”
is dreamy and
useful. I’m excited to use it for runs this summer after CAMP!
3. something khaki
– It’s absurd how excited I am for the Khaki Jamboree on Saturday night of CAMP. I’m still planning my outfit, but I know that I’m at least going to wear my favorite utility jacket (last seen here
) throughout the weekend to stay in the khaki spirit. This H&M utility jacket
is a great pick for those of you who need something khaki and cute that you can wear again after the conference!
4. flat shoes
– Since flat shoes are on the official packing list
, I’m using this as an excuse to finally buy a pair of slip-ons. I know I posted a bunch of cute grey and gold pairs
a few weeks back, but then this baby pink pair
showed up and LOFT and, well, I need them. Plus, how cute are they going to look with my fanny pack, right?
What’s on your CAMP checklist? I loved seeing what Den Mother Chelsea
is packing for the weekend. Can’t wait to see you there!
