I have a sophisticated and highly scientific approach to packing for Burning Man next year:
Bring as much spandex as possible.
Spandex, it turns out, takes up VERY LITTLE SPACE in your supplies and therefore is very compact.
It also helps that spandex fabric is used to make bodysuits, jumpsuits, and bathing suits.
Things that are PERFECT for Burning Man, in other words.
The thing about investing in a heavily spandexified wardrobe for Burning Man is that I will be FORCED to wear what I bring.
Which means people will see me running around in those bodysuits, jumpsuits and bathing suits.
But for a woman who at least CLAIMS to be comfortable with her body, this should be NO BIG BEAL.
Or is it?
Remember last year?
I got all excited about high waisted bikini bottoms?
I bought three pairs, invested in coordinating tops and accessories then DIDN’T WEAR THEM AT ALL?
And I can’t use the excuse that it was TOO DAMN HOT, because bikinis and tank tops are pretty much the accepted uniform for hot days on the playa.
So here are three new pieces I’m using to create my new COMPACT Burning Man wardrobe:
Can I tell you just how much I LOVE them?!
Lets hope I actually WEAR them!
