As the 2016 Sundance Film Festival draws to a close, we are getting an insider’s account of the festivities from one of our own, PaperCity account executive Samantha Olguin. She hopped on a plane to Park City for a quick trip filled with skiing and sightseeing and, of course, let us know what clothing, accessory and skincare essentials she brought with her for the weekend.

In your suitcase.
These are my skincare musts for mountain weather:
Fresh Rose Face Mask
Fresh Sugar Lip Polish
Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk and Honey Whipped Body Butter
Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate
Le Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge Anti-Aging Complexe

What I wore to stay warm:
Prana jacket
Sorel boots
The Hightower Collection necklace
Christina Greene earrings
Banana Republic pullover
Topshop faux fur vest
American Apparel leggings
Blank denim jeans
J. Crew button down
Kate Spade shoe bag
Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bag

Carry-on must-haves.
I couldn’t travel without a great lip moisturizer, hand cream, moisturizing face mist, gloves and hat. Here are a few other things I brought on the flight:
Fresh lip balm
Aveda toning agent
Henri Bendel cosmetics bag
Gigi New York luggage tag

The St. Regis Deer Valley hotel was heaven.

Flanagan’s Irish Pub: Perfect for a Sunday bloody Mary.

Favorite moments.
People watching at the No Name Saloon, skiing, walking along Main Street, and après-ski with Cowboy coffees at the High West Distillery and Saloon.
