for the grand finale of my travel tips series, i bring you the suitcase. first, check the weather. second, do any necessary laundry. third, roll, roll, roll! but seriously, it really is best to roll your clothes. they don’t get as creased, they take up less room, and it’s SO fun! anyways, on to the goods. i’m going to london with my dad, so that means i have to be nicely put together and more conservative (less bohemian) than i might usually be. also, yes, i realize the only piece of color here is my scarf and my green cords. whatever!
here is literally what’s in my suitcase (i provided as many links as possible!):
2 pairs of cords – j.crew high rise in black and olive green
2 pairs of black jeans – bdg high rise and paige high rise (really old)
1 pair dark jeans – citizens rocket in icon
madewell skirt with leather details – black (really old)
zara batwing sweater – dark grey
zara crew neck – black and light grey (old)
random turtleneck – black
urban outfitters turtleneck – blue/green (old)
gap long sleeves shirts – white, grey, black
black booties (old!)
brown lace up booties (old!)
jcrew cocoon coat – black
neff beanie – i have a couple in various colors
anthropologie scarf – floral with maroon background (old)
i hope this little series was somewhat helpful for any new travelers/overpackers/people who just like to read this stuff. i would like to think that i’m a pretty experienced traveler (i hope that doesn’t sound ridiculously conceited) and i’ve learned over the years how to pack just the right amount of stuff. let me know what your travel essentials are and if you think i’m on the right track!
