Sad puppy 🙁 – she gets so concerned and hover-y when she sees the luggage come out
I have this Bric’s suitcase (carry-on size), which interestingly is the same one Leandra Medine has and while I was reading that piece and her packing list for California, I kept thinking: there is NO WAY ON EARTH she fit all that stuff in this bag.
Well…….here’s what’s in mine:
Nike Free sneakers (wearing to and fro)
Melissa plastic thong sandals (for the pool)
Emerson Fry slides (for the hotel)
Birkenstock Arizona Sandals
Eileen Fisher slouchy ankle pants
6397 Shorty Jeans (wearing to and fro)
Oak NYC maxi dress
James Perse double v ruched dress (old)
Elizabeth Suzann Clyde pants
Elizabeth Suzann harper linen tunic
James Perse leggings
Atelier Delphine Haori coat (wearing to and fro)
Everlane u-neck tee (wearing to and fro)
Everlane white ryan tank
James Perse grey casual tee
Organic by John Patrick viscose tee
5 pairs of Only Hearts organic bikinis, boyshorts & high-waisted panties
organic by john patrick organic cotton tank dress (to sleep and lounge in)
I have a nylon toiletry case by Bric’s with more stuff in it than I care to mention – I honestly don’t use many beauty/skin care products at all, but when they’re all together, it seems like SO MUCH! And I always take my philips sonicare toothbrush with me when I travel, and that takes up a lot of room. It’s stuffed in my suitcase, somehow, and since we’re not pre-check for this trip, I have my liquids in a plastic bag in my tote.
THAT’S A LOT OF STUFF!!!! too much, honestly, but I’m really nervous (as usual) that I won’t have the right things with me, and everything fits in my carry-on, so…
Under my seat:
in my Tumi M-tote
All my usual handbag contents: wallet, pouch, sunglasses, two BAGGU bags
Flight001 seat pak with these things inside:
Bose noise cancelling earbuds
Aesop hand sanitizer
Hurraw lip balm
Snacks (go macro bars)
Chan Luu scarf
More snacks, more lip balm, quart bag with toiletries
Swell water bottle
My initial thoughts about my packing job:
It sucks. I’m bringing too much, and even so, feel like I’m missing one thing: a “normal” lightweight, waterproof jacket. I will probably look at this one by Patagonia when we get back to have on deck for traveling. It’s supposed to be quite rainy while we’re there, and I don’t have a rain jacket, I mean, I do, but it’s gigantic, and blue. And gigantic.
I am really only wearing the haori coat because I want something to use as a robe at the hotel, something to wrap up in, and on the plane. If I had aforementioned light waterproof jacket, I would probably wear that instead, and just bring my JP “lounge” dress with sleeves for the hotel.
Well, as you’re reading this, we’re there and coming back on Tuesday. I’ll debrief my packing later this week. I already know I will probably not wear 50% of what I brought. In fact, I’m predicting it.
