When I travel, I never check-in my luggage maybe it’s because I hate the thought of lugging a big suitcase with me. It’s also because I’m hyper-organized. I make lists and pack only what I will wear. I begin by laying everything out on the bed so I can see everything and then I edit down. I pack basics such as white and black t-shirts, black and denim skinny jeans, a black dress, and a black sweater. I mix, match, and layer these basics to create different outfits using the same pieces. I add color with my bag and scarf and make it interesting with jewelry. I found this amazing site called 3 fl oz that sells all your favorite beauty products in 3 ounces! This is my routine 24 hours before traveling:
1) Check weather in destination city.
2) Check-in for flight, print boarding passes and itinerary.
3) Make sure all clothes that are to be packed are laundered.
4) Confirm transportation. For New Yorkers, I take the shuttle bus to LaGuardia ($12) or JFK ($15) from Grand Central.
