Packing for short trips can be a true pain in the *ss, but now that I am doing it more frequently, I am starting to get the hang of it. I used to really overpack, but dragging all the luggage around is an even bigger pain in the *ss than packing it – especially when you live on the fourth floor and you don’t have an elevator, I can tell you that.
I just packed my bags – just one I promise! – for a two day trip to Sweden to finish the project I was talking about (but not really talking about) in my newsletter. The ‘outfit’ pictured above is something I usually wear in the plane, a simple look that is mostly very comfy.
These are the random, but very necessary things I take with me. I used to keep a list of these things, because I literally always forget something – mostly my business cards – but now that I travel more frequently I have that list printed in the back of my head.
Book, Mr Porter Paper Back (hey, can’t give a gift to the boyfriend without reading it myself); Notebook, Smythson; An International Power Adapter; Passport; iPhone; something to eat; Camera, Canon EOS M; Mini Make-Up; Glasses, Mykita; Toothbrush and -Paste; Tonic, Origins; Business Cards; Sunglasses, Bottega Veneta; iPad; Bank- and Creditcards; Headphones.
And of course, a decent outfit to wear…
Jacket, Maison Martin Margiela; Sleeveless Jacket, Acne; T-Shirt, Zadig et Voltaire; Bag, Kurt Geiger.
ps: Do not forget your pj’s, underwear and socks!
