The Travel Chronicles: Striped

Stripes, Green, Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco, Converse, ChucksConfession. I used to have a serious over-packing issue when it came to trips, even long weekends were tossed into smallish suitcases because I simply couldn’t be bothered to figure out what I wanted to wear before said trip. Shameful I know. But at some point I realized how absurd it was or maybe it was the fact that I didn’t personally care to lug a 75 lbs suitcase up the stairs at my apartment! But over the past few years I have become quite the creative packer, ensuring that I am not repeating outfits but also not going overboard with a gargantuan suitcase for a one week trip. Instead I attempt to keep it to a weekender bag or a carry-on sized suitcase. But what has helped me in this endeavor has been the time I actually spend planning out what I’m going to wear and finding those pieces that I can repurpose on a few occasions if necessary {i.e. shoes, jackets, etc.}  Prime examples of said pieces?  Black converse because they go with nearly everything and they’re comfortable. A black leather jacket because it gets chilly at night in some destinations {i.e. San Fran in the summer} and it layers well. Lastly, a black cross-body bag to hold the necessities {read: stop trying to lug a ginormous bag with too much junk that you don’t need. Clean that handbag out pre trip!} More packing how-tos and tips coming soon!
