I love to make lists. By checking off various tasks on my to-do lists, by end of day, I feel a sense of accomplishment. And if don’t cross it off, the task moves to the following day till it’s completed. It’s a trick I learned in college and stayed with me throughout my working years.
Same goes when I am preparing for a trip. I make a checklist, mark down what I want to put in my a carry-on, and then hunt for said items in my closet. Packing for a four-day trip looking ambitiously cool for all of those days? It might seem like a tall order but frankly, without scribbling down what I need to pack: that red lipstick, the eye mask, and the ubiquitous sweatshirt, my packing situation would be abominable. And I will never look chic, albeit totally planned.
I can, of course, try, which is where this post comes in to tell the tale of time. I brought a pair of jeans, a t-shirt and shoe choices for an excursion to my alma mater down in New Orleans where Pat O’s rules and crawdaddies are the way to the soul. Kidding about the last part—its all about those Po’ boys.
Here I have curated a 19 item, go-to packing post, travel essentials, for your weekend pleasure no matter where you’re headed. Im hoping to dodge this latest hurricane threat. C’mon Karen. All links are clickable, although my underlining abilities are curtailed at the moment.
Moving over to the right, Sugar Lip stain, NARS bronzer for quick applications, and as for accoutrements, the more the merrier. Here’s my top picks. These stacked LOVE rings are cheap and do the trick. This ALDO clutch resembles the Alexander McQueen without the price tag. A stylish graphic tee is good option to pack, get a similar one here.
