Happy Friday! I’m finally getting back into the swing of things, despite bouts of post-Fashion Week Depression. Looking back on the last few hours of my trip makes me laugh. You know when you’re just having a day? That was me, in a nutshell:
In a time span of three hours, I snagged a hole in my silk chiffon maxi, stranded myself in traffic during an important meeting and missed my flight back to Chicago. During take-off (on the stand-by flight I jumped on), my purse fell sideways and everything slid out, down the aisle, and all the way to the back of the plane. It went in this order: Laptop, phone, iPad, bracelets, lip gloss, notebook, etc. To provide a bit more context, I was seated in row four. FOUR! I mean, really, world?
Ultimately, though, I had an amazing trip and am already looking forward to next season. In the coming days, I’ll be sharing my experience and various trend reports with you (as promised), but in the meantime, I’m planning to edit the number of items to tote at the tents next year.
Be gone, 60-pound carry-on! Here’s my essentials for a comfortable, stylish getaway — whether you’re bound for the East Coast, the West Coast, or overseas.
What’s always in your bag?
