That means packing, second-guessing, unpacking, repacking, and over-packing until tomorrow afternoon.
"Inside My Bag" posts are some of my favorites to read (#NosyRosy) and write so I thought this trip would be another great opportunity for one.
Unplanned color coordination :)Longchamp
I love my large navy Longchamp Le Pilage tote! I bought it in the fall and it's quickly become my favorite everyday bag. I can fit so much in here and don't have to worry about it falling apart; it's made to last. From school to the gym to work to travel, this bag is definitely an investment piece. Currently trying to talk myself out of buying a black one, too…
Book or Kindle & Journal
I'm still torn between my love of paper and my love of digital convenience. I picked up The Boys in the Boat from the library, but have a few extras on my Kindle (not pictured) just incase I finish it too quickly (Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and The Last Tycoon by Fitzgerald).
I've already written about how much I love journaling, especially when I'm traveling!
Phone & Charger
Does anyone else feel like their phone's constantly drained? My iPhone 4 is overdue for an upgrade but I'm trying to hold out for the iPhone 6 (Fall 2014, fingers crossed) with hopes that battery life will be improved. For now, I use this portable charger from J.Crew (Mine's been discontinued, but this one is similar).
Eyeglasses & Sunnies
My glasses are Warby Parker (Ainsworth in Walnut Tortoise) and my sunnies are Raybans (Retro-Cat in Black)
This is an older Coach wallet, probably from Marshalls. (similar & similar)
My favorite summer-travel-snack! Doesn't everybody have one?
I found this adorable little clutch in the France gift shop at Epcot in Disney World. It makes the perfect just-incase bag!
It's actually a lot bigger than it looks!
gum (only for the plane ride - I hate smacking)
an extra hairband
nail polish for touch-ups
a pillbox (with Ibuprofen and Midol)
chapstick (EOS is the best!)
contact case & solution
I can't wait until tomorrow! I'll be back next week to share all about my trip.
What are some of your travel necessities?
