My Trip Essentials

As a stylist, travel is a must. Packing, unpacking and then repacking is the name of the game. Maintaining a stylish, yet practical wardrobe is also important when you’re always on the go. I’ve compiled a list of trip-ready essentials that help make packing easier, go with you anywhere and pair well with just about anything in your suitcase. So no matter if I travel for two days or two weeks, visit the coast or the city, I’m prepared for it all.



My essentials list includes:

  • Jeans can be dressed up or down
  • Denim Button-Down and/or White Button-Down that go with everything
  • White and/or Black Tee is great for layering or by itself
  • Little Black Dress for any special event that comes up
  • Leather Jacket is classic outfit finishing piece
  • Hoodie because hotel rooms and planes can get cold
  • Neutral Heels for a day meeting or a night out on the town
  • Flats and/or Street-Style Sneakers keep my feet happy while walking all day
  • Flowy Scarf to keep warm and “pops” any outfit
  • Hat to block the sun and keep wrinkles away
