My Top 4 Travel Tips
1. Invest in a good suitcase - this specific Calpak luggage is perfect as a carry-on. It's durable, recognizable, and even expands for all my bulky shoes. Most importantly, it's stylish and versatile. I absolutely love the black marble design. You can purchase it at Nordstrom here.
2. Build out an itinerary - even relaxing getaways require a little planning. Whether you're just taking a weekend away, or going on a 3-week adventure always have a rough itinerary jotted on paper with a few activities and times. Even if you don't stick to all of it, atleast you have a roadmap for your trip which will help maximize your time.
3. Plan your outfits ahead - I know, I know...i hate doing it too. But every time i build out my outfits beforehand I'm able to pack smarter and more efficiently. I usually choose outfits based on weather and mood, so if there's a little room I pack 2 or 3 "just in case" looks.
4. Double up on tech accessories - power banks, two iphone cords, two sets of ear phones (in case one breaks on you), two outlet blocks; whatever it may be you can never have too many tech accessories to get you through your trip.
Hope you find these helpful. Happy Travels!
