Well guys, I’m heading to NYFW today with Kristen from Every Chic Way, and I’m beyond excited. I can’t wait to be immersed in the city and surrounded by inspiring fashion. However, traveling has always been hard for me. I get anxious being out of my comfort zone and planes are just scary!! So, in order to overcompensate, I hyper-actively plan my packing! I have to pack my suitcase (obvi), but I also have to make sure I have the proper tools for the plan ride.
Since I don’t travel frequently, a suitcase isn’t always on the top of my shopping list. It’s like when you only notice your windshield wipers don’t work properly only when it’s raining. However, you can never underestimate the necessity of a quality suitcase. I prefer a hard shell case that will protect the contents of my bag getting squished. You might be thinking that a hard case isn’t as great as an expandable bag, but it really is way better. I feel comfortable knowing my case won’t get ripped open, torn, or smashed in transit.
I have a thing for pouches. I love them. I think I have a pouch for just about everything – chapstick and makeup, medicines, tampons and other girly things, money/cards, etc. I always know which pouch to reach for when I need something rather than digging around my huge handbag, which happens to be a black hole. These pouches are essential for flying. They help me condense my items and make it easy to find what I need quickly.
Now on to the more important part – the clothes! What is fashion week without a carefully curated wardrobe?! Picking the perfect outfits has been a huge challenge, of course. I wanted them to be just right. I’ll be showing off my NYFW fashion in my outfit posts on the blog, on instagram, and on snapchat (@magtag26). Make sure to stay tuned!
