Kate has been a total fan of the latest I Can Pack for That series I started, to give helpful travel packing inspiration boards for different travel destinations. Kate emailed me with a dilemma because she has a business trip coming up...to SINGAPORE! Right now, Singapore is HOT and RAINY. What is a professional fashionista to do? Good question! So...let's see what magic we can make. **SPOILER ALERT** This is a two part Packing How To post!
Concern #1: WEATHER
1- Bring light layers you can mix and match.
2- Be prepared: rain gear, sunnies, adapter, bug spray
3- Maintain a staple color i.e. nude and black
Concern #2: 30 HOUR FLIGHT!
1- E-READER for books, mags, & games
2- Laptop for movies and conference prep
3- Two Carry Ons: I ALWAYS use a large travel purse and a rolling laptop bag.
I can fit as much as possible without breaking my back this way.
4- Be Comfy: Cardigan, blanket, mask, pillow, and an MP3
5- Be Fresh: Hydrating Skincare, change of clothes, toothbrush, and makeup.
6- I always carry a journal to pen my travels!
Packing for travel can be daunting so if you feel you will be overwhelmed, start a few days early and slowly check things off your list. Be sure to pack by outfits so you know you have enough, and plan pieces that can change with each other to double your wardrobe. Singapore was definitely a special case with such extreme weather on top of a long flight, but you can always adjust where needed!
