As I was packing last weekend I wondered why I had never done a post on packing essentials. So I got to thinking about what I usually pack and the one certainty of every trip is probably a trusty denim jacket. It pretty much goes with everything in my suitcase and it’s kind of my style security blanket. Don’t like what I’m wearing? Put a jacket on it.
I wore this jacket every day this week. The convention center is always freezing and I can’t think when it’s cold. It was 106 degrees out but I was the girl in pants and a jacket everyday. I don’t do cold, ever. I mean I’m from Texas — below 70 and I need a coat.
All that to say I owe you a packing essentials post, but for now here is the rule of thumb: always pack a denim jacket. It will serve you well in your travels. I don’t always travel, but when I do I always bring a denim jacket.
