Here we go again, another work travel adventure. This time I’m heading to New Mexico (super stoked, I’ve never been!). I’m currently writing to all of you beauts from the Logan Airport amongst all the business commuters. I thought I’d share another packing list, since we are getting close to prime time holiday travel, it may help your packing needs!! Here we go.
What’s being packed:
Three casual shirts (one is a run shirt but cute enough to be worn in real life, thanks Lululemon!)
One pair of skinny jeans
Workout clothes (two tanks, one long sleeve, one pant and one crop, two sports bras, a headband, ear warmer and running gloves for both in the gym and outside workouts)
Business attire (a pencil skirt, two blouses, a dress, a nice pair of slacks, a cardigan)
Fun outfit (sweater dress)
Travel home outfit (slouchy sweater, leggings, tank)
Shoes (sneakers, TOMS flats, high heels)
Two pairs of tights (& plenty of undergarment unmentionables)
Food!! (4 packs of vegan oatmeal, 4 kind bars, 4 chia bars, 4 CLIF builders bars – who knows what kind of food will be available?)
All of that fits right into my small, roller bag that is a carry on (along with a few toiletries) with room to spare. I always do my best to choose things that can be mixed and matched. I do my best to fight the urge to overpack (an affliction I frequently suffer from). I always bring mix and match workout gear so I have the option to go for runs outside and do some weight training in the gym – I don’t like to be limited. It’s high elevation (for little sea level, asthmatic moi) so I don’t have high expectations for long runs but is like to challenge myself to at least two runs, even if they are short. 😉
I’ve mentioned in a previous post that I usually find my veg options pretty lackluster on travel. I’ve packed my own lunch to eat on the plane (two apples, best baked tofu, and the last serving of the butternut and kale I made last week). I always bring a bunch of things I can eat: kind and chia bars for quick snacks, oatmeal for breakfast/if I’m starving and can make using the coffee machine in my room, and builders bars just in case I’m way below the amount if protein I need for the day. It always makes me feel better to a) have snacks and b) know I won’t starve! 🙂
Stay tuned for my carry-on travel essentials in the next post. 😀
Hope you all had a great weekend! I’ll be posting my weekend recap sometime this week. It was a good time (to say the least!).
