BONUS TIPS

  • Research the weather of wherever it is you’re going to be staying. Rainy? Will it be humid and hot? Is snow going to ruin your plans for cute, strappy shoes? No matter where you’re headed, if you’ve never been, start watching The Weather Network like a hawk, so you won’t find yourself poorly packed upon arrival.
  • Hang ALL of your clothing as soon as you get to the hotel to defy wrinkle-dom!
  • When you’re packing your clothes, roll as much as possible to create more room, and call ahead to ask about dry clean service at your hotel, or if the room comes with an iron — if you’re wrinkly, I guarantee you’ll be grumpy!
  • Bring your cutest MOST comfortable shoes! Trust me, your feet will thank you. Spring for some of those cushy, gel inserts too — love them, and you won’t be sobbing, soaking your feet in the tub at the end of the day.
  • Bring more than you think you’ll need so you have choice. If it’ll fit in your suitcase, toss it in!
  • Have fun with the jewelry you bring, but keep it casual when it comes to tossing in your favourite diamond studs. It’s always better to play it safe with the $$$ pieces when you’re away from home.
  • Don’t WORRY about what to wear. Dress comfortably, thoughtfully, and simply — you’ll be fabulous, I promise!

    This year for 2.0 I literally created the outfits in advance and bagged them individually. I have been to dozens of conferences, I can’t even tell you how valuable it was. Instead of trying to piece together something to wear from everything I brought I was in my room and out in minutes and back to socializing. And? These outfits ROCK. Love this post.

      Stefanie – I do the same thing when I travel for conferences and events. I even select the jewelry and put it with each outfit. It saves a TON of time, I agree!

    Love these tips! I’m a big fan of rolling when packing too. By the way, hate to be the typo police but your first bonus tip says “whether” instead of “weather” ;) hope to see you at BlogHer!
