What’s in My Bags: A Travel Edition

I’m in Seattle for 4 days.  Short trips by plane can be difficult to pack for especially given all the TSA and airline regulations these days.  Interested in seeing how I packed?

The Bags:

 MICHAEL Michael Kors Tote and Terrida Tangaroa holdall bag

What’s in the MK Tote Bag:

What’s in the Holdall Bag:

Day outfits

Extra dress


Evening options

Jewerly.  I did wear some of these to travel though.


Intimates, makeup/toiletries, makeup brushes

Cables and such…

You may notice that I’m one outfit short.  For the return trip, I’ll probably mix and match some of the items I wore in Seattle.  I chose the items and the color scheme to allow for mixing and matching.  It’s more likely, though, that I’ll wear something I buy here.  The flagship Nordstrom store and a Nordstrom Rack are just down the hill. 

What I Carried by Wearing:

I wore my coat and boots to save room in the carry-on

By the way, this French Connection “Poodle” coat retails for $368, but I found it in TJ Maxx for $69.  Since the coat has that oversized and swingy vibe, I made sure that all my outfits had either straight or skinny silhouettes to complement it.

What I’m Wearing Today:

Today’s outfit with the coat.
