Packing for a Business Trip (Week-Long)

In case you missed the previous posts:


Most business trips are about a week long.

But if they aren’t, just cut back accordingly.

For business travel, I don’t like to bring a lot of accessories.

The reason being that I don’t want to lose my favourite pieces, and I don’t want to distract colleagues with jangly earrings or flashy things.

If you want to know where any of the items are from and what they cost, you can check out the Polyvore set here.

Note: I do not own these items, nor do I condone the price of them.

Heck, I don’t own any one item worth over $300.

They are just good examples of what I look for.

You can find similar items for much cheaper at almost any price range (although I’d spend more on the shoes & the jacket, not the tops or the pants).

This is what I’d wear on the plane for the day of travel, instead of being a slob.

You will notice a common thread in a lot of what I pack.

It is mostly things that can do double-duty for night and day, depending on what shoes you wear, and what jacket or sweater you wear.

The boots and/or the ballet flats are optional depending on your style and your workplace dress code.

You can always bring a low-heeled pair of pumps instead of the two, and wear the slim sneakers out for when you want to be more casual.

Even sleepwear does double duty.
