I’m going to Mexico on Christmas day—a small town about an hour’s flight and then another hour’s drive from Mexico City called San Miguel, have any of you been?— and am aiming to fit everything into a carry-on. This is usually pretty easy when packing for a warm climate. But apparently it gets cold in the evenings there this time of year, which creates a challenge. So I’m only bringing with me items I know I’ll want to wear repeatedly. And I am dreaming of purchasing these Nili Lotan Jenna pants, in navy, with the most adorable ribbon trim. They’ll look cute cuffed when it’s warmer out, and are so damn comfortable and flattering.
On the plane, I’ll wear these R-13 jeans, which I have owned forever.
And whatever the thickest sweater I’m bringing is.
I own a couple of Maria Cornejo jersey dresses, and they are so good for travel because they pack down to nothing.
I can’t imagine not bringing a striped long-sleeved tee, most likely in simple, graphic black and white because it’s so versatile, and a little punk rock.
To walk around everywhere, I will bring these clogs, even though they’re clunky to pack.
A lightweight cotton cardigan is a particularly good layering piece.
And finally, I know I risk boring you by going on about about Chan Luu scarves again, but they really are the best for travel. Lightweight, but super-warm too. This is so fun in the leopard print, no?
