Here at Hotels Above Par, Assistant Editor Britney Eschelman knows a thing or two about last-minute packing her suitcase and jet-setting off to the next destination, be it canyoneering around Bryce Canyon or sightseeing around Madrid. From toiletry must-haves to wardrobe staples, here’s her essential packing list.
I use the fashionable and functional Travel Pack backpack by Nomatic to hold all my easy-access commodities. In addition to its sleek design, the expandable bag provides a plethora of organizational pockets, a dedicated laptop sleeve, and a hidden compartment for coveted items.
An oversized button-down collar shirt is a must-have staple clothing item to pack regardless of season. This Lolo high-collar top from Noble 31 strikes a balance between drape and structure, allowing it to stand alone or layer under sweaters if the temperature is chillier.
In the running for the most critical item in my suitcase, this timeless Little Black Dress is a wardrobe essential. Most recently displayed during my last trip to Italy, where I wore it during an aperitivo hour, I like to dress up Sunday Ritual’s sleeveless Emilia Black Dress with a pair of heels for the evening or dress it down with a pair of sneakers for the daytime.
Regarding travel skincare, keeping my skin refreshed is of utmost importance. The Light Moisture & Brightening Duo by Cocokind comprises a simple two-step vitamin C glow serum and texture smoothing cream that provides lightweight hydration to improve skin tone gently.
Discovering Honest Beauty’s Get Clarity Foaming Acne Cleanser was game-changing for my skincare toiletries. It easily washes away makeup, dirt, and excess oil from the skin while helping fight acne and prevent breakouts.
