How To: Pack for A Month

How to Pack for A Month

Light, Stylish, Single Bag Travel for Spring / Summer.

Since 2013, I’ve been keeping up with the tradition of taking a month off every year to travel a new country. That said, I suppose I can say that I’ve perfected my packing skills by now. When curating my suitcase content for this 38-day coast-to-coast trip in USA, I was surprised to find that I had extra space in my suitcase, and even more thrilled when I returned with outfits I didn’t utilise!

I learned the trick is to always have a ‘main piece’ that can match almost anything. How do you identify a ‘main piece’? For tops, choose nude, white or black. For bottoms, a black and blue pair of denim will do you good. These are your essentials. Same rule applies for bags and shoes. Here is my fail-proof one bag travel packing list you can use as a guide for your next huge trip.

1-Month Packing Formula:

  • Always bring bikinis; you don’t know when you need them. Mix-match 2 pairs to get 4 looks
  • Bring light accessories; leave chunky and expensive jewelries home
  • 3 handbags: 1 large, 1 clutch, 1 of your choice (1 in black, 1 nude, 1 of your choice)
  • 3 pairs of shoes: 1 white sneakers (I like Adidas Superstars), nude sandals, gold / silver heels, a pair of Havaianas
  • 10 tops: Must have – ecru and black pieces
  • 2 pairs of jeans: blue and black (I like skinny because they can easily match any type of shoes)
  • 1 shorts
  • 1 overall
  • 4 skirts
  • 4 light fabric dresses (1 LBD is a must)
  • 3 outer wear or less (my classic GAP hoodie is my airport-best-friend)
  • Light PJs only
  • 2 pairs of gym attires (if you like to keep fit when traveling)
  • Lingerie and underwears (include: G-strings, nude colored panties, disposable under wears, panty liners and pads)
  • Optional: a belt and a scarf
