Must pack list Business trips

Today we are starting a new 7 day series, this time focusing on must pack lists. Today for our first post will be on the must haves for business trips. I travel a lot for business & I always want to make sure I have all that I need so that i’m not stuck out of town without a necessity.


What will you wear:

  • Is there a dress code for whatever events/meetings etc. you will be attending?
  • Will there only be the one function or multiple?
  • How long will you be gone?
  • What is the weather forecast?

For example:

I have a 3 day trip next month. I will be in three meetings (business), have 1 night out with my friends who live in the city (casual)I am going to & have one awards ceremony (formal) My hotel also has a pool. So here are my outfits.




1 purse | 1 pair of shoes | 1 pair of jeans | 1 skirt | 1 pair of dress pants | PJs | Swim wear
