Packing for any type of trip — regardless of length — has always been an agonizing process for me. Terrified that I might be without the perfect eyeshadow or shoes for a given occasion, I always overpack to the extreme — only to end up wearing the same pair of jeans my entire stay. This year I am putting an end to unnecessary schlepping of luggage by whittling my packing routine down to the essentials. Here is the (much lighter!) load you will spot me toting next time I travel:

1. Tool Jacquard Weekender, $198, Not only do I love the rich mix of weathered leather and heavy fabric on this retro-looking bag, but it is the perfect size for a carry-on.

2. Current/Elliott The Cropped Skinny, $213, A slightly cropped skinny jean is the ideal silhouette for travel. The material allows you to wear it a few times without washing and the length works with any type of shoe.
