Packing For A Quick Weekend In Shanghai

What is the perfect attire to wear while hunting down the best "Bo Lo Bao" in Shanghai?
|

Considering how often I travel, you’d think that I’ll be a total pro at picking out what to wear on press trips (fashion weeks are a slightly different story), but that’s not always the case. Plus, I’m quite the last minute packer. I don’t think about what to bring until the moment that I actually begin packing.

During times like these, like my recent trip to Shanghai for Revolve Clothing, I reach for my defaults – t-shirts, tailored pants, jackets and blazers, an assortment of hats and sunglasses, and, of course, denims. Can’t leave the last one behind. It’s a selection that makes sense. Comfortable enough for the touristy stuff – like Shanghai’s famous colonial stretch along The Bund, or the hunt for the best bo lo bao in the city – and dressy enough for press events. (Revolve brought us to The Grumpy Pig, a very photogenic cafe with a hilarious name and mascot.)

I like to bring along a sturdy tote bag – my current go-to is Celine’s oversized twisted Cabas – that’s roomy enough to hold bulky things like my camera, and still polished enough to go with my travel wardrobe, whether I’m dressed up or down. It’s also the bag I take along with me on flights, so that’s some luggage space saved. Don’t be fooled by its size – it’s large enough to fit my camera, laptop, chargers, headphones and then some. As for shoes – while I do pack dressier ones, I must have at least a pair of white sneakers (we love these and these)  and one of my trusty Gucci loafers with me. Even my “dressier” shoes are low-heeled. Just look at the Dior boots.
