Annie Williams’s Enviously Well-Packed Travel Bag
This will make you feel like a putz for checking luggage for a weekend trip.
In addition to making beauuutiful bags, running marathons, and skiing pretty much anything she can—you know, no big thang—Annie Williams is an avid traveler who’s headed off to India for the month of February. Embrace her essentials-only mindset to finally break free from that luggage carousel. —carlye wisel
“Eucalyptus, the earth’s natural antiseptic. Solid shampoo and solid toothpaste tabs from LUSH (no spills no mess!!!). Cinnamon, tea-tree toothpicks—perfect for when you can’t brush your teeth—and an Adventure towel, which holds three times its weight in water!”
“There’s no need to bring a lot of clothes! Women travelling to India will find the most respect and acceptance by wearing a traditional Indian kurti. And, it’s not common to wear shorts in India, but i can’t leave home without my favorite Wrangler cut-off shorts—in case of emergency.”
“Moleskine journal, zipper clutch, passport, Indian rupees, and a disposable camera. Without a phone on my person at all times, it’s nice to have a candid way to document the trip.”
“Though I’m trying to pack light, Dr. Bronner’s All-In-One Soap is essential! I use this for anything from washing my clothes to brushing my teeth.”
“Lastly, I’m bringing my best friend Nicole. She is responsible for building my website, shooting my lookbook, developing product, and making music videos for me. I couldn’t do most of what I do without her, including this trip.”
