I’m pretty good at packing lightly, although for the most part I choose not to! Instead, I like to pre-plan my outfits for a trip overseas because I LOVE to look good when I’m doing my most favorite thing, i.e. seeing the world. Dubai has a special place in my heart and because we love to fly Emirates, it’s a place I’m sure we will always go back to (since all flights stop in Dubai). Another great thing about flying Emirates is the insane baggage allowance they give you (two checked-in bags of 23kgs each on top of your hand luggage) so it really allows me to pack whatever I feel like packing, plus Malick doesn’t let me carry or pull or push a single bag so… Sorry not sorry! And no, this post is not sponsored by the airline, they’re genuinely just my favorite to travel with. I’m going to do a video though on how to pack light-ish and stay stylish on a trip, if there are any extra areas you want me to cover, let me know!
