If you could only pack 5 things for your next trip, what would they be?

1.  For starters, a good book. I have a growing collection of novels that I've impulsively purchased over the years, and I am always carrying something to read.

2. I tend to do monochromatic schemes more often than not--mostly black because it's an easy color to work with. That being said, I would pack a pair of black jeans, most likely a pair of BDG Skinny High-Rise jeans.

3. My Chan Luu bracelet. 

4. I thrifted a great pair of BCBGirls boots from a Salvation Army in Chelsea. They're my go-to shoes. 

5. My Moleskine journal. I like to write when I visit coffee shops or parks. Plus, it's great for jotting down directions.

Where would you travel to next?

Prague, Czech Republic.

In one sentence, how would you describe your thought process to packing.

"Will this fit in my carry-on?"
