Lighten Your Load The natural nomad is less concerned with what she takes with her than what she is bound to find. Encumber yourself with as little as possible. Minimize your makeup. Greet the fresh day with a fresh face. Rub in a tinted moisturizer (with SPF!), dust a neutral matte on your eyelids, and kiss your cheeks with a rusty rose. Treat your hair to a vacation as well. Leave your tools and products behind. Untangle washed locks with a widetoothed comb and let your tresses airdry and fall how they may. If you’re headed for active adventures, bun it, braid it, or even bandana it, but for just a few days, don’t make it do anything it doesn’t naturally do. Pack with purpose. The tried-and-true method for slimming your suitcase is to make sure every piece is both useful and versatile. A light field jacket. If your journey takes you anywhere with altitude, you can count on an overnight chill. Tees and jeans. The mix-and-matchability of your favorite basics can turn a handful of garments into dozens of outfits. Worn-in boots. Now is not the time to break in a new pair, but boots are durable, easy to slip on and off, and if you’ve got a good pair, they’re the most comfortable footwear you own. A hat. If your adventure leads you outdoors, your hat has you covered. Plus, it’s an excellent quick-fix if your hair isn’t adjusting well to its “vacation”.
