Let’s start at the beginning. I’ve noticed one of the keys is to try everything on. This is a frankly unbelievable process. I asked Teri to explain. “You really want to love what you’re wearing on a trip and feel your best,” Teri tells me. “Sometimes things need to be repaired or dry cleaned, and sometimes something you loved six months ago just isn’t your favorite anymore. You want to make sure everything fits properly.”
Teri’s fabulous friend Kate, who is a stylist, will come over a week prior, and together they will pull a mini wardrobe for the trip. They put this mini wardrobe on Teri’s collapsible clothing rack, and after everything has been tried on, each outfit they choose is then photographed.

Teri packs her staples, of course. Her denim Frank and Eileen shirt, a pair of nice jeans, and a pair of black pants. But you also want to bring your favorite statement pieces for nights out or a fancy lunch, and for Teri, that’s a sequined skirt, some fun blouses, and a few t-shirts that can be mixed and matched with everything!
Teri absolutely loves her mala beads. But rather than packing jewelry for every outfit, Teri chooses just a few pieces that go with everything. “I generally travel with my turquoise malas,” she says, “and another little turquoise necklace, because it pretty much goes with everything and there’s less of a chance I’ll lose my jewelry.” For some people, khaki is a neutral. But for Teri, it’s turquoise and metallic.

Now I want to get into Teri’s master list. No one loves a list more than she does, and when packing for a trip, nothing is more useful. The “Master List” consists of every single item she’ll pack, from dry shampoo to a single house key (rather than her entire key ring, which is just so massive).
