Joan Didion's Packing List
The icon's iconic travel packing list. Taped to the inside of her closet during a period of frequent travel and reporting in the 70's, she crafted this essential list to be able to escape into anonymity while working anywhere a story could take her. Joan's utilitarian and understated style inspires us to pair down for this summer's trips. Make your life a little easier. Grab a maxi dress, sunglasses, and a pair of natural leather sandals. Think first, so when you're away from home your mind is free and your thoughts can wander. Maybe even write some of them down. Shop the edit below.
