Don’t be alarmed: this post isn’t written by Krystal. Today, I’m taking over this little corner of This Time Tomorrow, so let me introduce myself. Hi! I’m Nora, Krystal’s editorial assistant. I’m a rising senior at New York University majoring in media and communication, and I’ve been following TTT since I was in middle school (!). Krystal’s was the first fashion blog I ever kept up with, back when blogs were still burgeoning forms of self-expression and not powerhouse businesses. She inspired me to be unafraid in my fashion choices (I once wore a cardigan backwards to school after seeing it on TTT, eliciting some strange looks from classmates but feeling great the whole time) and undaunted by lofty goals and aspirations (I mean, who wouldn’t want to work for a huge tech company and be a successful influencer on the side). When Krystal took the plunge and moved to NYC from San Francisco, I had already been here for about a year and felt like it was fate that we were finally in the same city. Becoming her editorial assistant has been no less than a dream come true!
A little about me: I’m a photographer (Instagram is definitely my most-used app), avid coffee drinker (my boyfriend is a barista at a Harlem coffee shop), Wes Anderson fanatic, and I’ve watched Friends too many times to count (but my favorite TV shows include off-air classics like The O.C., Gilmore Girls, and The West Wing). I love New York like no other city, and absolutely adore exploring every corner of it. I can’t imagine being anywhere else.
Okay, phew! Intro over. Now to the real reason we’re here. With Krystal off to Australia this week and my own upcoming travels home to Cleveland, Ohio — less exotic but, in some ways, equally exciting — we have to talk about warm-weather travel essentials. I spent last spring abroad in Paris, and with weekend trips abound, I had to learn what I really needed and what I didn’t when packing my tiny carry-on. I like to divide it up into a few basic categories: hair, accessories, clothes, and swimwear. Below you can find my tried-and-true favorites to bring along on your next getaway. Don’t forget your passport!
