What I Pack

Designer Lauren Renfrow on her travel essentials.


“I want my 10-year-old daughter to know there’s a big world outside of her stomping grounds,” says Lauren Renfrow. The Dallas-based owner of Times Two Design, a home decor company, also travels for creative inspiration. Whether on a London-and-Cotswolds jaunt for her mother’s 70th birthday or a ski weekend in Park City with friends during Sundance, Renfrow packs a carry-on. “I can’t stand toting a monster bag,” she says. She entrusts Virtuoso travel advisor Lila Fox of New Orleans to handle every detail: “Her taste is impeccable, and her spirit of adventure is contagious. From arranging a car service or tour guide to an extra welcome at the hotel, Lila makes traveling an absolute breeze.”
1. Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel pads for looking refreshed. 
2. A Diane von Furstenberg  woven cashmere scarf for the plane – and as a complement for travel outfits. 
3. A Moleskine soft-cover journal to jot down ideas that pop into my mind.
4. My small, lightweight Chanel Wallet on a Chain keeps my essentials organized with just enough space for my phone.

5. Perky Jerky, in the turkey Sweet & Snappy flavor, for refueling.
