Just wear one twice. Nobody will notice, and if they do ...well they should understand you’re traveling. If you need to, make use of the hotel laundering service.

PS at the minimum, always bring extra underwear! You never know 🤷‍♀️

Always pack 2 extra days if possible (at least 2 extra underwear, socks and undershirts) for situations where your client asks you to stay or you have travel issues. Hopefully you never need it but that 1 time you do you’ll be glad you came prepared

Let me assure you, no one will notice. Take a second to consider if you'd notice someone else in the office wearing the same outfit every day, I wouldn't.

Just wear an undershirt. You should never wear a shirt twice in one week and you should never buy a shirt you don't need. Just make sure to wear an undershirt under your undershirt.

If you packed 4 shirts, assuming you flew in your work clothes on Monday, shouldn’t you be fine and have a clean 5th shirt? Maybe this was all a trick question.

It’s a “boys weekend” (kids w/dad). Their grandad is also in town, since Wed. Dad has called to ask to have the boys in the evenings (i have W &Th, always). I have said “ok, but only if you don’t say anything negative about the polish.” So… they haven’t seen them. This hurts.
