SHOP THE POST
This one is going to be a long one. Not long in words but with big long picture lists so I apologize if the page takes a while to load. I was going to cover everything in a few separate posts but figured it would be tedious for you to have to flip to different posts to find everything that is pertaining to this topic.
After I finally figured out my capsule wardrobe for spring/summer (through that long tedious process) I began to wonder how well it would translate into packing for trips.
I am not a huge, get super-fancy dressed up type of person and my wardrobe reflects that. I wanted to be able to come up with a packing list that gives me easy day options to-night options. Or as I like to think of it day/casual with the ability to dress it up and take it to-night time if the need arises.
I chose a 10 day list because 7 seemed too short to test my wardrobe’s versatility, but 10 seemed to be long enough come up with 10 different day outfits that could easily be changed to-night by swapping shoes and/or accessories, a purse, and fancier hair-do.
This ten-day packing list that I came up with basically gives you 20+ outfits with the ability to make more if needed and it is all completed with 20 pieces in the carry-on plus what you wear on the plane.
I planned it out so the bulkier, heavier items are to be worn on the plane to make sure it all fits in the carry-on. The plane outfit consists of jeans, tank, pullover, jacket, hat, necklace, boots, watch, sunglasses, and a purse. In the carry- on are 4 tops, cardigan, blazer, 2 dresses, 2 pants, scarf, 3 necklaces, a hat, a dressier purse, and 4 pairs of shoes.
Make sure to have at least one pair of dressy shoes for night wear, and if you decided to pack a hat make sure that it is one that will survive being placed in a suitcase. I learned the hard way that straw hats do not pack well.
Ugh. I was having some major issues with my paths on Photoshop. They weren’t transferring through in jpg format, so I had to go back in and try to get them in there. One ended up with thick lines and one with thin somewhat broken ones. This is why I need a Photoshop course. Big Time. Oh well, I am learning as I go I guess and they turned out somewhat okay.
