The cold that I thought I was fighting off earlier in the week decided to hit me full force on Thursday with a fever and coughing. I have been an epic cougher since I was a child. I have even had to get off buses way before my stop because I am coughing so bad that it gets super embarrassing and people think I have some contagious disease(true story, multiple occasions). So I try to stay out of public as much as possible during the worst of it. I’m glad there isn’t a heck of a lot on my plate Thursday and Friday.

I did manage to finish this post though which is good. These are the outfit options to my What to Pack for Venice, Italy 3 week list. I put together 20 outfits from the pieces but there is room to make many more depending on the weather and activities. I know I always say it, but I think this list may be one of my favourites. I would love to have every piece in my wardrobe.

And with that I am going to sign off in hopes that the kids will go to bed and I can get some sleep. Have a great weekend guys!

Often when I do packing posts they are for single locations, but occasionally I get requests for several cities (many times within the same country). So I have to do a little research on averages, highs, and lows of temperatures as well as precipitation. I also take in to account the types of activities that each city offers, as well as some dos and don’ts of fashion (some places are much more conservative, while others quite laid back). These are the types of things that affect any clothing choices I may make, even if it’s just a suggested sample wardrobe.

While this list says What to Pack for Venice, Italy this trip is also encompassing Florence, Rome, Taormina Sicily, Sorrento, and Capri. I noted that the average temperatures for these locations are all within a closer range so the packing options will be easier. This trip is planned for May and will cover all these cities over a 2 1/2 week span. As for weather this time of year is considered prime for many because you have not hit full tourist season, the flowers are in full bloom, it is not yet too hot like mid summer. The average is 19°C with a high of the mid 20°C’s and a low of 13°C.

Mornings can leans towards cool so a light scarf, and jacket will suffice, as well as for evenings. Dark, slim jeans are always a good option, with light blouses, or long sleeves. I included a couple of dresses (but a skirt would work too), the blazer is very versatile because it can also be tied at the waist to look like a cardigan (the retail photos show you how you can wear it). For footwear I suggest sticking to flats because of the cobblestone streets, stairs, and the amount of walking that you will probably be doing. A running shoe and Chelsea boot give some good walking shoe options as well as for cooler temperatures. The mule is a dressier option but also works well when the day warms up, but a sandal or ballet flat would also be a good choice.

Outfit Options will be in the next post.

What is your perfect temperature? Mine is 17°C.

Quick and to the point today because I have a puking child :/ These are the outfit options to last posts What to Pack for Vancouver, British Columbia list. It’s actually for the destinations of Denver, Colorado and Vancouver but since both destinations have similar temperature ranges during the point of this trip you should be pretty well covered. Someone mentioned that a water/wind proof jacket would be a good addition because the rain and wind in Vancouver have the tendency to be strong especially if you are venturing off from the city to do some sightseeing.

Coming from a colder climate the temperatures will feel warmer to you, coming from a warmer climate it will feel colder so pack accordingly since this is never a one size fits all sort of deal. An extra sweater, or a knit hat would be good additions.

Vancouver is an amazingly beautiful city, the views and the landscape are breathtaking so I really hope your enjoy this trip.

Happy weekend guys. I hope the sickness doesn’t take anyone else down.

My father was in the air force and when I was a kid I moved a lot. Not as much as a lot of military families but a fair amount. From ages 4 – almost 9 I lived in Victoria, British Columbia which is just a ferry ride across from Vancouver. My grandmother lived in Vancouver so we went there a lot and I loved it. I can honestly say the years there were the best of my childhood, the ones I remember most fondly.  I would love to be able to live in Vancouver but it’s so expensive that I can’t see it ever becoming a reality even though it is the only other city in Canada that Tom would be able to work in for film. Vancouver and Toronto are the two Canadian film cities.

This packing list actually covers two cities but they are of similar climates. I received a request for a 5-week trip to Vancouver and Denver, Colorado in the middle of winter. The two cities don’t have long, drawn out, cold winters like many other cities. In fact they both start to get warmer in February and many times you will see flowers starting to bloom at that time (in Vancouver at least). I can remember my mom once having to mow the lawn in February which is pretty crazy.

I didn’t include any winter or cold weather boots in this list because honestly the snow is minimal (if any at all), the roads/sidewalks will be clear for walking, and the temperatures will range from around 7°C and up to the mid teens. But if you feel that you need some sort of winter boot then just omit one of the choices I included. Five weeks are a long time but with access to laundry you can get away without bring too much. You can change-up the looks a lot with different accessories so you shouldn’t get to board with not bringing a lot. Don’t forget that all the items listed aren’t to be packed. Your travel outfit comes from the pieces I include, and should be selected from the heavier/bulkier, harder to pack items that will take up the most room in your suitcase.

It’s been noted that a waterproof jacket might be a good idea to bring, an umbrella can easily be bought if needed but a waterproof jacket will come in handy especially if you are going to be doing a lot of out of the city walking and sightseeing. Something like this that has a lining, is hooded, and wind/waterproof will be sufficient because you can layer a sweater underneath. You also have to remember that what is considered cold to one person won’t be to another so if the temperatures are dramatically colder than you usually experience, then you need to pack accordingly since it will take a bit to acclimate. I have friends who go to Disney World every winter from here (Toronto area), and every single time they go they say that while they are running up and down the beach enjoying the weather which seems warm to them most Floridians wear coats and jackets because it is freezing to them. Dress for your personal comfort.

The outfit are found in this post.

Did you move around a lot as a child?

Today is my last post before Christmas and it is 20 outfit options that go with the What to Pack for Lisbon, Portugal packing list. The 20 options cover the 2 weeks that the list was made for but many more options can easily be put together.

There is tons of versatility in these pieces, like you can leave the shirt dress open wear it kimono style over the black dress or jeans/shorts, the scarf makes a good swimsuit cover, or shawl, and the blazer works as a light jacket or to dress an outfit up. Being able to use pieces in several different ways is what makes packing light easy. If you have trouble getting creative and coming up with different ways to wear what you have, companies like the Canadian company Encircled offer a large selection versatile pieces that will make your packing for your next trip ridiculously easy.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays guys! I’ll see you sometime next week.
