This is Part 2: Outfit Options for What to Pack for London, England from my last post. I put together 20 example outfit ideas from the pieces I included in the packing list. The Trip is for London at Christmas and New Years so some juggling with the footwear might be necessary depending if there is any precipitation on the ground. For each outfit option it is assumed you will be wearing a coat, I just don’t include it in all of them because it is to cluttered looking. Every piece is easily layered under the sweaters or cardigan, even sweaters can be layered under the cardigan you need extra warmth.

I suggested in the last post that wearing your heaviest and bulkiest pieces and rolling the rest of your items will save room in your suitcase and let you to pack any small gifts you may be bringing with you for the holidays. I hope that I was able to give you some outfit ideas for your trip. Thanks for the request and have a great Christmas in London.

Don’t you hate it when you go out for one thing (hamburger meat for dinner) and end up getting 10 other things that weren’t even from the grocery store? We made a quick afternoon run, down one block to the Rabba which is like a bodega to pick up some hamburger meat so I could make chill for dinner. When we got they the girls decided the day was too nice and they wanted to walk to the mall and go to the grocery store there. It’s cheaper anyway so we went. Of course we side-tracked into Hot Topic because we have to walk right past it and the girls ended up with some things that I wish I could have saved for Christmas or their birthday but there was no way I could buy them in secret and said items were selling out fast. Man, kids are expensive :/

This post is the outfit options to for the What to Pack for New York City 4 Days in December list. A 4 day trip to NYC for Christmas with your girlfriends. The trip includes lots of walking around, sightseeing, dinners, and the theatre, and the outfit options will work for each of these scenarios. I only put together 10 outfits since this is a 4 day trip but there are many more combinations that are possible. For more information about the trip and packing list selections, go to the post I linked above.

Signing off because I ate too many cookies and I feel sick. Until next time ;)

These are the outfit options that go with the What to Pack in Boston and San Francisco packing list. This was a request list for an Australian woman who is running the Boston Marathon in April. She is also extending her trip to include San Francisco and needed some ideas. Her running gear is taking up room in her carry-on so I only included two pairs of shoes. The temperature in these cities can range from 11*C to 16°C but may fluctuate higher or lower due to April’s unpredictability.

The requests were simple 3 weeks worth of outfits with an Audrey Hepburn/classic look and a Euro twist. She likes skinny jeans, trenches, and moto jackets with a colour palette of navy and black. Classic, comfortable, practical (two young kids) and easy to wear. I came up with 20 outfit options that can easily be replicated with pieces that you may already own.

I hope these can give you some inspirational for what to bring and wear on your trip.

Here are the 20 outfit options that I put together from the What to Pack for 10 Days in Spain in Winter packing list. This was a request based on a 10 day December/January trip to the Murcia region of Spain. It is a visit to meet the family of a significant other for the first time and she wanted to pack smart, while still keeping a casual elegance with a slight edge.

The average temperature for this region at this time of the year is 10°C-12°C which is a comfortable range without having to worry about winter storms or extreme cold. Although the chance of rainfall is higher at this time of year. For 10 days I put together 20 options that will cover a variety of situations from casual to a dressy New Years Eve party if needed.

I always recommend wearing your bulkiest and heaviest pieces layered on your flight to lighten your carry-on and since the reader is coming from a warmer, humid destination this is especially true. Wear your warmest pieces so that you aren’t too affected by the change in weather when you arrive at your destination (or if there are any layovers in colder cities). Have a great time!

Happy Friday guys! We are going to “Hogwarts” tomorrow :)

Spending 5 days in Paris followed by a 7 day cruise along the Rhone River sounds like an incredible honeymoon, which is what these outfits were put together for. This is the outfit option post from What to Pack for Paris, France in the Spring (where you can see all the pieces laid out in a packing list fashion). While the trip is for 12 days I put together 20 outfit ideas that would take you through a variety of outings. Sightseeing, dinners of ranging levels of formal, walking, shopping, or just hanging out on the cruise ship enjoying the view.

April is an unpredictable month weather wise so I included a lot of sweaters and easy to layer items. Tights, or leggings are a good option to bring to layer underneath skirts, dresses, and even jeans if there is a really cold spell or on the boat where it can feel colder on the water. I really like this colour palette, and one of my favourite colours accents to add to blue, black, grey, and white is camel. It is only in 3 pieces (flats, cardigan, and scarf) but it really pops when you scroll through. I think an important step in putting together a travel wardrobe is to pick an accent colour that really contrasts nicely with what you have. It really ties things together.

Next week is a packing list for Murcia, Spain in Late December – early January.

Red is the accent colour I seem to have in my personal wardrobe, but I would really like to introduce more camel tones because I love it. Do you have a favourite accent colour?
