I’m kind of excited to coast in to the weekend for two reasons:

1. The weather is supposed to go up to 10°C + which means we can spend some real time outdoors and open all the windows to air everything out. I hope this means we will get an early spring. I love spring.
2. It is a long weekend. Monday is “Family Day” which is a designated holiday to spend time off work with your family. The only bad part is that everything we may want to do as a family is going to be filled with a million other people with the same idea.

On to today’s post. These are the 24 outfit options that I put together from the What to Pack for Amsterdam packing list. The list was by Instagram request, for a 14 day June trip to Amsterdam, Berlin, and Paris. The selections are plus size as per request and the 24 outfits (with room to make more) will take you through all kinds of activities (minus really formal or adventure tourism wear). The options do cover dressy dinners, walking, sightseeing, shopping, and a variety of temperatures. I hope these suggestions give some good ideas of what you could wear and pack for Amsterdam.

How is the weather where you are right now?

What to Wear on a Danube River Cruise Outfit Options

What to Wear on a Danube River Cruise Outfit Options 1-12 #packinglight #travellight #travel #traveltips #livelovesara

White T-shirt • H&M | Black Dressy Top • Mango Outlet | Wrap Top • Mango | Black Polka Dot Blouse • Marks and Spencer | Burgundy Oversized Sweater • Uniqlo | Black Cowl Neck • Madewell | Grey Pullover • Madewell | Blazer • H&M | Dress • Marks and Spencer | Casual Denim • H&M | Dark Denim • H&M | Black Trousers • H&M | Coat • Mango | Hat • Azalea | Gloves • Uniqlo | Scarf • Nordstrom | Sunglasses • Quay | Heels • Louise et Cie | Boots • Topshop | Sneakers • Saucony | Purse • Asos | Crossbody • Humble Chic NY

Did anyone do anything eventful this week? I found it kind of just flew by while I watched the news and picked my jaw off the floor on several occasions. Just when you think it can’t get worse it does, I guess I should stop being shocked.  What I am really enjoying in these low moments are the bands of people who are coming together. It is so inspiring and gives me hope. There are so many more good people than bad, we just have to have a louder voice.

Now after that bit of emotional purge I am showing the 24 outfit options that I put together from the pieces of the What to Pack for a Danube River Cruise list. The cruise takes place in April for 8 days, so the weather will be cooler in general. Even more so on the water and during evenings. If you are someone who can’t tolerate cold at all you may want to bring a long sleeve thermal shirt/leggings to layer under your clothes. If you come from a place that experiences colder winters you should be fine.

I put together 24 outfits but there is room to make a lot more when you take in to account that you can switch up looks by layering the blazer over. The black sweater has a removable cowl neck so you will have two different looks with the sweater, the scarf is reversible to black, and the clutch has removable strap to make it a cross body. These small changes make everything more versatile. This cruise incorporates one really dressy dinner which is why I included heels. On most occasions I would have included another pair of flats instead of the heels. I hope this gives you some ideas for an early spring cruise on the Danube River.

I’m spending this evening drawing The Chipmunks and Chipettes for my 6-year-old. I promised her I would if she had a good week and she did. I kind of wish I promised one not 6 though :/ Any great plans this weekend?

It’s Friday, but not quite the Friyay people like to express on social media because my large plans for this weekend are to attempt to unf’*ck my habitat and go to Chuck E Cheese. I have a hate/hate relationship with Chuck E Cheese since going for Roo’s 3rd birthday. Aside from the animatronics being creepy af, I sliced my hand open on a stupid arcade style game within 3 minutes of arriving and bled the entire time even with my makeshift tourniquet ;) Plus the crowds, not just crowds but the weekend crowds :/ Tom wants to take the girls though and I’ll just look like a big meanie if I say I don’t want to go. I’d rather go to Ikea.

Today’s post is the 24 outfit options to go with the pieces from the What to Pack for Central Europe packing list. Check out that post for the details of the trip and list. The key to packing light aside from versatile, mix and match pieces is to roll your items, and use some packing cubes. Dust bags are also good for your shoes and intimates. I just keep any footwear size bag that comes as various packaging with items. If you don’t get what I mean here is an example: I just bought a flat sheet and it came in a shoe sized rectangular cotton bag with and elastic closing. I keep things like this because it will work to store shoes, and or intimates when travelling or for storage. This is the type of thing I always yell at my husband for, when he keeps things because they may have future use. The difference is that I know for a fact that he will never find use for his objects, he just hates to throw things out.

The outfit options are to show you how you can get a lot of different looks that will cover a variety of outings and temperatures. The weather at this time of year can vary through central Europe, especially in the mountains and at night. Layers will take you through any temperature changes you will experience throughout the day. Nighttime gets cooler as well so a light, waterproof jacket is recommended.

Do you have any exciting weekend plans?

Seriously, I can’t believe it’s Friday already. In the craziness that was this week it seemed to go by so quickly. And by craziness I’m talking about all the insane news shit we are being bombarded with at a scary rapid rate. This week has been jam-packed with all kinds of face palm worthy moments. I hope you are all making it through okay.

Friday’s are generally an outfit post day to go with the week’s packing list…..unless I switch things up just to mess with you guys ;) But this week I am sticking with the regular schedule because I said I would have this post done for the end of January – beginning of February. These are 24 outfits that come from the pieces of the What to Pack for Phoenix, Arizona 10 days list from Wednesday. A quick summary of the post is that it is a March trip to watch their favourite sports team The Seattle Mariners (which is what the colour palette is based on), decent coverage for sun sensitivity is necessary, flats preferred, and a generally casual trip involving watching games, dinners, and hanging with friends.

The colour palette was a little hard to accommodate because the green is a tough one to match perfectly, and it’s hard to incorporate silver without involving sequins or vegas worthy bodycon dresses ;) So I hope that I was able to pull together and do your vision justice. Thanks for the request.

Have a good weekend everyone.

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!
