Over the past week I have noticed a huge influx of traffic to my summer vacation packing lists. Mainly my Italy based ones, especially the Florence packing list.

So if you are headed there, be warned that apparently a lot of other people are too.

I haven’t made a packing list in a while. It felt weird and pointless with everything that was going on, but with so many restrictions worldwide starting to lift, people seem to be beginning to dip their toes into travelling again.

Packing for Holidays

At picture of a brick wall with a holiday wreath in the center and below laid out in rows are the clothes to pack for the holidays.

Turtleneck | Bodysuit | Blouse | Sweatshirt | Striped Sweater | Oversized Sweater | Cardigan | Denim | Black Pants | Trousers | Dress | Wool Coat | Pyjamas | Bra | Socks | Underwear | Earrings | Knit Hat | Scarf | High Boots | Sneakers | Warm Boots | Black Purse | Tote |

As you have already sat down to your Thanksgiving dinners and have made your game plans for Black Friday shopping tomorrow and are heading to bed (or most likely in bed already), I probably should have scheduled this Holiday packing list for last week instead.

The obsessive and controlling part of my brain had other plans and wanted to make sure that I completed the last post in the Dressing for your Body Shape Series posts before I jumped back to something else though.

London Packing List

A white background with a photo of the thames and London Clock Tower at the top. Below is a layout of what you should pack for London in the fall.

T-shirt | Bodysuit | Blue Blouse | White Blouse | Sweatshirt | Black Sweater | Striped Sweater | Oversized Plaid | Raincoat | Sweater Dress | Trousers | Jeans | Black Trousers | Stirrups | Quilted Jacket | Sunglasses | Mask | Earrings | Loafers | Sneakers | Boots | Black Purse | Tote |
