I have spent the last few months worrying about what clothes I was going to take on my European Adventure. To be totally honest I have been worrying about it since January when I received my ticket for my birthday!! Clothes are kind of important to me and I stress over them. I need to be sure I am prepared for whatever or wherever I may go, I want to look good and cute and fit everything into one suitcase (that’s the real challenge).
Since Cali has been in London I have used her bed as my wardrobe display. I have had clothes spread all over her bed for weeks now. I got lots of great advice from people on what to pack. Everyone told me to pack light. Packing light is not something I am use to but I knew I had to so I would have room in my suitcase to bring things home.
So I thought some of you might enjoy seeing what I ended up with. I think I did o.k. and I’m sure I probably have too much but oh well…..at least it all fits in my suitcase.
I am a cardigan girl so I am bringing a few (7 to be exact) of those. I figure layers are good…
and a bunch of t-shirts to wear under the cardigans…. I’ve kind of got a thing for stripes going on but they wear those alot in Paris, don’t they??
And then for bottoms I am taking two comfy, knit skirts…
I can dress the black one up for night time when we go to the theater etc. I am taking 4 pairs of pants (wearing one of them!) I am taking my black and dark blue skinny jeans, a pair of denim cropped pants and my great knit black ankle length pants that go with everything, don’t wrinkle and are so comfortable.
I am not taking much jewelry, just my basic necklace I wear everyday. It goes with everything. To jazz up the basic t-shirts I am taking I am bringing along a few scarves and a black pashmina to keep me warm on the plane. A couple of belts too!
For shoes I got it down to four pairs, which includes the pair I will be wearing. They are all super comfortable and they are well broken in. I was told that no one in Europe wears running style shoes so I am taking a cute pair of Simple sneakers that I think will work and not look too touristy.
Some pretty basic pieces but everything can be mixed and matched. Here’s a few of the outfits I put together.
I also threw in a pair of black cropped leggings I can wear under the skirts if it is cold or windy.
and a little dressier look.
The other thing I am taking is my denim jacket and one other jacket. Between the two of them they go with everything else I am taking. I will wear the green one on the plane.
A few more top combos that will go with my jeans or black pants. Lots of options.
And here is what I will on the plane there and back.
Well, what do you think? Too much or just right??
