Do you always carry too much luggage? Do you struggle to decide what to pack?
On my recent trip I once again packed following my own guidelines as posted in 10 Simple Packing Tips to Stop Pre-Travel Trauma and, by wearing on the plane the bulkiest jacket and shoes, managed to have enough outfits and options for my 4 week trip.
In fact, my swimmers and a couple of summer tops were never worn. Once again the UK and France were not quite as warm as I expected!
I even took additional period clothes for the Classic Goodwood Revival Car Race where dressing for the occasion is a must for all spectators. This meant taking gloves, hat, shoes and a coat that I would not normally wear, and definitely not on holidays and did not re-wear during my holiday.
I have put together photos of some of my outfits taken whilst away. However, fair warning is now given … I am not a fashion blogger or model; my daughter took all photos on my iPhone6; and they are just my normal clothes that I took and wore on my holiday with my three children!! But you will get the gist.
So, please remember, it is really only just to give you an idea of how layering clothes and mixing and matching your wardrobe allows you to dress well, be comfortable and still only take a small bag. You will transit easily and enjoy your holiday more. No dragging large bags around and avoiding stairs. Yeh!!
PS. One more thought, if you take a jersey pyjama top that has a bit of lace or frills you can wear that with jeans as another outfit if really needed.
