Within a Single Carry On Luggage
Nov 20, 2012
I thought I’d do a quick “packing” entry. Since this is an evolving learning experience I’d like to continue practicing.
I’m visiting family for Thanksgiving this week. The temperature there is now 37F – 73F and I decided to stick to a classic casual theme. I had started working this out a few weeks ago but now that I have the weather forecast to go by it got easier to plan.
- art dot dress //madewell
- striped top //yesstyle
- micro dot patterned oxford //uniqlo
- black skinny jeans //old navy
- black pencil skirt //banana republic
- red peacoat //h&m
- tokyo storyteller scarf //madewell
- black flats //payless
- fold-over tote bag //yesstyle
- tights (not shown)
First I took into consideration my current favorite items.
Next was temperature of course.
Followed by aesthetic.
Though being comfortable is important when lazing around with family, I also knew I’d like to look a bit presentable and maybe even somewhat matured when going out or attending the family gatherings. So I felt most comfortable with some clean classics. A basic palette of black, white, and red. The skinnies & striped top are extremely comfortable too. I’m actually wearing that on the plane. So pair the striped top with the pencil skirt and it balances out the relaxed/stiffness level. Same with the somewhat formal white dotted oxford and cotton soft skinnies. Most of all I still needed to feel comfortable in my own skin. Which I don’t when wearing just blue jeans and baggy t-shirts. :dizzy:
I’m bringing a few tights of various thickness as well. It can be challenging to pack for such a temperature change all the while sticking to a single carry on luggage.
- dot dress +/- coat
- striped top + skinnies +/- coat
- striped top + skinnies + dot blouse +/- coat
- striped top + skirt +/- coat
- striped top + skirt + dot blouse +/- coat
- striped top + dot dress +/- coat
- dot blouse + skinnies +/- coat
- dot blouse + skirt +/- coat
8~16 looks depending on whether or not you count the coat. I count the addition of a coat as changing the look but that’s me :)
Worked out pretty great when I did this last year. Hopefully it’ll feel a tad warmer since it’s Thanksgiving & not New Year’s this time!
