I haven’t actually got the suitcase out yet, but I’ve been doing some serious packing on paper for our upcoming trip. I had a few essentials already (jeans, camera bag, scarf, boots and a few tops) but this Australian girl needed to pick up some new woolies to cope with the European winter.
When I went shopping for the new gear, I made sure every piece could be mixed and matched with other items in terms of colour and style. Versatility is important too, such as the long jumper that I can wear over jeans for a day of sightseeing then wear it as a dress over tights to go out to dinner.
The same goes for which existing items in my wardrobe would make the final cut – you can bet I’m taking the teal tutleneck instead of the pink one that wouldn’t have gone with anything.
By doing this I’m able to keep my clothing and accessories to a minimum while we’re travelling. And you know what that means – more room in the case for souvenirs!
