I have 18 days till i leave for England for serious Tomily time :) :) :)
Which translates to...
I have 18 days to figure out what the heck i'm going to pack for a 5 month trip
I should be given an award for being the worst
packer in the history of packing.
I always wait till last minute and then pack
tons of clothes that i don't even wear.
And if that wasn't bad enough i just throw
my clothes/shoes/accessories in there like they
mean absolutely nothing to me, and well
that's just not the case...
So since i'll be gone for so long
I really really need to do a good job with this packing thing.
So i'm really trying to become a professional packer
in 18 short days, it could really go either way...
I know the first step is categorizing.
The four essentials to any wardrobe.
I also know that while color is good it's best
to pack a lot of neutral items that you can mix and match.
Then add pops of color with accessories.
Here is my current packing list.
Outerwear - One nice coat/neutral sweater/green comfy jacket.
Tops - Neutral sweaters/denim top/white blouse/striped shirt.
Dresses - one short solid color dress/one maxi colorful dress.
Bottoms - Black jeans/one black skirt.
Obviously i'll add to this, and probably pack multiples of each item.
Since i'm staying for so long it's important to have enough clothing.
But at the same time there is some serious shopping that could
be done at the drop of a hat if i happen to forget anything.
I feel like the key to packing long term is to pack
the essentials in neutral colors.
Bring comfy/casual/dressy so you'll always be ready for any occasion.
I'm hoping that when i actually start packing
these tips will help me to stay on point
and not overpack.
Do you have any packing tips
that could help me out?
I'd love to hear them.
Have a wonderful day, It's almost CHRISTMAS!!! :)
