Packing dilemma - solved!

Packing for vacation is never an easy feat for some clothes hoarding fashionistas.
In prepping for our little 8 day trip to Chicago, I decided to take a different tact that was super inspired by the lovely (former) blogger at What a Nerd Would Wear (1 & 2)
The point is - remix remix remix! Amirite?!

After spending an inordinate amount of time in my closet I came up with this one tiny pile:

Of course I'll be wearing a pair of sandals, a dress and a cardi for the flight, and this pile doesn't include my undergarments, makeup and curling iron. But even with those additions, I'll easily be able to slide this into a carry on. (Since we are going to be staying with my parents, I have the luxury of not having to take loads of toiletries either!)
I was crazy impressed with my tiny clothing pile, and even more happy with all the outfit possibilities. In the end, I'll have the following:

  • 2 pairs of shoes
  • 4 dresses
  • 5 shirts (includes a tee that I'll use as jammies but can pull out for a lazy day!)
  • 2 pairs of shorts
  • 1 pair of cropped jeans
  • 1 cardigan
  • 1 scarf, 3 pairs of earrings, 1 necklace, 1 belt
Here are the outfits I'm planning on, but in the end, if I need to mix and match I have loads more opportunities!  I'm slightly sad about my lack of patterns, but neutrals make mix and matching crazy easy!
