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
