With Easter nearly upon us there are lots of you travelling around the globe, whether you are staying fairly local or going abroad doesn’t change your packing dilemmas….sometimes we pack in such a rush that what tends to happen is you chuck in all your favourite things but don’t actually think about what you going to wear those heart print shorts! If you cant be bothered to plan and think ahead about each day then a great idea is to pack a palette of colours that you can mix and match and that way just about everything in your suitcase should be able to be matched up more than once. The other difficulty is when you are going somewhere during Spring or Autumn and the weather can be so changeable and unpredictable that you don’t know whether (no pun intended) to pack for warm or cold, and as it’s April, no matter where you are headed that’s bound to be a problem as in most parts of the world with a few exceptions (of major season changes) its either going to be Spring or Autumn.
Hopefully this will inspire your packing woes, if they exist! I have included the following:
6 tops, 2 shorts, 2 pairs of trousers (incl jeans), 2 light weight jackets for in-between weather, 2 small bags (easily packable), 4 pairs of shoes and 3 dresses (which can be dressed up or down), a scarf and I have included a lace bra (obviously you would pack extra underwear). Bearing in mind you would travel in one of these outfits and you would most likely wear the jeans, a long sleeve top, a jacket, shoes, the scarf (because it always gets chilly on airplanes) and the cross body bag for keeping passports, phone and wallet close by and safe. So already you have minimised the items in your suitcase by quite a bit. There are even more outfit combos than I have put together below but there would just be way too many to show them all, but you get the idea…..don’t be overwhelmed by all these combinations, basically there are a few items and everything goes with everything, simple!
