sean and i are heading out of the country soon for about 11 days (eek!) and i got my packing done nice and early.
we’ve done quite a bit of international travel over our nearly 14 years of marriage and during those trips we have lost luggage several times! this time, i have decided to pack as light as possible and fit it all in a carry-on (one for each of us) so we can keep an eye on our luggage.
for the most part, this is all the clothes i’m packing. not shown are my running clothes, camisoles, under”things”, and a jacket.
1. leggings \\ 2. ankle length jeans \\ 3. ankle length black pants \\ 4. lightweight neutral cardigan (similar) \\ 5. long black cardigan \\ 6. 3/4 length sleeve cardigan (similar) \\ 7. grey v-neck t-shirt \\ 8. camo t-shirt (similar) \\ 9. striped shirt (similar) \\ 10. boho blouse (similar) \\ 11. dolman top (similar) \\ 12. shear lacey tank (similar)\\ 13. black tunic (similar) \\ 14. black cocktail dress (similar)
and these are the accessories and shoes i’m packing (plus my running shoes). i could definitely get away with just 3 pair if it were;t for the cocktail evenings and running.
my mom gave me these handy little packing bags from ikea and they are awesome! i was able to fit all of my clothes and accessories into them and they are nice and organized.
there are so many options for outfit choices, many more than i’m sharing, but this is just a small sampling…
flats for slipping on and off easily through airport security, leggings for maximum comfort, a long loose shirt, a lightweight sweater, and a scarf to ward off chilly airplane air. i also pack a pair of socks in my personal bag because as soon as i’m on the plane i kick off my shoes and get cozy.

i think i could’ve packed even a little less, but i love having options when i travel. and everything is thin enough that it all packs in tight and i have plenty of options!
