A six day trip in Melbourne, where the forecast is for a maximum of 11 degrees (positively balmy) requires some stealth packing. This is not one of those ‘I’m just taking carry on’ packing related posts.
I probably packed more than I needed, but I wasn’t taking any chances with the weather as often I pack too little and are not prepared for the cold! Plus I foresee layering, layering, layering… which means you wear the fashion equivalent of two outfits.
So here’s the packing haul…
And the details:
2 boots, 1 pair of flats (I may regret taking 2 boots, but it is the 30 days of accessories challenge!)
black jeans, blue jeans, 3 pairs of leggings
2 scarves, 1 beanie, 1 pair of gloves
3 singlets, 1 short sleeved blouse (horse print!), 1 purple fancy top
3 jumpers (maroon, purple, fuchsia)
1 black ribbed and 1 blue knitted cardigan
I black padded jacket, 1 black and fuchsia patterned coat
3 patterned dresses (with hues of blues, maroons, purples)
2 black long sleeved tops, one with a white star print
That seems like a lot for six days. But I never know whether I’ll need one outfit a day that carries from day to night, or a separate outfit for night time.That dude Murphy will always throw the opposite at you too.
I wanted to have room in my bag for shopping!
Hmmm… May need to borrow some of The Artist’s bag space for purchases…
