Let’s say you are going away for 4 days, here is a little tick list of what you will need:
❤ pyjamas (number one on the list, I love pyjamas)
❤ one pair of trousers, and by trousers, I mean real trousers, not jeans.
❤ one pretty dress for this special night out
❤ 4 tops (make it two tee-shirts, a pretty blouse and an evening top)
❤ your undies, unless you want to go commando for 4 days in the name of light travel.
❤ a beauty bag with your everyday make up + a red lipstick, shampoo, conditioner, face wash, moisturizer, toothpaste etc all go in small travel containers.
❤ a pair of cute but comfortable shoes for the daytime
❤ a pair of incredibly impractical shoes for the evening.
❤ a cardigan
❤ a jacket (blazer or denim jacket)
❤ a little bag full of necklaces, brooches and hair accessories.
❤ a mini umbrella
The idea here is to have one core piece for the daytime (the trousers/skirt/shorts if you prefer) that goes with all your tops, shoes and jacket. For example, I would bring my beige high-waisted trousers as they go with most of my tops. Add a cute pair of white jazz shoes, a denim jacket and the right accessories, you have yourself a comfy but not sloppy day look.
In the evening, you will have your dress and shoes, no need to agonize about what to wear!
Make sure you also plan a travelling outfit that will make you feel très glamourous while still being practical. You don’t want to look a mess when you get out of that plane… especially as you can’t really take your make up bag with you in the cabin.
Next week, I will write about what to pack for a week (or two) at the beach…
