So we've finally begun to plan our much longed-for trip to New York next spring & me being the total list-lover that I am, I'm already planning how best to pack & travel light to free up room in my case to bring back lots of goodies! (Yes, I already have a shopping list on the go too!!)
I always over-pack when I go away, even when I think I'm being really good so this time, I'm determined to get it right. Day time will be spent sight-seeing so comfy, light-weight clothes that can be layered are a must, as are flat, comfy shoes & a cross-body bag - I'll need my hands free for lots of photo taking!
I love maxi skirts as they can worn in the day with a vest top, denim jacket, scarf & Converse or in the evening with a smarter top, blazer & heels so are a real must for me. My kimono is ridiculously light-weight but looks great over a vest top with a statement necklace, a pair of skinny jeans, heels & a red lip.
I'm going to try & stick to a navy or black & white capsule with a couple of brights added in via scarves, jewellery & lipstick - naturally!! All I'll need are MAC Plumful & Russian Red & that's my lips sorted too!
Everything else on here is pretty self-explanatory - super-light hand luggage, iPad (note-taking, music, Kindle, films, camera etc in one!!) I spotted the yellow top in M&S yesterday & it's soooo beautiful. I immediately thought of wearing it with a pair of skinnies, heels & my striped blazer - easy smart/casual outfit for one evening. I love these heels from Next as they're not ridiculously high so if we do walk to a restaurant in the evening, I won't be too crippled! Actually, there's an awful lot in Next I'll be ordering soon, the S/S collection is gorgeous.........!
So that's my plan - at the minute! Anybody else have any 'packing light' tips? I'm getting back to my notebook now........lists to be made people!!
