SECRET PACKING TIP #2
You are going to wear the same thing more than once.
Get over it.
I packed zero pairs of shoes.
Yes, ladies, you read that right. The shoes I wore on the plane were the shoes I walked the cobblestone streets of Europe in and went to dinner in and went to Easter Mass in.
Comfortable and versatile shoes.
One coat. One sweatshirt. Two pairs of jeans. One pair of khakis. A bunch of shirts, some long sleeve, some short sleeve.
It was plenty of clothes.
Really. It was.
Of course, it does take a bit of planning. You need to check the weather forecast and map out your itinerary with what you plan to wear in advance.
Just taking a bunch of stuff and hoping to give yourself clothing options when you get there isn’t going to work if you are trying to pack efficiently. Make those decisions BEFORE you pack.
