(outfits 11-15) one suitcase: european vacation capsule wardrobe

Post 4/10 - The purpose of the "One Suitcase" feature is to try to show you how you can pare down your packing list when you travel without sacrificing the number or variety of outfits you have for the range of activities your trip may entail. I have learned through trial and error (and the pain of lugging wayyy too big a suitcase) that by packing a few favorite & versatile pieces of clothing I can mix and match the items into a surprising number of outfit options. You just have to do a little planning up front. Hopefully the posts this week will show you my method and help you find the potential of the clothes you already have in your closet!

In case you missed - it the previous posts in the series can be found here:
Here are the first 5 outfits for the Europe Vacation made from the clothing pieces listed here:

Because it is a such an amazing place V & her hubby will spend a few more days in Paris. Agenda includes more museum visits, delicious dining, shopping Saint-Honoré and Champs-Élysées, as well as touring churches & historical sites.

                                                    1. All these outfits look very stylish and comfortable, specially for a pregnant woman travelling abroad for three weeks. Great job!

                                                    2. I like the wardrobe, but I hate those black shoes! for me, I'd swap with comfy ballet flats or black lace up sneakers. :)

                                                      1. Thanks! These posts are just intended to be inspiration - definitely swap out whatever you need to to fit your preferences & style! :)

                                                    3. I agree the black Toms seem too "hard" for the outfits. Maybe it's the color. I would suggest a softer color in Toms or some nice, comfortable Mary Jane's. Some styles to look at are Earthies, Jambu, Anhu or Keen. I would try Amazon for a greater variety and cheaper prices.
