(outfits 5-8) one suitcase: paris vacation capsule wardrobe


Post 3/7 - 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 next 4 outfits for the Paris Vacation made from the clothing pieces listed here:

There are a few things that I always pack in my suitcase that I don't consider counting in my "One Suitcase" packing list item count. Underwear. Socks. And I always bring a white & black cami/tank to layer under shirts. (The black tank is shown in outfit #5.) Currently, I'm working on a 'miscellaneous' packing checklist (much like the one I did for the carry-on tote) that will list out the stuff I bring beyond the main outfit clothes, shoes & accessories.

                                      1. I'm surprised by how much I like outfit 5. I saw the jacket and thought "no way" but it looks great- good eye! I think you should keep that baby on heavy rotation for a while :)

                                      2. You are a trooper to come back and try on all of these outfits for your photos! What a great, useful feature, though!
