I am a notoriously awful packer. If I’m going on a ski vacation I will pack shorts, tank tops, flip flops, bikinis…because one never knows what will arise while on vacay. And while it means I’m prepared for anything (my Vegas dress tucked into a pocket while backpacking down the Grand Canyon) it also means that my suitcases weigh a thousand pounds, the zippers on my bags are bursting at the seams, and I can never find socks when I need them (but my ballgown is always accessible).
Before going on my honeymoon I was determined to turn this ship around. I was going to enter my marriage and Europe a new woman. An organized, packing machine. And I actually think I did it! I laid out a bunch of potential clothing/accessories/shoes on my bed and started creating outfits. I edited out anything that couldn’t be used in three different scenarios. Once I had my items picked out I photographed all the outfits so that when I woke up in the morning in Greece I could scroll through the photos and pick my look for the day. I’m not kidding, this up front effort saved me loads of time and pounds of baggage!
This is the contents of my suitcase and I stretched this to be way more outfits than pictured!
Included in the photos are: 2 rompers, 5 shirts, 2 sweaters, 1 pair of shorts, 1 pair of jeans, 1 skirt, 1 dress, 1 jacket, 4 pairs of shoes and two necklaces. This made up the 11 pictured outfits, but in reality more like 15 combinations.
