If you’re friends with me in real life or on Facebook you know that planning my wardrobe for Europe really stressed me out. Last year when we were in Ireland I felt like a bum as I only packed comfortable traveling clothes and looked like a lame American tourist. Everyone in Dublin was so well dressed (including the men, I loved it) and I felt so embarrassed for myself. I am determined to not let that happen this year. So after much deliberation (and shopping) I’m all set and this is what I packed.
It’s England in the summer so of course I’m taking my Hunter rain boots. (Yes I have the kids size. They’re $65 cheaper!) I also packed my running shoes so I can get a run in, in the English country side and one through London.
I’m also bringing my Jack Rogers, black sandals, sneakers and a pair of nude flats. And they all fight nicely in this bag
Next up are 3 pairs of shorts (Gap and Target) , 2 pairs of pants (Gap and Lilly Pulitzer) and 3 dresses (J. Crew, Lilly Pulitzer and Cache)
Admittedly I am a little apprehensive about bringing so many shorts but it’s supposed to be mostly sunny and in the 70’s so fingers crossed I won’t be freezing the whole time. Now time for tops. I’m bringing 2 tank tops (Target) , 2 comfy tees (J. Crew), and 3 dressier shirts (Lilly Pulitzer) and 1 blazer (H&M) and 1 cardigan (Old Navy).
And all of this fits every so nicely into my Eagle Creek packing folders.
Obviously I’m bringing pajamas and the basics and a work out outfit. Yes just one we have a washer and dryer in our flat in London.
I think I’m all set. Really hope I’ve made better wardrobe decisions this year.
Keep it real,
