I spend an embarrassing amount of time making packing lists. Pinterest has great lists, but there’s always pieces in them that I don’t agree with or don’t like. Therefore I decided to make my own lists this winter.
This season seems to be trending towards neutral and classic clothing, which makes it super easy to pack for vacation without an 800 lb. bag. (I may be exaggerating, but you get my point)
I’ve organized two different lists. There’s the minimalist list, which is a bit extreme yet perfectly feasible for use, and the mid-range packing list, which is still minimalist, yet a bit easier to live off of.
Each list is for a seven-day vacation. If you’re staying somewhere for more than seven days, then you can probably wash your clothing and wear them again.
Victoria s Secret PINK victoria secret pink t shirt / Shirts top / Uniqlo pink top / H M black tie belt, $47 / Closet pastel skater skirt, $39 / H&m skinny jeans, $24 / Jonathan aston tight, $16 / Forever 21 low heel boots
My goal was to create one of those you can fit a week in a purse lists.
Each piece goes with each other and totals to exactly seven outfits, including four that are acceptable to wear to church on Christmas.
H M jumper top, $24 / H M top, $20 / H M blouse, $31 / Flannel top / H M wide neck sweater, $20 / H M blue coat, $78 / H M black skater skirt, $13 / H&M short pants, $47 / H&M skinny jeans, $47 / Top Guy black ankle booties / Aerie loop scarf
Usually I end up packing a little more than what is required for a minimalist. It’s important to accept that clothing can be worn multiple times or washed during vacation if you’re going to chose this list.
I chose a color scheme around the grey and floral shirt. When creating a packing list, it’s best to stick to one color scheme to insure that everything will match.
I am likely going to pack similar to this list. I want to stick to a red, black and grey color scheme this year because I usually stick to more pastel-like girls colors and am feeling more bold.
To even out the darkness of the entire set, I added a bold blue-green coat. Two pairs of pants are usually enough to not be gross for a week and a skirt is useful for any dressy situation or if something happened to one of your pants. A added a grey scarf for person effect and comfort.
There are fifteen available outfits, including five outfits you could create with the skirt that would be appropriate for church.
