Capsule Wardrobe Packing from the 33 for a long weekend

I'm out of town right now - actually, I've been out of town since Thursday afternoon; the magic of the internet means that I can schedule blog posts ahead of time!  I'm visiting a number of my relatives, which is the easiest packing; laundry is available, and borrowing clothes is always possible.  I'm carrying the huge suitcase because belovedest and I are sharing the bag, and his clothes and shoes take up a LOT of space...

  1. The transit collections are some of my favorites. Although my trips involve SUVs and tents rather than trains and hotels, I take the formulas and translate them into what I need to pack. It makes trip planning so much easier, and I'm always prepared and stylish (yes, even in the woods).

    Wishing you a lovely holiday.

  2. So you take two pairs of pants? I'm still trying to figure this out. I'm a jeans girl so I'll translate it to jeans.

  3. Looks like two pairs of very similar pants -- perhaps an oversight? If I were taking 2 pairs of pants, I'd take 2 different pairs -- dress pants and casual, jeans or black pants. Actually for this wardrobe, I'd take one casual-to-dressy pair (black) and maybe a black pencil skirt for dress-up occasions (opera, etc.). I wouldn't take the striped tee -- I'd wear the grey. But then I am a very light packer -- no more than 10 lbs. for EVERYTHING, shoes and 3-1-1 bag included.

  4. It took me a long time to realise I didn't need to take everything I owned on a trip. half of the items I never wore. I'm down to basics now and it's almost the same as yours.Thanks for this one as I'm off on a 2week trip, with just a carry on bag weghing 10kg allowance.I'm surprised at what I managed to get in.

  5. As a french woman living in Paris, I follow your blog with a great admiration for your keen eye for color(s) and your endless energy! Dominique Loreau's book caught my eye on this last post as I have read (and re-read) all of her books, too bad all of her works are not translated into english. Journeys and trips are indeed a good time to "faire le ménage en soi"! Thank you for the wonderful creation that is "The Vivienne Files"
