I’m assuming, for purposes of our imaginary trip, that there will be abundant sightseeing, but that there will also be many romantic nights. Not necessarily black-tie dressy, but things for which you still want to look lovely, and feel alluring.
- black cardigan, replaced by beige cardigan;
- lace top, replaced by black floral top;
- lace top, replaced by botanical print top;
- lace top, replaced by beige sparkle top;
- lace top, replaced by ruffled beige top;
- lace top, replaced by black sleeveless top;
- beige trousers, replaced by beige shorts;
- beige trousers, replaced by black skirt; (just sort of roll and stuff in the bag)
- beige trousers, replaced by beige lace skirt; (so easy to pack!)
- beige trousers; replaced by black trousers.
This all seems to live together quite nicely, doesn’t it?
And, as with any “Whatever’s Clean” wardrobe, you have literally dozens of choices, suitable for a casual dinner, a rainy day in a museum, a sunny day outdoors, or a very romantic evening meal and walk around town.
If for some reason you strongly felt that you needed more clothes, you could add a skirt or trousers (maybe in a beige and black pattern, although this would break the sacred “Whatever’s Clean”…), and two more tops. I can’t personally imagine packing more than 16 pieces for almost anything…
But what do you think?
