The Art of Packing
In just over a week I will be traveling to Spain to embark on an amazing cruise around the western Mediterranean. I knew on this 12 day cruise we have to dress up for dinner and we will have 3 formal nights. The rising cost of excess baggage means that I will need to be very smart with my packing to avoid these fees. Being the woman that I am, I did a lot of research on packing in all the cruising forums. I found a lot of information but none of it seemed to apply to me.
Most of the information was based on a capsule wardrobe of reversible maxi dresses, fringed shawls and two pairs of shoes, one for day and one for evening. I am not the type of woman who wears that type of clothing but I do understand that you need have double duty clothes.
So for this trip I decided to make a plan. I decided to stick to a simple colour palette of black white and grey and because I like variety in my fashion I added two popular trends, animal print and orange.
Most of the clothing works double duty
I also added a fun flirty skirt that works in the colour combo but not necessarily in those colours. It’s double duty and can work for both sightseeing or a fancy lunch. It’s all in the accessories. And since I love shoes, it’s easy to dress up or dress down an outfit.
Then I roll everything and pack them tightly to reduce the risk of wrinkling and then you are done.
Do you have a better packing method? I would love to hear it, leave your ideas in the comments.
