A capsule wardrobe while on holiday

Holidays are the only time when I have a capsule wardrobe – I have a tenacity to buy too many clothes and I can’t throw any away. Sometimes I have will have a clear out but the clothes just go in to a big bag and get put in to the loft. With holidays, I take my favourite clothes and somehow manage to wear not all of them in those two weeks. I suppose this is mainly because I take too many items with me. The best time for my holiday packing was when I went to Paris for a weekend with my mum a few years ago and I took a very small holdall with only enough clothes to wear for each day and night. It was a real triumph in packing for me.  Now, all I’ve got to do is mix and match my clothes for a 12 night holiday to midwest America. Try not to take too much and leave some space for shopping. More to come about my holiday soon.

    Where you coming in the Midwest? With the recession, retail has been hard hit. If you don’t pack a lot of clothes you’ll have a good excuse to go shopping and take advantage of the bargains out there. Just a thought.

      Hi mysticaljett – Cheers. I’m going to Minnesota. Hmmm, I always knew the shopping was good out there but knowing there are bargains to be had as well is interesting. Thanks, I will have to start culling my piles of clothes.
