How I packed for India

IM PACKED!!! – 1 more sleep – India here I come!! Ok, so I’m not known for travelling light… I’m a girl who still needs variety & I don’t like to feel like I’m wearing the same thing over and over. I call myself a mood dresser, sometimes I feel like wearing certain things & other times I don’t! Equally I hate handing money over for excess baggage and love avoiding those loooong bag collecting queues!! So how do I get variety without tipping the suitcase scales?? 1. I colour code my clothes – I look at everything and choose items based on the fact they will work with lots of other items. No orphans please!! 2. I like to pack mostly neutrals, then add pops of colour. This gives me lots of variety & options 3. Scarves offer me the ultimate in versatility because it adds very little to my load, yet adds dramatically to my basic travel wardrobe. They liven up my neutral travel wardrobe by providing a pop of colour, pattern, texture & of course personality. 4. Rolling, this is the killer technique when it comes to compact travelling and has revolutionised my packing. Roll every item that can be rolled as this will negate creasing. So what exactly have I packed for 10 days? Heres my list & please refer to my picture for colour inspo 3 pairs of pants (neutrals & denim) 4 tops (2 singlets / 2 t-shirts) 2 pairs of shorts (1 denim / 1 colourful) 2 cardigans for cool nights (1 light 3/4 sleeve & 1 dark longer sleeve) 2 dresses 3 scarfs 3 pairs of shoes (1 x nude heel / 1 x jelly shoe / 1 x comfy funky flat) 2 necklaces (1 short / 1 long) Then of course all my essentials that aren’t in the pic like bikinis, underwear socks ext….) AND OFF I GO – X CB

  • • HOW TO LAYER UP • Its deep in to that trans-seasonal time of year when we have no clue what to expect one hour from the next and If you live in Melbourne you MUST know how to nail the art of layering to combat our 4 seasons in one day.... Layering is simply the art mastering the right combinations and I promise it isn't actually as hard as you think. Just follow these simple rules to make life that wee bit easier. Pic via @magic_fox • Your base pieces need to look great as a stand alone piece
• Make most layers light in weight
• Layer from thin to thick
• Keep thick knits, coats or jackets as the very outer layer
• Add a pattern or texture for interest
• Don’t forget your head, neck, feet & hands. Accessories are a great way to keep warm and add that extra element of style

  • • This is literally my 3rd pair of the same white sneakers (plus I have a brand spanking new 4th pair awaiting in the wardrobe) Would definitely be the most worn item in my wardrobe, but I like them looking fresh & white, hence the multiple pairs 😂 Does anyone else buy multiples of their favorite staple items? • #sneakers 👟 @witcheryfashion @cable_bay_vineyards #wearwhatmakesyoufeelgood #casualstyle #personalstylist #personalshopper #melbournestylist #newzealand
