Right now, I’m beginning to pack for my trip. I have to fit 3 months of clothes into one (okay, maybe two) suitcases. It is quite difficult to narrow my entire closet down to what I want to wear for the next three months… I don’t even know what I want to wear tomorrow! I’ve gone through my work clothes and sweaters and have come up with a whole box full of clothes. Uggggh. Why is this so hard?
Since I’ll be at my internship 5 days a week, I’ll need a lot of pieces that can work as professional/dress clothes. My favorite pieces in my tub o’clothes right now are some black cigarette pants, like these from Old Navy and these pants from TJ Maxx. I also have just about twelve (dozen…) cardigans in neutrals and jewel tones, like this pretty emerald green sweater from NY & Co.
My casual wardrobe will probably just be skinny jeans, sweaters and a few cute tees. I only have one dress packed for now, but I rarely wear them here, so I might not add any more. I’m looking for one or two good knit dresses that can double duty as business and casual. I’m also on the hunt for a good white dress shirt, but for me those are hard to come across without extensive (and also expensive) tailoring. (I’m 5’0″ and 100 pounds. I can still wear kids clothes. It’s not as fun as it sounds.)
I’m also planning of taking 3-4 pairs of boots, 3 pairs of flats, a pair of oxfords, and my black Vans. (I’m a shoe-lover, I admit it.)
I’ll post the finalized packing list once I figure out exactly what I’m taking!
