Traveling Wardrobe- REPEAT & ROTATE

posted by on 2012.02.18, under Fashion Tutorials

So the past couple of months i’ve been traveling nonstop which has inspired me to create this tutorial! I always have to check myself before {I wreck myself}I start packing my entire wardrobe with me!  Recently I was in Asia for 2 weeks and I put myself to the challenge to bring less than 20 pieces with me without repeating 1 outfit during my time there. And so I did…. I brought 11 {clothing} pieces + some accessories & shoes and never repeated a single outfit! My fiance was seriously so proud of me because usually he’s the one who has to suffer and carry ALLLL my luggage for me :P  AND on top of that I had tons of extra space to go shopping and bring MORE clothes home!!!

Do you guys have any travels coming up? If so I put you to the test on bringing less than 20 items with you because if there’s more room in the suitcase that simply means MORE SHOPPING! Hope this tutorial inspires you to be creative with the limited pieces you have while traveling! HAPPY TRAVELING!!!



Thanks so much for the tips! This was very helpful in my recent trip to Asia as well. Where did you get your anorak jacket?? I have been looking for one exactly like that for a few months now!! Thank you!

Love all the looks!! Are most of the pieces you wore copies of the brand name item since you wrote “similar” in your description above? I was wondering where you had gotten the thick jacket in the first look from, I love the way it looks!

I watched the video and loved it! I already commented about the pink cable knit sweater a few weeks back, but I still love how you paired it with those fab cheetah print skinnies :)
