Some of you wanted to see exactly what I was packing on my long trip to Paris. For 3 weeks, I was trying to adhere to the 5-4-3-2-1 packing plan so I could fit everything in just one carry on bag, without having to wear all black. I got pretty close.
I was reading that Europeans still dress up compared to American styles, so I wanted to take more dresses. I started with these 4, plus one I’ll show you in a bit.
4 shirts, mostly sleeveless, only one of which is a black t-shirt.
3 bottoms (one maxi skirt, one short skirt, and one pair of cropped pants).
2 light sweaters.
1 swimsuit with a cover-up that can double as a dress all on it’s own (That makes 5 dresses).
1 nightie and robe.
3 pair of shoes that are all very comfortable, light and good for walking.
My travel outfit is the maxi skirt, blue t-shirt, and the larger Dansko sandals on the left. All super comfy.
Sure, I could economize just a teensy bit more, but when it all fits in one carry-on and still leaves a little room for shopping, why?

What do you think. Could you pack like this for a long trip?
