Checklist for mini travel wardrobe

Travel for a long weekend with only 6 garments in the travel bag

Is it possible? 

Yes, it's possible, if you pack smart. Here is a suggested packing list: 

1 CARDIGAN or other light jacket

2 BOTTOMS - trousers and skirt (if you don’t like wearing skirts, make sure one of the trousers are fancy enough to go to the restaurant of your choicei)


And in addition, 4 other accessories:

SCARVES (a couple of scarves are easy to pack and can transform any outfit)

SHOES (in addition to the ones you travel in)

SMALL HANDBAG for going out to restaurants, unless you prefer to use just the one handbag. Add another accessory if you drop the handbag.

(and then of course underwear, socks, pantyhose, toiletries

This is what you wear in transit:
