I recently did a back-to-back trip, visiting Savannah for a school-visit for my daughter, and heading straight from there to Singapore for work. I was able to pack for both trips in a backpack style carry-on and had many more outfit options than needed. It definitely helps that there was warm weather in both locations!
Here’s what I packed:
- White linen tank
- Black silk tank
- Black skinnies
- Back silk-linen pants
- Linen jumpsuit
- Black sheath dress
- Oatmeal cardigan
- Silver Birkenstocks
- Black Nisolo loafers
- Black pointed black mules
Truth be told, out of the 15+ outfits I could make with these pieces, I really only wore a handful: the black linen jumpsuit was my travel outfit — so comfortable, completely non-binding, looks put together for business class and airport lounges. I actually wore the jumpsuit three days in a row at the beginning of the trip — traveling to Savannah, the school tour, and traveling to Singapore. I varied it by tying the waist at the back for the school tour.
At work in Singapore, I wore the white tank and silk-linen pants twice, the sheath dress twice, and the black tank with black skinnies once. I used the scarf for variety a few days and the cardigan for warmth when needed.
Then I wore the linen jumpsuit for the flight back home.
Everything was so easy to wear together, my bag was nice and light, and I always felt put together and appropriate.
I think I’ve really gotten the hang of this wardrobe thing!
Here are the outfits I wore and quite a few more that I didn’t:
