A couple weeks ago, I shared about my small fall and winter wardrobe and how versatile a small wardrobe can be if you have coordinating items.

While packing for a recent 5 day trip, I thought it would be fun to use the clothes I shared about in the 8 clothing items, 13 outfits post. I pulled out those 8 items and added in a shirt, an extra pair of jeans and a necklace, bringing my total pieces to 11.

I wore 3 of the pieces on day one as I traveled and packed the others in a small bag along with underclothes, pajamas and toiletries.

The 11 pieces:

Tops- Striped Thermal Tee, Black Tee, Paisley Dress, Grey Sweater

Bottoms- Teal Skinnies, Skinny Jeans, Jeans, Black Tights

Accessories/Shoes- Black Boots {not pictured}, Teal Scarf, Red Necklace



Day 1: Striped Thermal Tee, Teal Skinnies & Boots

Day 2: Black Tee, Jeans, Red Necklace & Boots

Day 3: Black Tee, Skinny Jeans, Teal Scarf & Boots

Day 4: Paisley Dress, Black Tights, Teal Scarf & Boots

Day 5: Grey Sweater, Skinny Jeans & Boots

I must admit, I was a bit nervous packing so little but at the same time excited that I could go away for a few days with so few personal items. It did help that I was going to visit family and had easy access to a washer and dryer, making it easier to wear the same things.

Packing light made packing and getting dressed each day simple. I’ll be packing light from here on out! {Now, I just have to start packing light for the boys…}

Do you pack light or do you tend to overpack?
