I am off to Ireland today and I can’t wait. Ireland is home for me even though I’ve lived overseas for 20+ years.
To me, its still home after all these years. I always love seeing the first sight of the coast and the green fields. It stirs a deep sense of belonging. I see the same in my two boys even though they weren’t born in Ireland; somehow it has become home for them too.
Anyways, back to the packing. What am I going to bring with me?
When I think about what to pack, I list down what I will be doing and of course take the weather into consideration. Ireland is pretty predictable and rain is almost guaranteed so I will need to pack a rain coat.
So what will I be doing….. Lots of walking outside, some shopping, a double christening and hanging out with my parents. Not too exciting but exactly where I want to be for a few days.
Packing is really unbelievably easy when you have clothes that are the right colours for you, the right shape for you, are right for your style personality and work for the lifestyle you have now.
So here is what I will pack:
Christening: Floral navy wrap dress, Nude Heels and my feather earrings which go with the dress.
Day to day at home: 2 pairs of jeans, 4 light layering tops, denim shirt, 2 pullovers
Walking: Raincoat, runners.
I will wear one of the pairs of jeans to travel, one of the tops and my leather jacket as well as a pair of spanking brand new trainers that are still shiny white and dying for an outing.
I will also bring lots of accessories as they take so little space and really make the most of my travel wardrobe. 2 scarves in complimentary colours and several pairs of dangly earrings.
Did I forget anything? What else would you bring beside the pjs and underwear?
