Today is the day! After weeks of preparation I am (finally) flying to Florence. My bags are packed, my overflow has been shipped, and I have 9+ hours of trashy TV download on my laptop (#ready).
Although packing was stressful, and I am dreading getting everything up to my apartment, I have really enjoyed the challenge of packing for 7 months abroad. The benefit of taking the time to photograph each item of clothing (or grab images from the web) is that I can easily see my wardrobes as a whole and plan out my outfits (I mean who doesn’t love planning outfits?).
I got a little carried away last week. I wanted to sit down and make sure everything in my winter capsule was versatile and that I could use every piece (minus some special occasion items/coats) in at least three different looks. I started playing around and before I knew it, I had created 60 unique outfits! I definitely could have created more, but I had to stop myself since I did have more important things I needed to be doing. But this exercise ensured me that the pieces I had selected would be versatile and that I wasn’t wasting space on useless items.
Incase you don’t recall, this is my winter capsule and I made all of the outfits below from just these items:
And here are all of the fabulous outfits I created:
