What I wore in Europe/how to pack for mixed weather

I think of my style as being understated. I am never comfortable with being the centre of attention and the same reflects in my style. Mostly comfortable dressing with attention to looking presentable is what one would find me in, even on the days that need me to gussy up! But I like to dress up in my own way nonetheless ๐Ÿ™‚

When Europe was planned and I started packing, we were not sure if the temperature in numbers meant it would be hot or cold! So, Iย packed whatever I wanted to wear including dresses and just carried a few pairs of stockings in different colors and prints. This came in really handy and is a great space saver in the luggage. For extra cold days, I just used the jacket I took for the flight and a shawl that doubled up as a blanket on trains. Another trick I always use on my holidays is to carry tops that can be used as jackets.

A glimpse into my holiday dressing journal and ways to fit your clothes into an easy-on-the-back luggage.

Same stockings, different dress. And the denim jacket that I used as a top with a full sleeve tee for the evening.

The loveliest hat ever! That I left on the train from Venice to Vienna. I hope this is now adorned by a well deserving lady. This picture was taken at Lido beach, Venice
