Having said that - hahaah - I am not going to be sharing bathrooms this time, and I am hoping I have learnt to check things before I leave (eherm...). After my Europe trip last year, I noted this about my jewellery:
"I took too much jewellery. I hardly wore any of it - only the rings and sometimes the bottle necklace. The evening jewellery and all the earrings didn't get a look in. Keep it simple, maybe just one necklace or pair of earrings to make an outfit more "evening-ish.""
So this time, I am wearing my day jewellery and then taking just one necklace for evening wear.
A necklace to brighten up the neckline of my t-shirts and tops.
My favourite ring that I wear all the time.
My other favourite ring that I wear often.
Stud earrings - basically the only earrings I wear - must do a packing party on my jewellery one of these days.
A pretty bracelet to make my plain clothes a bit more interesting.
My giant bling in case I get to go out at night.
Sunnies - de rigeur.
Best and most fave handbag of all time - simple, hands free, capacious yet small and has a zipper to close it.
A scarf for chillier days, to protect my neck from the sun and to spruce up my plain clothes.
A belt to keep my pants up!
A hat to keep the sun off my face when walking/cycling around.
Most of these, I will be wearing on the plane and so the rest will take up very minimal space in my luggage. Hoorah.
