For footwear, I chose my very versatile and extremely comfortable suede slouchy boots....After climbing 30 flights of stairs up a castle and experiencing no pain in my feet, I knew that I've made the right choice. In order to survive many hours of travel between cities and walking around sightseeing, I chose to pack many comfortable jersey pieces. In order to complete the look, I focused on accessorizing - I've embraced the true fall look and focused on packing different types of tights that ranged from textured to paisley-printed to houndstooth. Last but not the least, I packed Queen N's signature pieces: pearl strands and headbands. With my suitcase packed (with room to spare!), I was ready to roam the streets of Vienna while attempting to blend into the crowd.
Queen N's Tips On Travelling Light in Style:
- Strategically plan your outfits in advanced to avoid over packing. Pack no more than one outfit per day except for days when you must have separate eveningwear.
- Wear your bulkiest shoe & outfit while travelling in order to save room in your suitcase. This means knee high boots, outerwear, and chunky knit sweaters.
-Keep your outfits unique by focusing on lighter accessories such as patterned legwear, scarves, hats and jewelry. You'd be surprised at how different the same dress can look if worn with a beret and patterned tights vs a scarf and a waist cinching belt!
- Pack multi functional pieces such as a blazer that can be layered over different tops or a tunic that can be worn over different legwear.
-Keep shoes at bare minimum- choose a comfortable versatile style to walk miles in and pack a pair of dressy pumps because you'll never know when Prince Charming will invite you to a ball!
Wise words Queen N! I'm so happy to hear from you. XOXO
