Game plan: What to Wear

March 23, 2010 by Jo

Packing is such an ordeal now that I am trying to match my clothes and look presentable on a regular basis. I am sure at some point it will get easier, but as of right now, I still have to try on clothes, put together outfits, and see what I can combine with what. Guh….more work than necessary, and I am slow because I get easily side tracked (like now….I am blogging instead of packing).

I am heading to Europe tomorrow and I’ll be visiting Cologne, Germany; Barcelona, Spain; Dublin, Ireland; and Gothenborg, Sweden. Luckily I’ve previously taught in all of these cities at all of these camps so I have general idea of what to expect. It’s going to be a good bit colder than it’s been the past few weeks and there are beaucoup performances I have to prepare for which translates to “beaucoup de luggage.” I decided I wanted to write out what I was bringing in hopes that it would detour me from over packing (I’ll keep you posted on that). So here’s what I think I am bringing, what days I think I will wear it, performance info, and weather:

Monday
jeans + blue silk shirt (+ long sleeve shirt) + belt
knee socks + boots

Tuesday
high waisted jeans + BCBG shirt (+ long sleeve shirt)

    I always make a packing list! I’m bound to forget something if I don’t–and I generally do it by what I’m going to wear, on which day, so I always know what I’ll be wearing Friday, Saturday, etc. Of course, I’m a little bit flexible on tops and whatnot sometimes, but mostly I wear exactly what I planned out! (Down to the hair accessories)

    Breanna, you’re awesome.

    Well, I’m already off to a different start. Yesterday I stayed in my travel clothes and I’ve spent almost 12 hours in my rehearsal clothes. Boo. At least tonight I’ll get to dress up….I am still planning on the red dress. Pictures to come!!

    Woah.. I came across this post while looking through the “fashion” tag, and I have to say – NO, you are not the only one who does this!! Hahah, I am so happy to see I’m not the only one who plans my outfits and writes them down for each and every day and event in order to make a packing list :D
