I’m a lunatic. That should come as no surprise to any of you. So what I’m about to tell you really shouldn’t come as a shock. I expect most of you to shrug & say think “Devon’s being a crazy bitch per usual“. At least that’s what Brandon did when I told him about this.
About three months ago, I started a packing spreadsheet on Google Documents for our vacation to Dublin, Paris & London.
Did I mention I love spreadsheets?
I Googled like a mad woman to make sure I had the *perfect* outfits lined up. Most of the “How to Pack for Europe” articles & posts were bland & boring. I needed specific ideas. Really, Rick Steves? Your suggestion of 1-2 vests is NOT helpful.
J from J’s Everyday Fashion did a guest post on Peanut Butter Fingers that was ridiculously helpful. Her specific outfits & multiple uses helped me see the full potential of every article of clothing I had in mind. Once I found that post, I grabbed both my spreadsheets & I wrote all over them both to make sure I had outfits for every day & every occasion.
Sitting down to plan 11 daily outfits plus 3 evening outfits make me realize that a few items I thought would be staples were completely unnecessary. It also brought to mind several items I’d never even thought to pack, but now I’ll be glad I did.
Oh, & guess what? I leave in 25 days!
