Full title: Capsule Wardrobe Essentials: How to Pack Light with a 10 Piece Packing List
Enter Capsule Wardrobe Essentials. I have been following the Travel Fashion Girl blog for a while and this book was mentioned more than a few times so I bit the bullet and downloaded it to my Kindle app.
Am I ever glad I did. While I think Pinterest more than supplies the details for packing all of the stuff into a carry on - it isn't helping me plan wardrobes and this book did precisely that. It talks about how to plan your clothing around a colour story so all of the pieces work together and gives valuable tips on packing for warm and cold climates. It also discusses the pitfalls of travel clothing and how to make sure that your packed wardrobe is ready for anything.
It is a quick read and a valuable one - particularly since I have three girls to prepare for this trip and two of them are identical twins who need to have a quick identifier for the family who will be there (many have never met them or spent time with them). I think , thanks to this book, I am now armed with the tools to make it happen.
Now if only I could find decent rolling backpacks for the girls....
