Jenn, it’s really l2 and 3/4 days and 2 nights (the first night we are arriving late). I definitely DO NOT intend to bring all of this! But I am veeeerry indecisive.
Also, I treat packing like a logic puzzle to try to optimize my options in limited space, which I guess is why I wanted help.
The pullover and leather jacket are for travel exclusively. That warmth level is non-negotiable for me. It won’t be warm when I leave and return home and I freeze on planes. The sweater is what I’m wearing to worn the day I leave; I could change but for various reasons regarding logistics I may not have time to before I leave.
One graphic tee is for sleeping in; threw it in because I had the find.
Otherwise, I agree about editing bottoms, tops and toppers, but I’m just stumped about which ones to drop.
For toppers, what’s better? Leaving aside the leather jacket, is it better to have the denim jacket and cardigan, or the denim jacket and kimono? Seems like the raincoat is probably a good idea because it packs up very light and small. On the other hand, I hate wearing it when it’s not raining (stifles me), so it can’t replace anything and maybe I should just suck it up with an umbrella?
If I’m taking one jean, I’ll leave out the white ones in case they get dirty. Are casual or dressy ones better for the one pair I bring? Dressy seems better but they’re not as comfortable for wearing on the plane (which i’d almost certainly have to do).
As for shirts, aside from Led Zep, I don’t know. I have the most trouble narrowing that category down.
I can choose between the joggers easily (the green ones). People keen warning me about the humidity, which is why I included linen ones, but it’s not supposed to be bad when I’m there.
I think I don’t need a fourth pair of shoes given the short time and the fact that I’ll wear the hiking boots almost exclusively for day. I did so for a longer trip a few months ago and it worked out great; we walk A LOT when we travel, and they caused the least pain of anything I’ve ever tried. The other two are really evening options. I need to go with my most tried and true shoes since my back hurts right now. None of the flats I own will work after a long day of waking-not enough support. I take only three pairs for much longer trips anyway. So I’m very comfortable leaving the shoe assortment as is.
