Ger's bag

I thought it might be interesting to take a peek at what I brought.  I packed too much, but overall am fairly happy with how I did.  Pack light, much lighter than you think you should!  


Tops:
overall: Doing it again, I would bring 5 plain tanks, 3 nicer tanks, 4 nicer t-shirts, 1 long sleeve

white tank: bring
white, brown, black lace camis: leave white at home
purple & grey camis: bring
pink tank top with sparkles: wore a ton
brown and blue patterned tank: bring
green tank: leave at home, gets too wrinkly
purple patterened tank: bring, wore a lot
black tank: leave at home

purple shirt: leave at home, but good for going on planes with leggings as it was long
blue shirt: bring
green shirt: bring
grey with flowers: leave at home, too delicate
black v-neck nice shirt: bring
white with lace bib: bring, love it
black t-shirt: leave at home
striped: leave at home
green long sleeve: bring
white dress shirt: never worn, leave at home


Shoes:
Overall: bring runners, flip flops and flats next time

Runners - bring
Sandals - leave at home, handy but not comfy enough for much walking
Rubber flip flops - bring, good for walking and showering
Gold flats - bring, although I wore them right out, they did not come home
Grey flats - leave at home, were sweaty and did not really need two sets of flats


Bottoms:
overall: bring two pairs of shorts (one that is good for hiking), one pair of jeans, two skirts, dress pants, leggings

white plaid shorts: keep, but get something a little longer and better for hiking
jean shorts: keep, love those babies, wore them tons
jean skirt: leave at home
jeans (two): only bring one pair, they are heavy
sweats: leave at home, just wear leggings (not pictured)
white capris: leave at home, but bring different capris
knee length grey plaid shorts: leave at home
white skirt: keep
black skirt: keep!
black dress pants (not pictured): keep if you are planning to work in an office type place
(Andrew brought khakis and they did him well)


Dresses:
Overall: bring three dresses, one nicer, two casual (one of which can be used as a swim coverup)

Blue flowered: could have left at home, hard to wash, but I love it so
Orange & grey dots: a workhorse, probably my most worn item.  Good for warm days, add leggings and a sweater and it's good for chilly ones and planes too (basically like wearing pajamas)
Black: leave at home
Brown flowered: toss up, good as it looks nice and easy to clean
Reddish dress: good for going to the beach but not used a ton
Blue swim cover: leave at home, use something that can also be a dress instead


Other stuff:
Red raincoat: bring for sure
Black sweater: the one I could have left, but didn't really regret bringing either
Blueish cardigan: bring, matched (kindof anyways) both black and brown
Yellow hoodie: bring, love that thing but it needs to be retired soon
Blue cardigan: nice pop of colour but not really needed
Hat: bring, cute and sun cover
Scarf: toss up, used some, mostly in Beijing and on flights, but not much other than that


Jewellery:
leave it all at home, even though it's pretty!

Glad you liked, I know I thought it was interesting, but wasn't sure if anyone else would.
