Things I Wonder: Mission Impossible

In 36 days I am departing for a half month trip to Europe. We will be going to Europe with a similar crew that we went to Beijing with last year. Except this time we will be traveling around in a car, which means luggage needs to be SMALL. In China I went OIC style (Only in China), I rocked shorts and tank tops, but for some reason when we go to Europe I want to feel TheSartorialist ready. I hoping I can pull together a plan to fit a fashionable and comfortable set (with room for purchases) into my 26" by 13.5" suitcase.
My closet for 16 days...Good thing I took tips from Kendi and her 30 day challenge!And a sad reminder of my OIC looks from last year... they get progressively worse.
Birthday in Beijing.
Riding the Rickshaw, just like my Dad.
Crazy Rainstorms in June.
My Great Wall Look.
No Paint, No Gains.
Fully Scummed to Beijing fashion.
Yay for OIC, adventures and silly outfits.

  2. I bet you will pull some great pieces together!! You still will look great in a tank and shorts. At least they are comfy!! :O) Your trip sounds amazing!!

  3. You still look great! It's hard to look fashionable with a very little amount of wardrobe and have it be feasible for all the traveling/hiking/adventures. Have a great trip!

  4. What a fun challenge this will be!
    Not that you need style advice from me, but I swear by scarves! They can transform any outfit instantly.

  5. Wow! What a trip that must have been! Great photos!

    I can't believe you can only pack so little... eep! ... well, I CAN believe it, but, you know...
