Laurie's All Black Travel Capsule

When I was planning for my most recent European shopping trip, in addition to my usual challenge of packing only a carry-on bag, I also had the challenge of traveling with the extremely stylish Sepi.  So my daytime and my evening games both had to be sharp. 

As I was packing in my head, as I always do, I decided that all black was going to give me the most flexibility and the best chance at a hard working wardrobe by day, and chic ensembles by night.  I packed a combination of my best things and some of my sale scores, all my favorites in shades of black.

My all black collection of garments served me so well throughout the trip, I think it will be my new packing strategy from now on.
