A year abroad in Brazil. And I must fit all that comes with me in one checked luggage and one carry on? Madness! Yes I’m one of those people who imagines to find use in every single article of clothing of theirs whilst packing. So I will be attempting to pack most all (~90%) of my entire wardrobe in my allowed luggage. Crazy or na? My mother has tried to convince me that I won’t be wearing most all of the clothes I plan to bring, nor should I pack that much but I kid you not, I am
damn darn stubborn.
I do acknowledge that I probably will only be wearing really casual clothes and repeat my outfits tons of times, but no. I must bring my whole closet with me. There’s always the possibility that I will wear all my clothes and have the motivation to dress up all the time, even if that possibility is quite slim. I love dressing up and this past school year I, once again, kid you not that I didn’t scrub a single day of the school year and I wore every item in my closet at least once! This argument probably is irrelevant to packing all of my clothes for my year abroad, but I thought I’d just throw that in there.
There’s also a high possibility that I won’t be able to fit even 1/3 of my wardrobe into my luggage. Oops. BUT that is why I bought space bags! In a perfect world they will make everything fit perfectly, but I have yet had the chance to try them out. When I do end up packing, you can count on an update because, clothes.
