7 days travel cluster

7 day Travel cluster

So I am travelling to India for work, and will be working with 3 clients on their wardrobe decluttering, personal styling and shopping with them. The requirement is simple, it has to be super comfortable.

Travel cluster consists of :

  • 2 pair of denims (one for travelling)
  • 1 skirt
  • 8 tops – solids / self print / fancy hemlines
  • 1 fancy coverup
  • 1 pair of sneakers
  • 1 pair of open toes flats
  • 1 big brown bag

As you see in the above picture i have opted for floral embroidery and torn style denim, hence decided to keep my tops solid in colour. However because my tops are all solids, i like to keep a variety in terms of their texture and style.

Travel packing is not difficult, read my blog on this 7 days casual travel packing tips to get a clarity on how to plan your packing and clustering. I also have a printable PDf outfit planner to help you Pack.

Personal – Social – Professional Attire

Personal - Social - Professional Attire

 

Everyone has a different lifestyle, even 2 people living in the same house will have a different lifestyle / the type of people they interact with .
But our lifestyles can be boradly classified under three sections.
  • Personal
  • Social
  • Professional

Depending on what we want to project or create a brand for ourselves we should dress accordingly.

Say for someone working in a bank / consulting firm where their role is more client facing, it is advisable to follow the Business formal wear guidelines.

The basic idea is we should seperate our Personal – Social – Professional attire, a bit of overlapping or mixing clothes is all right but if we dress the same everywhere than we are not projecting the right appropriate image.

Your own Image has various nuances to it, being appropriate to where you are going is one of the important aspects of dressing up.

When you audit your closet , seperate your outfits / clothes in these broad sections ans than evaluate what you have and what us missing for you to create an appropriate image for yourself.

Keep in mind, its not just the clothes, its the whole look / style that you evaluate. Your accessories and jewllery should also resonate with what type of image you are projecting.

Travel Packing – Indian Wedding

Travel Packing - Indian Wedding

 

My brother got married few months back and we decided to shift to a bungalow closer to the venue where all of us could stay together. Planning fun things and wedding was easy but packing for wedding so difficult.
My top tip is to cut on shoes and bags. The outfits and makeup are always so glamorous plus we don’t realise how we can double up our shoes and bags usage.

Travel Packing – 4 days beach vacation

Travel Packing - 4 days beach vacation

 

Travel packing can be harrowing experience if not planned well.

The above cluster is a sample about a 4 day fun beach vacation.

2 shorts and 4 tops for relaxing day, one sequinned top if you want to glam up your night. Most beach places are very hot and humid even at night, you can dress in summer dresses at night with a soft cardigan incase it gets a little chilly.

Every piece can be combined well with each other and the accessories as well…

Add two swimsuits and few coverups for the beach and you are all set for your vacation.

Oh don’t forget your sunblock and basic makeup kit.
