The more I travel, the more I am trying to simplify what I pack. During the winter, my suitcase gets bigger and heavier - and I still struggle with a cute outfit that will work as the weather changes throughout the day.
I have talked about a travel 'uniform' before. This concept is especially useful during the winter when extra heavy clothing is essential. The choices are classic, dress-up or dress-down and always in style.
Once you try the uniform approach, you will never go back to you giant over-filled suit case!
