Warm clothes to put on if it's cool, light clothes if it turns hot, dressy clothes for going out for a nice supper and my Birkenstocks! lol Nothing worse than sore feet on a trip.

I own the dress in black and two different colors/patterns, I love them! The bonus is that they dry quickly if you have a catastrophic spill and need to wash it in the hotel room sink! If I am in between sandal and boot season, I usually wear it with flats. I'll do nude flats with the more colorful dresses.

My oversized cashmere hoody. Always kick myself when I don't bring it. Lightweight, instant warmth anywhere.
Looks cute belted with jeans, makes a great hotel robe and pool cover-up. Like a cosy security blanket.

A simple but handy coat or jacket. Especially lite enough that I can put in my bag and not have to carry around when not needed.

If it's warm, I can wear the blouses with the sleeves rolled up. I can wash them in a hotel sink and they dry overnight, while taking up very little room in the suitcase.

Comfortable shoes are a necessity, I only take shoes that I've broken in for a couple of weeks beforehand.
Clothes are easy but how do you handle the liquids? Fine for the small bottles of 50ml or less, but I don't want to spend tons of time trying to shop for all my unscented toiletries (I'm allergic), bottle of eye wash, eye drops, nasal wash, toothpaste, mouthwash, hand gel, lip cream, etc etc. And try finding these items in a country where you don't speak the language and can't read the labels.

I also have to carry a camera backpack to hold all the lenses, etc. That would be two carry ons.

I do the opposite, LOL. I wear plain shirts and patterned skirts.

I find dresses to be versatile when traveling for work or pleasure. I love the Prana Quinn dress. It packs small and doesn't wrinkle. i can wear leggings and boots underneath it in the winter, bare legs and sandals in the summer. I pair it with a cardigan for work to cover the shoulders or in the colder months.

Speaking of cardigans, I am a big fan of mix and match clothes when traveling: fitted tees, cardigan and neutral pants (like jeans or black pants). That way any shirt will go with any pant or sweater.
I bought several pashmina years ago in Thailand and still use them all the time. Keep one stashed in each car as well. Although this last flight , my 4yo daughter snagged it to cuddle with and fell asleep. O opted for chilly arms over waking her up.

We spent June, July and half of August in Hawaii. I bought two Quinns to wear there and am considering a black one now that we are moving into fall.

Winter and Fall, I wear my BOC leather slip-ons. I'm on my second pair.

I always bring black yoga pants and a longer tunic type top, a pair of fuzzy socks, and a pashmina. Everything else depends on the season/weather.
