Travel Tuesday: What I Wore in Hong Kong and India

Traveling to Hong Kong and India has to be one of the highlights of my life – the trip was amazing. The hardest part about the trip was that I had to pack only one suitcase for two weeks. It literally took me over four hours to pack.

I spent so much time choosing appropriate outfits for the office while trying to figure out how to mix and match my weekend clothes without feeling like I didn’t pack enough. At the end of the day, I wore almost everything I packed with the exception of one t-shirt, swimsuit coverup and swimsuit and I rarely felt like I had NOTHING to wear. I did pick up a couple of items while I was over there, so I think this helped me to keep the outfits varied.

For today’s Travel Tuesday post, I wanted to do this round up of mirror selfies/iPhone pics to share a few of the outfits I wore throughout my trip to give you an idea of how/what I packed for both work and play.
