let the packing process begin

There are five days left until I head to Tokyo and a little more than a week before I'm off to Amsterdam! I only just started packing yesterday, which pretty much consisted of me throwing clothes on the floor. The plan is to travel as light as possible! I'll be away for about two weeks, so I'm really trying to pack clothes that can be re-worn in various styles. Since Amsterdam is a pretty chilly place this time of year (not as cold as the northeast coast of the states, but cold nonetheless),  my savior will be wearing layers; and a lot of it. The items in the pictures below are the clothes that I plan to take along.  




  • five long sleeved-shirts of various lengths
  • one dress
  • one sweater
  • one long cardigan 
  • two skirts
  • two boots (... may end up taking black flats instead of the black boots.)
  • one scarf
  • four tights of various colors, thickness and textures
  • two pairs of socks
  • undergarments
  • netbook
  • chargers (netbook, phone and camera)
  • socket convertor (which I still need to buy)
  • Amsterdam travel guide book
  • random reading materials
  • toiletries
  • three belts
  • accessories

I'm limiting myself to only using  a small-sized wheeled luggage and a medium-size tote (for carry-on souvenirs like Belgian chocolate, yum~) So, all this stuff better fit!! (Hope it does... we'll see.)
 Mmm... I don't think I'm packing too much for two weeks. What do you think?
