I absolutely love finding out all the little details that can make my trip even better.

The soap flakes or where to find good looking waterproof womens shoes/boots are just a couple of great examples. Finding out what worked for someone else is invaluable. Getting this type of specific information is one of the many reasons these forums are so helpful for me when trip planning.

I did not check out this thread for a few days and I just had a good laugh over a couple of the posts. A fleece skirt?!! Where is Thin when you need him.

But stylish, at least according to them.

No one said how many pair of underwear to take. This person is brand new to the idea of packing for 2-1/2 weeks in a carry-on bag. So I gave an example of what a packing list might look like.

I find this kind of thread which degenerates into squabbles intensely amusing.

Of course people wear skirts over tights, that's perfectly normal, but a skirt over pants is completely different. I have never heard of such a thing (except when I was a small child in northern Ohio and we had to walk to school in winter--we had to wear skirts to school back then, and so needed pants for the cold). Now I looked at that photo of the woman in London and it's not really over "pants". Those just look like slouchy tights or leggings, not something you'd wear alone as real pants. But it did look okay, you need a long, full skirt to pull that off.

I think the idea of wearing layers on the plane to be able to take as many clothes as you can which don't fit in your bags doesn't make any sense at all. Think about it -- what are you going to do with all these clothes during your trip if they don't fit in your bag? They won't disappear and you'll need some way to carry them around on your trip. The only thing I wear on a plane that might not fit in my bag if colder weather is some kind of jacket or coat, of course.

I think the OP hasn't thought through the idea of weighing your body down with stuff that you have no other way to carry, to its endpoint. Besides, 3 pairs of yoga pants really doesn't make sense as they'd all be the same thing. You don't need 3 of the same item. And you shouldn't even be able to fit 3 pair of yoga pants on at the same time as they are so slim fitting. So stick with taking only what you can fit in your bag, and one normal outfit you are wearing.

I have to disagree about the skirts over pant. I saw that years ago in Zurich, and I saw it only this summer in the Goethe Institute in Göttingen.

I kind of like the idea of a fleece skirt. The only hesitation I have is that it looks a bit tight for all the walking that's done in cities.

Over the years I've found that for me is... if I don't wear it at home I'm not going to wear it when traveling. So I just try to do my best in figuring out the climate and forecasted temperatures. I do try to pack the lightest weight items that fit that premise. Also keeping in mind things that wash easily if I'm on an extended trip.

I'm with ceezee. when I travel I take my most favorite regular clothes. Say the 3-4 best outfits, the ones that I'd reach for first in my own closet at home, in that same season/weather.

The only reason you might want ONE pair of yoga pants is if you're using them as PJs.

My one pair of yoga pants are for the plane. Especially for our next trip which involves a 14 hour flight. Actually, now that you mention it, they're basically going to be pj's but just on the flight.
