Well like you said "preferences and habits". I haven't worn a nightgown since I was a child. If the room was too warm, I'd sleep in a t-shirt.

Greetings, Folks

Indeed, you have removed the anxiety I once had about over packing, and for this, I kindly thank you.

Sooooo....yes, I have a nude colored camisole and will replace it with the white one. As for the nightgown, the one I own is very thin, but I do have some t-shirts that are sturdy and long and I can throw one of them in the luggage and it won't take up too much space. The PJs I'm taking is a 2 piece set that kinda looks like a causal outfit. If I wore it out in public, it wouldn't be apparent that it's for sleeping.

Scarves: What's ironic about the scarves is that I collect them when I travel. I like to purchase scarves that reflect the country I'm in (one my favorites is a green scarf I purchased in Ireland with shamrocks on it and I enjoyed wearing it while in Ireland), so I plan on buying some additional scarves while touring. The black one I'm taking is nice, but it's also soft and very warm.

Suze, the black tights are to keep my legs warm if I'm out on a really cold night. They are an "as needed" item only.

Okay, so the changes:
Add hat
Nude color camisole (to replace white)
Add extra long t-shirt (for sleeping in)
Add large ziplock bags: I actually put my clothes in extra large ziplock bags. It works wonders for wrinkling and when I press the air out, I get more packing space, too.

If you think of anything else, let me know. My luggage is still opened to suggestions!

Cheers and happy travels to you all!

Thanks, Suze. It's because I have excellent teachers here!

Believe me learned it the hard way. I have more often packed too little than packed too much, but I love the challenge of packing "just right" for any trip.
