This is my suitcases's worth of clothing in the end. I didn't picture the second of my pair of boots and as I said, I forgot bags, but this would definitely fit into a small suitcase! I also just realised you'd need to pack at least two pairs of bloomers as well as at least one petticoat, but they'd fit too! In real life, you'd probably have to do a little laundry to keep things fresh, but at the same time you have enough versatile items here that you wouldn't have to be frantically washing things at night just so you have something to wear in the morning.
I decided to make the imaginary trip I travelling for a Spring journey so I could layer but not have to be depending on coats and other warm things, as well as to avoid making a blog post filled with brown, brown and more brown ^__^
To that end, I chose three light coloured main pieces to start with. I followed the rule of my formula and had one jumperskirt, skirt and onepiece with two being patterned and one being a solid colour.
For tops again I followed the formula I'd already devised of two blouses and two outerwear, though I didn't follow the other suggestions I normally make, such as having a neutral blouse with detachable sleeves. However, I think I've covered all my bases with these tops; casual and smart, warmer and cooler.
I also followed my formula for accessories, only modifying it by adding some additional hair accessories in the form of the flowers and having two patterned OTKS rather than one patterned and one plain.
Now that I've shown you what I'm "packing for my trip", let me show you some of the outfits I could wear while travelling. I haven't come up with specific scenarios in which I'd wear each outfit but as you can see I think there's an outfit there for pretty much any location or activity you'd wear lolita to.
Casual and summery, perfect for a hotter day or outdoor activities.
Another more casual outfit, this one good for slightly chillier weather.
This one is probably my favourite outfit and one I would totally wear, it's just so cute with the cream and the pink. Once again it's quite casual but somehow I feel like it's actually quite elegant as well.
Now we're getting into less casual territory, as this outfit incorporates more traditionally lolita aspects with the OTKS and the bolero. Note another good aspect of this bolero - the fancy lace collar can be removed, leaving you with a simple brown bolero.
Then we have the casual-est outfit of all! I really like it though.
Then we spring back from casual to a fancier outfit with lots of textual details which makes it a very eye-catching outfit despite only featuring two colours.
Lastly, a very straightforward and typically lolita look to round out the week's worth of outfits.
As I was putting together the outfits for this post, I really could have made so many more. I'm not sure if I could have strung it out to two weeks worth without getting repetitive, but I definitely could have put together ten outfits! Which made me really happy, because it means the formula I came up with for building a compact yet versatile lolita wardrobe really can work.
