Packing for a Week in Thailand

36 items of clothing, 9 pairs of shoes, 4 bags

Tonight I’m heading to Phuket, Thailand, for 6 nights.

My wardrobe remains minimal as I travel. I will only be bringing a single carry on suitcase. As always, my wardrobe is tonal. Perhaps this isn’t the most exciting tropical getaway colour scheme, but it’s really not worth buying a whole new wardrobe for a little trip.

In my suitcase I am packing a few flexible items and a couple of casual pairs of shoes.

  • Black cotton maxi dress
  • Grey viscose midi skirt
  • Black viscose shorts
  • White cotton tee
  • White cotton crop top
  • Grey top
  • 2 pairs of shoes (sandals and thongs)
  • 2 bags (my favourite contrast clutch and my Longchamp Le Pliage bag)

On the plane I will be wearing almost exclusively activewear. I will use these items when I work out during the trip. I cool easily on planes, so I will also be bringing a cashmere sweater to wear during the flight. I am bringing a rain resistant jacket, which I should find handy for the inevitable rain.

  • Black tights
  • Running shoes
  • Activewear cami
  • Cashmere sweater
  • Grey jacket

So in total I will have 10 items of clothing, plus 2 bags and 3 pairs of shoes.

I will be carrying my contrast clutch in my hand with all my important documents including passport and itinerary. Le Pliage travels with me ‘just in case’. It works well as a beach bag and additional storage if needed.

When it comes to cosmetics, I am keeping things quite lean, I simply have a small clear pouch for liquids and another for dry products. I am not bringing much aside from cleanser, moisturiser and sunscreen, as the resort I’m staying in will probably provide most things I need.

I’m also bringing a floppy hat, bathers, underwear, a few first aid essentials, my laptop and a book.

Holographic sandals to keep things interesting. They go well with my contrast clutch!
