Let’s start with the basics….don’t forget you will be out and about a lot more and will need a few outfit changes for dinner etc. Try to take items that you can mix and match to save on packing space. Make sure you are going to be comfortable in what you’re wearing as you may be out for long periods of time and it’s the worst thing in the world being in trousers that hurt, pinching shoes or not wearing enough and simply freezing your bum of all day!
