I posted last month about all the things I wished I had brought with me to Scotland, saying I’d soon write up everything I did bring. Well, this is me keeping that promise!! In this post you’ll get to see literally everything I brought with me, and what I packed everything in.
But before we get into this I want to say one little disclaimer. What each student needs to bring abroad will definitely vary. So while you can totally use my list as inspiration on what to pack, you may want to bring different things I left out, or not bring as much of a certain item that I did. That’s totally fine. Especially since not everyone is a fashion obsessed girl who owns too many clothes to fit in her closet at home and will never be caught wearing the same outfit twice.
Okay, first things first. I packed everything in three suitcases and my backpack. Yes, three. I’m not even going to try and justify that because of the disclaimer above.
I brought a large (about 30x19x11 inches) suitcase, a medium one (about 26x18x10 inches), and then a carry on (about 25x14x8 inches) suitcase. All three are the hard case rolling suitcases that allow you to fit even more than you expected since each has two compartments.
The backpack I used was just the basic one I use for classes. And it’s actually my all time favorite backpack I’ve ever used!! It has a separate pocket inside for my laptop and a zipper pocket inside as well! I usually keep a couple tampons and pads in there for emergencies.
What I Packed
- Black cami dress – gotta have an LBD, plus the cut is good for layering
- Long sleeve dress
- Tank dress – also good for layering
