I think it’s safe to say now that I overpacked for Korea. We never check luggage (especially when traveling standby), but because some of the gifts I was bringing were liquids, we didn’t have a choice. I should have packed my clothes and shoes as if we were only traveling with a carry-on, but I got a little carried away.
I accidentally left my entire airport outfit at my in-law’s house, where we stayed the night before our flight. Changed into this maxi dress for comfort at the last minute, but forgot to pack the camisole, black pants, and cardigan I had originally laid out for the trip. Panicked for a bit thinking my options were much more limited than I thought they would be.
But, in the end, I really only wore these pieces for the entire 10 days – mixing and matching them based on the weather and itinerary.

For a self-proclaimed minimalist and capsule wardrobe enthusiast, I didn’t take my own advice. International travel always psychs me out a little. Definitely forgot about all the space I would need for souvenirs and gifts from my family on the way back. Lesson learned, and will definitely be packing much lighter moving forward.
