Traveling to New Zealand: Autumn Wardrobe

It's Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere of our planet right now and I'll have to dress accordingly when I arrive in New Zealand this Friday/Saturday depending on which side of the international date line you reside. To prevent me turning into a Clarice-cicle as my friends would say in their 45°F average fall temps I went down to the Goodwill and picked out a bevy of sweaters. I have sweaters but not very many, certainly not enough for a twelve day trip where I may not be able to wash my clothes that often. I also found a nice winter coat and an infinity scarf that I was assured would be necessary both for warmth and comfort on the long plane ride over. I ordered boots from DSW but I'm not holding my breath that they'll get here on time (I ordered them on the 2nd of this month and they still haven't shipped yet...all that for another post perhaps.) and I pulled my winter clothing I do have out of storage. 

It's taken a long time for me to be able to pack in a spatially economical way for a trip of any duration. I think I've done okay this time around (save for the some 13 sweaters I've managed to shove in my suitcase) and I wanted to share with you some of the pieces I'll be bringing. Without further ado:

I'm not sure when I'll be able to update the blog but you can follow my trip with me on instagram @offcultured. I'll see you all again soon!
