I like to have a strategy when I pack for a major trip. I start a few days before we leave, lay out all of my clothing in groups, make a list of the accessories I will need and then begin. I am a little nervous about packing for India…my nerves stem from that age old question of what-to-wear? I don’t want to scream “gaudy American tourist,” but I also don’t want to look like I am trying too hard.So the name of the packing game is ‘tunic.’ Gauzy, detailed pieces that look perfect with skirts, leggings and pants.
I ran my theory by my husband (who lived in India and has traveled around extensively and could potentially be a gold mine of information) and he merely shrugged…”Looks fine to me.” Thank you for your insight, oh wise one.
I guess I am on my own here!

    Hey, girl.

    I've been following your blog for a while and love that you are about to go to India! I have some advice…I lived there for two years.

    Those tunics are perfect. I wore them with jeans or slacks nearly everyday. Usually a little longer than hip length or about mid-thigh length. Comfy, sturdy shoes are a must.

    Just FYI…you'll want to buy some clothes there. Buying beautiful, colorful fabric and having the tailor stitch you up a salwar kameez or a kurti (a tunic) in an hour that fits you to a tee is the best thing ever!

    Enjoy! Tell the subcontinent that I miss it!
