What's a girl to pack?

Sigh. I love clothes. Love love love them. Always have. Always will. Since November when I decided to start really saving for this trip I have bought exactly 2 items of clothing for myself, and they were both from target. Granted, I have bought two bridesmaids dresses but that's a different story since "I can totally wear the dresses again" (I love you Stewart and Mel!).

As a girl who has had a lifelong issue with wearing the same outfit more than once in a two week span I have a huge challenge facing me for four months in Europe. I present to you the only thing I will be bringing with me to Europe:

This backpack (http://www.rei.com/product/779900) (Mountain Hardwear Napali 50 liter Women's) will hold everything I will own on my trip from towel (travel sized and super absorbent) to underwear (that's worth a post on it's own! I'm only bringing 3 pairs!!). So, you ask, how are you bringing enough stuff for FOUR MONTHS in that tiny back pack!?!!?

I don't know! I'm going to do a dry run packing this weekend. Here's the plan so far:

Leave from Dallas to London Septemeber 1 with these things:

-2 Skirts (1 green, 1 tbd)

-2 tank tops (1 black, 1 white

-1 cotton shirt

-2 long sleve shirts

-3 pairs of easy wash and wear underwear and bras

-1 flece pullover with hood

-1 pair of athletic shorts for pjs

-1 comfy worn in tshirt for pjs

-2 books-- I'm still debating what books to take that will not be insanely heavy, too fast of a read, or too deep and boring. Suggestions?

-travel journal

-my own personal guide book that has been spliced together from tons of guide books and websites that I have read

-travel towel

-a few random toiletries

I'm seeing friends and my boyfriend Chris in October in Munich for Oktoberfest and I am asking Chris to bring a pair of jeans and long pants to me so I can switch them out for my skirts. The jeans are self explanitory but the pants are long hiking pants that can zip into shorts.

That's certainly not a lot of stuff! I think I can make it, but definitely need to bring a tide to go pen or 2! Or well, knowing me, 15.

I'll keep you updated on how the test run this weekend!!

What books are you debating between? Bring good ones and maybe you can find someone to trade w/ once you are done!
