Purse: Travelon cross body signature slim pouch. I've used these as daily purses for the last two years and love them.
Day bag - Laurel Burch large cat zipper top tote - will hold jewelry, tablet/cords, meds, 3-1-1, misc. on way over and serve as suitcase for overnight trips. I used to carry this daily as a purse.
Long boots are packed because although I can easily walk in them all day, I have nervous legs and could not bear to wear them while just sitting on such a long flight.
It took some trial packing to keep the weight down to manageable yet still take the few extra shirts/pants and the extra set of lounge wear that I want. There were several things that just had to stay behind because of weight or being too fluffy. All clothing is nice-casual that will be appropriate for any venue we plan to visit. Overall I am pleased since this is the approximate weight I carried on our fall trip last year.
Flying - Tuesday, 6 Dec, 2016. Amsterdam, Here I come!
