My Master Packing List for Lisbon

The beautiful city of Lisbon, with its charming old-world architecture, vibrant culture, and delicious local cuisine, is a destination for one of my Strategic Solitude Days with clients.
Here’s a guide on how I “packed” for Lisbon on my digital whiteboard first.
My Master Packing List For Lisbon


Before I dive into the specifics, I create a color palette: cream, black, denim, with some pops of maroon for this trip 

Color palette

I’m considering the temperatures which will be a high of 66, low of 52.

I’m considering the activities I will be doing: Client strategy work sessions, casual dinners, lunches,  touring, airport, formal dinner.

I’m considering the length of the trip: I’ll be gone for 5 days.

Knowing the answers to these items help me create the Master Packing List.


For outfits while I’m working with my client, I took inspiration from Like to Know It Style Editor Olivia Miller. She has my complexion and hair. She also has a polished style I admire for the demands of this trip.

Here are some my picks:


          Knee high boots and A sweater set from Pretty Lavish does the trick.


  • Outfit 3: For Dinner with Client

    An alpaca wrap sweater from Everlane paired with a great pair of high waisted pants I found in Sicily by Luisa Spagnoli. I wear a raw silk camisole from another Italian vendor Falconeri underneath. Banana Republic can be great for the basics, including this brown belt for contrast.


  • Outfit 4: Private Tour of Lisbon with Client

  • If I’m touring, I’m comfortable. This furry Mango jacket, paired with a modal turtleneck from the same brand keeps me cozy, paired with a set of leggings from Baleaf (Amazon brand). My Naturalizer boots are a mainstay.
