The first time I heard about minimalist dressing was years ago in an article about packing for travel. I wasn't going anywhere but read the article anyway. The article told me the best thing to pack in my carry on bag was a sarong because it was a multi-purpose item.
So when we went away I packed my lovely turtle sarong, bought for me by my housemate when she had a placement in Indonesia back in 2000. I didn't know if it would get any use but thought I'd at least feel like I was going on holiday if I had the proper kit.
It has headed straight up my list of useful items. On this trip alone it was used as a skirt, pillow/neck rest in the car, bedcover (waaaaay to hot for anything heavier), post-bath wrap, picnic blanket, and a headscarf. Pretty good and almost certainly one of the best gifts ever.
