{Travel} What I'm Packing for Scotland & Ireland

We're leaving soon for our trip to Europe and I think I finally know what I'm packing. I'm trying to pack lightly and keep it all in a small carry on bag (plus a backpack as my personal item).
Bottoms:
Black denim jeggings
Black overall jumper
Denim skirt
Boyfriend Jeans*
 See my suitcase and packing cubes here.

It helped to lay out my outfits and it will be nice to have photos to refer to when I'm away.  I probably could have packed lighter but I like having a few extra  options. I've put together 16 outfits for 10 days by mixing 4 basic bottoms and 10 different tops that can be layered (and I'm sure I could get quite a few more outfits if I kept on going).
Tops:
Chambray Button Down
Gingham Button Down
Black Tunic Sweater
Black Striped Long Sleeve Tee
Chunky Striped Sweater
Black Cardigan
Grey/White Striped Cardigan
Grey Turtleneck
Pumpkin Long Cardigan*
Black V-Neck Tee Shirt
I'll fill in with accessories.  Meanwhile I'm sure most of the outfits will be covered by a raincoat but that's ok!  

Accessories:
Raincoat*
Black Fleece Lined Tights (2)
Leopard Scarf
Camel Felt Hat*
Black Knit Hat/Gloves
Black Ankle Boots*
TOMS Slip On Shoes
Black Belt*
Jewelry
*Wearing on plane.

What do you think? Am I ready??

Hi Heather, wow, you are amazing! I can't believe all of the outfits you have and everything fits in that carry on! I don't think I could manage 10 days in a carry on. I have a problem of over packing! I pinned your post. I hope you have a wonderful time away.
