packing in retrospect

i love going places, but hate choosing what i’m going to want to wear while i don’t have my entire closet with me.

i based this trip’s suitcase on remixing. what i took…


  • a pair of dark, bootcut jeans
  • a black skirt
  • brown and white striped shorts


  • 3 colored tanks
  • 2 sweaters- 1 fitted and 1 oversized and comfy-licious
  • a maxi dress (thanks, kat, for letting me borrow your beautiful dress!)


  • gold and black gladiators, nude sandals, and a pair of flip flops
  • a simple necklace
  • 2 pairs of earings
  • a belt

i had (what felt like) endless combinations to choose from. for me this worked much better than using a “packing guide.”

ps did i mention i was only gone for parts of 3 days? i like to be freakishly overpacked prepared.

pps i love the fact that my husband can always make me laugh.
