…because I got another night out with MM last night!! That’s two nights out this month already, and a couple of lunches – I should plan solo trips abroad more often! I leave for Blighty in just over a week and to say I am excited is an understatement. I’ve already started laying out my clothes in the bedroom to try and plan my capsule travel wardrobe. Never fun – there’s always more I want to take. I wish I was a good packer. The UK weather also complicates matters as I need layers and I want to take suede boots – but that’s just madness for Bury in February no? How do you pack? Do you have it down to a fine art? Tips please! You’d think I’d be a pro by now but not so.
Yesterday I was begging for more warm weather – the sun shone but I think I was overly ambitious in my J.Crew shirt (some colors, including this neon rose, are in the sale) – it was still pretty chilly. The scarf is an old H&M one and the jeans are Gap. The flats are the VInce Camuto Fawna that I got in the sale. I had to return the pink ones as the glitter came off after one wear – let’s hope these last a tad longer.
So last night we headed to our favorite bar that overlooks the downtown skyline. I ate oysters and drank prosecco – it was lovely. I wore my Hudson Leeloo jeans that I got on sale at Zappos.com. I LOVE them – so stretchy and comfy – the ‘bone’ color is perfect – not too white if you know what I mean – cream in fact! The blouse is Zara as is the jacket, and the boots are the Nine West Buster that I got on sale. The clutch is and YSL Belle de Jour, a present from MM for our anniversary a couple of years ago:) Oh and my nail polish is Chanel black satin – gorgeous color but doesn’t wear well, regardless of a great base coat and top coat.
Okay back to the packing while the kids are at the park – wish me luck!
