…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!
I love love love your first outfit. Can’t wait to see you and can’t help with packing other than get a bigger suitcase!!!
I LOVE your YSL bag 🙂
I HATE packing!! I get so damn stressed, sometimes I’d rather not go places because of the thought of packing. You have plenty to choose from so I think you’ll be fine Joanna. Jealous of you in your pumps, the weather is still dire here, so pack warm.
Both outfits are fabulous, the peachy orange shirt is gorgeous on you as is that cream and white and black outfit – so cool. I leave packing till the half hour before we leave, even my littlest nags me the night before. And I never have complete and satisfying outfits
