James Perse stretch canvas surplus pants | still gone from the site…
Splendid layering top
No6 Clog wedges (mid-wedge) | I’m selling my size 38, hardly worn
Admonish leather tote bag
This is it…I made it! 🙂
A few fashion-y, packing observations:
- One pair of shoes is enough for 5-6 days in Atlanta in February. I did wear my clogs a little yesterday and today, but I didn’t need to have them, and they took up a lot of room in my carry-on suitcase
- My sister’s new puppy tore holes in both my James Perse and Splendid leggings while I was here. My mom stitched them up for me, and they’re wearable, but they won’t last very long like that. I did go to target a couple of times while I was here and thought I should grab a pair of leggings, but I didn’t. Oh well. It’s nobody’s fault but mine – maybe I should rethink the need for $70 leggings? Yes, and no. I have a few pairs of black leggings from Target but I didn’t bring them because I’d rather have my favorites with me. Also, the James Perse leggings are the ONLY pair I own that actually fit me perfectly and are the right length for my short inseam. So, I do own cheaper leggings that I would otherwise wear in a situation like being around a puppy, but I didn’t bring them. What’s the lesson? I don’t know…but I’m not giving up on my James Perse leggings.
- A good scarf/shawl is indispensable. I almost didn’t bring my Virginia Johnson shawl in favor of my Lululemon rulu circle scarf (sold out) to have something darker and smaller (and washable), but I’m glad I did end up bringing it. It’s perfect as a blanket, as a scarf, as a shawl, as a pillow…whatever. My shawl is 5-6 years old and has been more than worth the $195 I paid for it (here’s a great pattern on sale now for $97). I never travel without it.
I’ll deconstruct more later, and I wanted to do a video of what’s in my tote while I was here, but I never got around to it. All in all, I’m okay with how I packed and what I brought. I wonder (again – always) why I worry so much about it. About everything, really. But that’s for later!
