Um…it’s freezing here, I’m layered like crazy. And I’m already disappointed in my lack of preparation. It’s not that bad; I don’t have to be out in the weather very long at a time, but my mom keeps her house very cold, so I’m a little like a lizard under a sun lamp while I’m at home – literally – I move from room to room sitting in front of one of her many portable heaters, or the gas fireplace. I should have brought my heavier Inhabit NY cashmere cardigan instead of this one, but this one was all that would fit in my carry on bag. And I was going to throw in my cheap-o puffer jacket I got recently at H&M that folds up in to a teeny tiny ball, but of course that didn’t fit in my bag either. Because, duh, I HAD to bring my clogs instead of a couple more sweaters and a jacket 😉
Which begs the question, why? If I must constrain myself to only a very small carry-on bag for 5 days, do I really need more than one pair of shoes? Given the situation, where we mostly just hang around at home, visiting, and eating, why do I get so caught up in what I’m wearing, specifically my shoes? The answer is that I need some variety. The idea of sticking to just one specific look featuring one specific pair of shoes (my Vince sneakers) for 5 days kind of scares me. But it shouldn’t, and I’d like to learn how to embrace that. It would come in especially handy for traveling 😉
Do you do that too? or are you able to stick to one look while you’re traveling?
