packing 101

this is not a lesson in packing - I just couldn't think of another title.

I have some insane travel coming up in the next couple months. starting with a trip to vegas, followed quickly by a short trip to cabo and finally a looong (and much needed) vacation to Paris, London and South Africa. (eeeeeeeee!!!) I'm already starting to map out my suitcase in my head as I need to pack for two continents, two hemispheres, two seasons all in the same suitcase. it's exhausting just thinking about it. but I need to get clever with my choices and be able to wear the same pieces in a variety of ways (and climates!)

it's all about the layers! shorts paired with tights, blouses with a light scarf, hats for warmth and to block the sun...and neutral colors to easily mix and match (plus comfy shoes!).

I am so jealous of all your upcoming travels. With your wardrobe I am sure you will be able to mix match the perfect outfits for all weather. Miss you xoxo

Oh Shelby, your style makes me all kinds of happy. You'd be a blast in Vegas with this outfit.
