I'm taking a break from packing to get this posted - I'll be away visiting family for the rest of the month, and will be missing my Beary and the hens, home, and y'all just madly.
|scarf: Charming Charlie, last worn here|
shirt: Fred David, Giant Tiger, last worn here
grey striped vest: Dynamite, thrifted, last worn here
crud quality but otherwise heartbreakingly perfect pencil skirt:
Smart Set, last worn here
plaid tights: Joe Fresh
shoes: Fluevog Mini Gorgeous, last worn here
I've had these shoes for about eight years, they are holding up beautifully.
Thank you, John Fluevog!
In stark contrast, this skirt makes me grouchy. It has been pilling brutally since the first wear, but because everything else about it is exactly right, it's a giant pain to replace.
I've been blogging for six months (whoo!) and have come up with two ways to create a significant backlog:
- managing to take outfit photos as I go but not having time to post, or
- lately being even more in a hurry during the week and having to put outfits back on for photos over the weekend when time and daylight seem a bit easier to come by.
It didn't occur to me until just now - right while I'm packing even more last-minute-like than usual after the traditional working-myself-into-the-ground-in-preparation - that travelling would have been an opportunity to blog about a capsule wardrobe and such. I didn't use to be any good at packing light, but now I do fine with just a carry-on for two weeks. Except for last year when I shopped too much and had to check a bag on the way home. Oops!

Okay, must dash! I leave early in the morning, but hope to be able to join up with the amazing folks gathering at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday from the road, fingers crossed. Wishing safe journeys to you as well!
