Well, really more of a “rest comfortably in one place most of the time” stone, but that’s too many syllables.
I am traveling, though, which explains my absence of late. Lots to do before you fly to another country to visit a friend for her birthday! If only Canada was smaller, I could visit the other Interrobangs (and Danielle, Allison and many other lovelies), but, as the Arrogant Worms have taught us, “Canada’s Really Big.” Also, “Ontario Sucks.”
I have five days of traveling and have to prepare for mystery weather with a high chance of rain and absolutely no idea what I’ll be doing once I get there. Why the lack of plans? Well, the friend doesn’t actually know I’m coming…Surprise!*
Since I only want to take a carry on, but need my wardrobe to be super-flexible, time for another attempt at the capsule wardrobe.
Here’s what I decided on:
- Blue jersey dress
- Black jersey dress
- Skinny jeans
- Black leggings
- Grey squid cardigan
- Black blazer
- Black tank top
- Red and black silk shirt
- Chambray shirt
- Black heels
- Black flats
- Brown and black belt
- Black belt
- Two silk scarves
- Lace necklace
- Chunky silver and bronze necklace
I’ve decided I’m always more comfortable in dresses with layers on top and underneath, so I picked the black and blue palate with hits of grey and red. So far, I’ve got these combinations:
Eight combinations without too much thought, and depending on the weather I can layer dresses over one another, put the blazer over the cardigan over the shirt, it’s all good.
Well, I assume it’s all good. We shall see…
*Her husband knows, though. So it’s not creepy or anything.
