Are you someone who packs ahead and has everything done a week before your trip? I am on the other end of the spectrum. I am one of those who will pack the night before we leave or even the day of the trip. Lol! I go through and pick out so many things because I can’t decide what I am for sure going to wear. Then, because I don’t try it on first, I take more than I will ever wear just because I don’t know if it will fit or look right. Are any of you shaking your head right now? I also end up with the wrong shoes and the wrong jewelry because I didn’t put it all together beforehand and I get ill when I think about what I have at home that would look perfect with the outfit. I made a deal with my Energizer Bunny Friend that I would try on at least 2 outfits a day, complete with shoes and jewelry, and lay them aside to pack in my suitcase. That was Sunday and so far I hadn’t done a single outfit but the great thing was, neither had she. Lol! I figure that I will need at least 2 outfits per day. One outfit to go to trainings and meetings and then another outfit for dinners that we have scheduled for every night that we are there. Today, I started the process. I am so proud of myself for this tiny little accomplishment that I have done. I actually got together about 5 or 6 outfits with all of the accessories. Here is the only problem that I can foresee happening; I will probably change my mind about several of the outfits that I have picked out. Hahaha! The good thing is that we are flying first class and we get 2 suitcases for free and they can weigh up to 70 lbs. each!!! I can just see me now trying to navigate in the airport with 2 huge suitcases, talk about comical! This wrap top that was in my recent Trunk Club shipment (join here) combines casual style and a chic look at the same time. I love the pleats and folds of the top that makes it look effortless and gives a great draping effect. The deep plunge v-neck might be a little lower than I would normally wear so I can remedy that by moving the snap later just a little higher on the lapel. The tie closure adds to the casual look and gives it some visual interest. This is hand wash an line dry and I am wearing a size medium. Go here to see the top. I thought the turquoise accessories look good with the lilac color. I chose the Serena necklace and the Makia earrings for that pop of turquoise color. The Serena necklace even has a brightly colored stone and a cream marble stone pendant. The bracelet is multi-strands on different colors and added a little fun to the look. Today is the LAST day to purchase any of the retiring jewelry. If you want a list of the items that are retiring then let me know. This month is my 3 year Blog anniversary! I can’t believe that it has been that long! I am celebrating by offering a free piece of jewelry with every 50.00 purchase (excluding taxes and shipping) made this entire month! Go here and have fun shopping! Make sure that you pick a party with my name in it so that I can track the purchases. I bought these NYDJ pull-on release hem jeans a couple of months ago and they were in my Trunk Club shipment also. Lol! Listen, when you live in the boonies and have no shopping opportunities this is a life saver. I really like the free shipping and returns. I can try on my items in my home and with my clothing that I already own. I have become a huge fan of NYDJ jeans. I had never bought this brand before until they started coming in my TC shipments and now I am hooked. They fit so nicely and I love the shape enhancing features.
