I am planning a little getaway the middle of next month, so I have been thinking about my wardrobe. I get in such a rut and wear the same things all the time. I havn't shopped much because I am trying to lose a few pounds, but sometimes you just need a few "refresher" pieces. I don't want to buy any investment pieces since this is a size I do not want to embrace, however Ross and Marshalls came through with a few budget friendly items..
I found a beautiful silk blouse that will be fabulous for a nice dinner out.
I spent less than $100 and think I have some really cute pieces to add to my wardrobe. Great pieces to mix in with things I already have.
I will be gone two weeks. This is going to be a casual destination, no need for anything dressy, so here is what I am planning to pack: ( The weather is usually in the 50's to 60's with some rain, however there is always the possibility of snow)
Black Knit Pants (add a black tank and I have pj's.)
3 White Knit Tops - (l with sequins)
3 Black Knit Tops - (1 with sequins)
Long Sleeve Turtleneck Knit Top
2 tank tops
Denim long sleeve shirt
Black Cardigan Sweater
Cream Cardigan Sweater
(Both cardigans can be worn alone with a scarf for another outfit)
assorted scarfs and jewelry
Everything will be easy to mix and match since I am basically using black and white, plus depending on the weather I can layer if it is cold. To change things up and give my outfits some variety and "punch", I will use a variety of scarves and jewelry. I've already tested and it all goes in 1 carry on bag.
(Packing Tip - If you select knit or silky items, they take up very little space, plus no wrinkles if rolled & packed carefully)
I am joining the following parties:
