When we travel, I take a few items that work together instead of trying to pack outfits that may or may not be successful when we arrive at our destination. A few great accessories always help to create unique combinations.
For several days, we will be traveling to attend the wedding of the son of our dearest friends. There will be lots of walking, sightseeing, shopping, exploring old downtown, and eating out. All of these events will be very casual.
One of my personal packing rules is to always try on everything I am taking to make sure it looks the way I think it is going to look. There is nothing worse than getting ready for that special event only to find that the shoes you brought to go with your pants are too low to bring the hem off the floor. Today I am sharing the looks I plan to create from the items shown above on the rolling rack.
Below, I am wearing the tunic with jeans and sandals all from J.Jill. The satchel is from JMcLaughlin. The bracelet was purchased from French Kande. The crinkle cotton tunic is so light weight I could wear it even on a very hot day.
My apologies for the odd colors in these photos. The camera takes on an agenda of its own when we have to shoot inside due to rain or because it is the middle of the night.
The gala sand-washed tunic will work with all of the pants.
The jacket works perfectly with all the pants as will the turquoise tank from Birdie James. The black pants below are Chico's Travelers. The necklace was a gift from French Kande. The chain detail black sandals are DV by Dolce Vita from last year.
The white long sleeve tee is very lightweight, so I can wear it with the vest and the white jeans when we go out to dinner.
The pieces shown above can be worn in many combinations according to the weather and where we are going. I am just showing you a few of the ways I plan to wear them.
My look for the wedding will include the swing blouse by IC Collection over a tank by Clara Sunwoo and white pants by Lior Paris. All these items were a gift from ShopMyFairLady.com. The silver clutch is old from T.J.Maxx. The silver sandals are old by BCBGeneration.
The life changing Ultimate Back Smoothing Bra & Body Shaper by Shapeez.com. I will be buying the black one as well and will be wearing these for the rest of my life. This is the first bra/shaper item I have ever worn that is so comfortable you forget you have it on, and it actually smooths your midsection and back without being hot. Epic!
Here is a video also!
Have a great week! We will be back soon.
Thank you so much for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
