This weekend I’m off to my College reunion. It’s my first time travelling solo since August 2006! I’m sad because I’m leaving my kiddies behind – but I’m trying not to dwell on it. I know that I’d regret not attending this event – SO many of my bestest friends are going to be there! (Including one who’s a loyal reader of this blog…E – you’re getting a sneak preview!)
Today I’ve been busy planning what outfits I’m going to take. I’m trying to pack light, since I don’t want to check-in any bags. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
Sweater & Tank – Old Navy, Pants – Dorothy Perkins (UK brand), Sandals – Payless
Top & Camisole – H&M, Sandals & Pants – same as above.
Dress – Wallis (UK brand), Camisole – H&M, Sandals – Payless NIGHT:
Dress – Lauren by Ralph Lauren, Sandals – Payless
(**This dress has some ruffling and ruching that doesn’t show up in my pictures – it isn’t as shapeless as it seems here!)
Cardigan – GAP, Top – Garage, Jeans – Miss Selfridges (UK brand), Sandals – Payless
I’m only taking 2 pairs of shoes with me – the Payless sandals I bought during their BOGO event. (Close-up pics here and here). I’m deliberately not taking heels – they take up lots of space – and I want to have fun and enjoy myself – without limping around! As for accessories, I’m taking the bare minimum. I’ll be staying in a dorm (just like the good old days!) so I don’t want to take anything too valuable with me.
Pendants and Earrings:
On Thursday I’ll be getting a manicure, pedicure and my hair blow-dried. It’s been over 5 years since I’ve had a manicure done! I hope to pick up some techniques to make my home-manicures look more professional. And then Friday – I’ll be flying out – eek!
Do you have any exciting travel plans coming up? I’d love to read about it in the comments!
