My visit to Toronto is just over a week away, dear readers – I leave on May 11th – which means I’ve started my pretty predictable pre-trip panic. Is it the flight I’m worried about?? Not at all; aside from the airport security chaos, I actually quite enjoy flying. The biggest issue for me when it comes to travelling is always “what on earth am I going to pack”?? 😱
This probably seems – at least initially – to be a rather unusual issue for a personal style blogger to be struggling with; after all, I’ve had plenty of practice putting together hundreds of outfits over the years!! But the thing is, when I’m here at home I have my entire closet to pull from – which means that I can edit my ensemble at a moment’s notice. When I’ve packed for a trip, however, I’ve committed to a much more limited wardrobe selection…and therein lies the rub. What if the weather isn’t what I’m expecting, and I’m stuck with too many sweaters and not enough skirts?? Or even worse – what if I simply change my mind??
Such a ridiculous #firstworldproblem to have, I know – I’m actually poking a little fun at myself with this post. After all, just a short time ago, I was struggling with a way more legitimate fear regarding my health. And since my photographer (aka my amazing hubby!) won’t be coming with me on this trip, it’s not as if any of my outfit choices will even be documented…so what the heck am I stressing about??
Still – no fashionista worth her fleur de sel would want to look less than fab for the family, am I right?! Which means that I’ll be spending a sizeable chunk of the upcoming weekend getting all my “vacation wardrobe” ducks in a row!! What do you think – have I got a couple of contenders with my chambray shirt, white cropped jeans, plaid wool cardi-coat, and baker boy cap?? You’ll want to get your votes in while you can!! 😉
