Oh The Joy's Of Packing

Riddle Me This!? 
Why does it take a man about 5 min. to pack and a woman about 5 hours?? 

I guess I am having so much trouble because all I keep hearing is how darn HOT it is going to be and now there is rain in the forecast.  No umbrellas are allowed, so what does one pack to stay cool, stay dry or just look good drenched in sweat a beautiful glow or rain? 

I am just going with my instincts and packing the coolest clothes I own and an oh so trendy  rain poncho and baseball cap.  I bet you can't wait to see the pictures!

Luckily I wasn't glowing or rained soaked last Thursday, when I wore this little number.

My beloved stripe maxi skirt. 
 I just can't get enough of this thing.
I will tell you that I usually NEVER wear the color of my top. 
Let's not forget the chili pepper shirt incident. 
 It had just enough of a pinkish tone so it didn't wash me out.  
Plus I LOVE the neckline of this shirt and hey, what are those all over the front of the shirt??? 
 White sequins! 
 How could I not buy this shirt?
Yea, not sure what I was thinking when I posed for this shot. 
Gotta good caption for it???

Well, kids... I am off  to Nashville in the morning.

Oh, yea...tan update
Well, I don't look like the Australian Gold posters they had up in the place.
I definitley got color.  I think a 3 would have been too dark, wish they had a 2 1/2
I think next time I will go the airbrush route for a special occasion, but I would say I got my 10 bucks worth out of this!

Have a wonderful trip! And that top was indeed a fabulous score!

Actually that last pose is a yoga pose!  I'm admiring the top--I like the collar.  Have fun on your trip and stay as cool and dry as you can.

Love the top... I will be looking for it next time I hit The Loft! I don't think it washes you out at all. Have fun in Nashville. xo

A man doesn't care if he sweats or gets wet....women care what they look like every step of the way!  Women also want options...just in case we change our minds.... oh well, you look great...this is a cool outfit and I know you are going to have a wonderful time!!

Hey There Carole! said...

I love this outfit on you!

Stacey said...

Peggy said...

Have a wonderful time! I love my striped maxi too! I have my eye on a couple chevron stripe skirts coming out at Old Navy!!

The packing thing is hilariously true! Whenever we go someplace, I agonize and shop for days over my packing while my hubbins throws a few polos, some cargo shorts, and some man-panties in his bag and he's good to go. For real.

That maxi skirt is AMAZING :))) And you're right... women do take 5 hours. I will soon be going to Ibiza and I am already scared of having to pack :D But I must say you look GREAT :)))

Tracy said...

I say yes to that dress. I know it's not a dress. It's a skirt, but nothing rhymed with that! You look amazing. As always.

I sure love that skirt!

packing is an art form. men do not understand this. you need the perfect combination of clothes that will adapt to any situation and all pair together simultaneously. I hope you have a great trip!
