Top - Max Studio
Jeans - 7 For All Mankind
Shoes - Born O Concept
I was so bummed this morning while getting dressed; I had forgot my socks for the boots I wanted to wear with these jeans. Such an unfortunate circumstance. I brought the boots with me, but not the right socks. In fact, I had no socks at all with me this morning. So it was particularly good that I had my trusty strappy wedges with me. Ever since I bought those shoes, I have worn them so much! They are so versatile.
But I was indeed bummed about not having the ability to wear what I wanted to. Lately I have been trying to pack more lightly. Normally I pack about 10-20 outfits for a possible 1 outfit day. Which is total overkill, but it generally prevents from happening what happened today. I brought a pair of jeans and a skirt. I also brought about three different tops. Everything interchanged thus I could have made six different outfits. But I forgot the right undergarments for the skirt, which cut out half of the potential outfits right off the bat. And then I found out, while pulling my clothes out of my suitcase, I had forgotten any socks! Wow!
What I learned from this trip is, packing lighter is nicer. I have less stuff to lug around with me. But in order to pack lighter successfully, I will need to layout every piece of the each outfit, including all appropriate undergarments and socks!
Anyway... I think the outfit I decided on worked out well enough. I, of course, love my new skinny jeans. I love them even more with the passing of time and more opportunities to wear them come about. I also really like the Max Studio top. It is super form fitting, thus along with the skinny jeans, they both work together to make me look super skinny. Which I think is great for wearing horizontal stripes. I also think the edges look good enough.
Okay. That's it for now.
Thanks for all of the great support after my last post. You all are so nice!
