As much as i try and refrain from shopping before vacation-who am i kidding-in my head i'm refraining, but the rest of me is flicking through the (clearance) racks looking for the perfect clothes to bring (and that the boyfriend won't notice as new). For Alaska, there were new boots. For Hawaii or Aruba, how can one not get sun dress happy? And for France, it's stripes and neutrals.
Everything was on sale or clearance, and have a lot of mix and match potential. Any Tom's fans out there? I got these for this trip-do you think they will be comfy enough for all day sightseeing? Also, there will be pants. There were just none newly purchased to show you. But rest assured there will be pants.
I'm trying to get a little dressier with my every day clothes, especially for this trip, so i'm jumping on the blazer bandwagon and pairing them with a more casual shirt. Blazer to me always meant interview, or stuffy, or constricting. Happily this one is in sweatshirt material. Hello little polka dot lining, could you be any cuter?
Also, this. France made of cheese and bread.
Now please excuse me while i re-watch Amelie and Midnight in Paris in hopes of absorbing the language by osmosis!
