When it comes to packing for any sort of trips.
Up until a few years ago, whenever I had to pack, I usually packed my whole wardrobe. No, let’s put it this way. I packed almost all of my favourite pieces to wear at the moment, “just in case I need anything”. But! But then a luggage of mine with 5 (!!!)(5!!!) of my favourite shoes got stollen. I, still, continued to take my whole wardrobe wherever. Just in case. I didn’t, obviously, wear but half of it. Nothing seemed to have stopped me.
Each time I had to go out, while on vacation, the drill started. Clothes were flying everywhere. Hands were pulling hair out of the head. What to wear?!. It felt like home, I had all my stuff with me. Awm. On vacation! And it was only then that I had figured it out. F*ck it, I’m going to pack less. And it has been priceless!
I actually have (more) time for… Vacation! And I have (more) room for possible (fingers crossed) acquisitions.
Now I’m talking. Am packing, actually. Now I love how I can use my creativity to shrink all of my outfit ideas into just a few. The result has to be just as good, though. Better! Better for my peace of mind for sure. I have to pack things that I know will do the trick for the trip: a four days trip to Budapest for a friends’ wedding. And aside from the party and the hotel breakfasts attached to the trip, there is the road trip.
I, at first, thought of a jumpsuit. Then, I thought of another one. And I am not kidding, I thought of the third one, too. Sadly, a jumpsuit won’t quite do the trick on a road trip. You never know where you might end up peeing (I thought and thought for a better way to say this, but hey, don’t we all pee all the time?), so, therefore, getting completely naked.
Then I thought of jeans, but it is summer! It’s going to, however, be sort of early spring in the car, due to the AC, you see?
To me, going away anywhere is a celebration. Whether by plane or car, I like to wear things I really love. It’s a celebration, therefore, every day, since I like to wear things I really love every day. I love life!
The dress I chose for the road is comfortable and hugging. The outfit on the road trip has to be as “powerful” as the ones packed for the trip. In fact, I could wear this dress every day of the trip in a different way, but I won’t. This happens, however, when I’m really into something. I force my mind to believe into thinking that I have nothing else to wear but le something. You with me?
The dress I pack for the wedding is just perfect and would go perfectly with these (I don’t, yet, have):
Off-white linen tee, blue jeans, dark blue velvet block heeled sandals and a funny scarf for whenever.
The most beautiful trousers and a think less, stupid more t-shirt to wear on Sunday (aka Hangoverday) in Budapest. Can’t wait!
All I have to do now is make the playlist and go to sleep. This waking up really early in the morning for road trips always reminds me of the family road trips back when I was a kid. Life! 🙂
