I always pack the day of travel - I find I make better choices having limited time to plan my wardrobe. In this case, my time had run out. Theo and I slept past our alarm to catch the train and ended up rushing into our week of relaxation. I grabbed a bundle of clothes, completely forgetting another equally pertinent stack of items next to it, and we fled.
What was in the other stack, you ask? Hmmm:
Tooth brushes! But don't worry, the toothpaste was packed.
Makeup brushes. Ah, so that was the missing link to my blush! Well at least I brought lipstick... oh wait, no.
My new favorite romper :(
My go-to sweater and cardigan. Both items I couldn't actually get to last week. Ironic.
When we got to the hotel and opened our suitcase, I mean, there was nothing I could do but laugh. Oh
fucking well! You know?
What you're seeing here is some emergency styling, indeed. A pair of sneakers, an off-the-shoulder jumpsuit (life-saver!!) and a robe-like cardigan I bought from Urban Outfitters when I arrived in San Diego. (Kudos to UO for this gem!)
Ah, c'est la vie. When it comes to planned events, no matter how small (mini vacation) or big (wedding day), I have always gone off script rather spectacularly. In this case, I was able to scrounge up a couple outfits to take me from day to night all week. Hopefully my resourcefulness has inspired!
Back in L.A. and fully charged for the week!
Hope you enjoyed the Memorial weekend yourselves!
Psst, see ya back on Thursday :)
