So far, the hurricane hasn’t caused much commotion here in Boston, but it has delayed our drive out to Cape Cod. What does one do when one is stranded in a house full of family until 5pm? Well one creates a few outfits, of course. My cousin is to blame for the ridiculous one. She told me to wear the bikini top, and mind you I did not venture further than the yard in this one. The other outfit is comprised of my carefully selected suitcase contents. Since I’m on the east coast I saw it only fitting to select casual items in preppy, nautical, and ever-so-slightly conservative styles (bikini tops aside). I was so excited to be wearing jeans, a scarf, and boots (sorry 112-degree suffering Austinites), that I had to frolic a little bit in the breeze.
When packing your suitcase for a trip, remember to select items in colors and styles that can be easily mixed and matched. This way, you can blindly reach into your suitcase and throw on whatever you grab first and it will still make nice outfit. You might even be able to mix prints!
I’ll be back in town soon, and you can still get a great deal ($127 through September) on my Suitcase Prep Service, so check it out!
