Packing for the world!

Last evening. . . . . . . 
I wrote a long post to accompany these photos of my packing for the journey
And then something happened and the entire thing disappeared into thin air 
prior to posting. So frustrating.

My time for blogging is a bit limited right now so this is a quick replacement 
version, less detailed, and with fewer explanations as to how this lover of plain
 neutrals has suddenly done an about face and added some prints to the mix!
It started with that zebra print caftan this summer and now includes a few
other animal prints and a bold geometric.
Worn with my basics I should have a good mix.

Today's the day for packing. . . . . . .

. . . . . . . .a few pieces of clothing may have to be removed depending on weight
 and space in my one checked bag.  
Footwear remains as shown, I can't do less! 
Cole Haan black leather Chelsea boots, grey nubuck sneakers and black strappy 
sandals . . . . . . and, as always, for kicking back on board ship, my favorite pair of
made in South Africa/bought in Australia pewter sandals which have traveled the world!
All are broken in and comfy for walking in cities, along beaches, over desert sands,
across tropical islands, all the the many different places we'll be visiting.

    1. Far too much I know - but I do like to have plenty to choose from when shipboard!

  2. Wow. I'm curious to see your photos. I bet you'll be visiting some fabulous places.

    1. Yes several new to me places and some old ones which it will be great to see again, such as Lisbon and Cadiz.

  3. This looks like a perfect wardrobe for your trip! Have a wonderful, safe trip!

  4. It will be quite an achievement if you get all of those clothes into one checked bag. Safe travels Mary and Bob and have a good trip.

    1. I did. . . . . plus I even added another pair of linen trousers and a rust colored sweater! Of course I can't lift the suitcase but
      thankfully Bob's arms/shoulders are still strong and pain-free!
      Thanks for the good wishes dear friend - I'll wave to you early Friday morning as we fly over to Heathrow.

  5. Love seeing your wardrobe. Everything looks so well coordinated. Very nice. It always fascinates me to see how little or how much people travel with. At the end of a trip I always say next time I am packing less. What a challenge.


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
