A short post today due to being busier than usual.
Last night I broke my J Crew ban (again) and ordered the red Monarch scarf, which is the same print as the skirt:
I've almost bought this more times than I can remember, but I've managed to stop myself, in keeping with my promise to myself not to buy anything at full price.
Last night the scarf went on sale, so I pounced! The MAGALOG15 code is still valid for 20% off and free shipping, so it was not a bad price.
Don't think I won't be wearing it with the skirt!!
I probably would have ordered the matching sweater too, if it had been merino wool and a better price, but at $300 still it's not worth it.
The weather in Sydney has been channeling the UK: dreary rain and low skies. So, to cheer myself up, I've been wearing an abundance of colour.
Today's outfit: Black Country Road dress with J Crew mad bird sweater on top, old Lover leather jacket, old Dries van Noten boots.
I'm off to New Zealand at the weekend for a work trip - A conference at Auckland Uni, so will be pulling my hair out deciding what to pack. It's a 5 day trip, with one day back home, then off to the South Coast for 4 nights for the school holidays. The weather will probably be schizophrenic, plus I need an 'outfit' for an evening do! Eeeek!
I almost always end up over-packing for short trips. I find I need as many shoes as I would for a month-long trip. Not to mention the bucket load of slap I always carry!!
So, PACKING GURUS do you have any magic tips or tricks to help me be a minimal and organised packer?
