Packing for the Inauguration
I’m on my way to DC for the inauguration! Okay, technically, it’s not the inauguration–it’s the swearing in. I doubt I’ll be able to see anything important, but I really wanted to be there amidst the love and excitement.
So, since I have a long bus trip ahead (yes, that’s right: bus. Pray for me.) I spent some time (read: 20 minutes. Because I procrastinate. I’m the queen of “Eh, that can wait.”) considering what to pack. I need to be comfy (10 hours on a bus), warm (31 degrees in DC), but not sloppy (“Why yes, President Obama, I am a model”). In the spirit of The Glamourai’s post about travel dressing, I also brought a few special pieces to add a little sparkle.
|1.Wool jamawar shawl
This scarf is so big and warm that it doubles as a blanket as needed. A blarf, if you will.
|2. BCBG cardigan
Looks good open or belted and the draped collar adds interest.
|3. American Apparel leggings
Black, stretchy, comfy. ‘Nuff said.
|4. Dolce Vita flat boots (Christmas present!)
No driving into Capitol Hill means lots and lots and lots of walking. Flat shoes are a must!
Side note: Nina over at Femme Rationale tagged me, but I swear, I’m so bad at this stuff. I’m working on it!
