This is the 22 inch suitcase I purchased for the trip to Paris
Tomorrow we leave for a week's travel
to the East coast, which is always a favorite
I'm using this outing as a trial run
for the December trip.
My travel guru strongly urged using
only a carry-on bag
which will be a new experience for me.
So. In this bag - this very small bag - I have
4 sleeveless/short sleeve layering pieces:
4 long sleeve tees:
3 V-neck cashmere sweaters:
3 button-front shirts:
gray paisley(tunic length)
1 navy skirt and tights
1 charcoal wool blazer
yoga pants. cami and oversize tee
undies and socks for a week
1 pair of shoes
1 pair of slippers
assorted charging cords.
My tote bag holds:
a small crossbody purse
aspirin and other necessities
pearl studs and
simple hoops are it for jewelry.
Tomorrow I'll wear:
tall boots (tan)
the 4th scarf
and a long sleeve tee.
(which I'll leave at Naphtali's and reclaim on our return)
There is also a weather-proof jacket
which will be thrown into the back of the car.
Naphtali and Aidan have offered/agreed
to keep Charlie for us while we're gone.
This is a chance for them to see how a dog would fit into
the new school routines and
we're glad to leave him with family.
So our trip starts with an overnight in
Minneapolis, which is
always a treat.
It all works on paper so we'll see...
I went in today for a manicure
- I love the shellac -
so my nails will be lovely
- and indestructible -
for the duration.
The forecast for next week indicates mid to upper 60s
with the possibility of a 70 thrown into the mix.
Everything is set for a great time!
