OOTD 6.8.11 {hazy blue, plucked fruit & donuts} + Packing

BR Notched Cropped Cardigan in Hazy Blue, ON tank, Paige denim, Anthropologie Plucked Fruit Necklace, Modalu London Bristol/Pippa Medium Grab in Shark, Stuart Weitzman Donuts in Tmoro Vecchio Napa

I've been carrying my Shark Bristol/Pippa nearly every day since I got it. Gray is such a great color for a handbag, I've realized. Today I am really liking it with the hazy blue of this BR cardi and my peachy plucked fruit necklace.

My Stuart Weitzman "Donuts" arrived the day before yesterday and they are so insanely, fabulously comfortable that I am wearing them today despite temps in the 50s and light rain. I think they will be wonderful for walking around Italy this Summer. (I found them TTS - this is my usual 8 1/2.)

Speaking of Italy. I am beginning to get a little bit anxious about my planning/packing progress. We are nearing the end of the school year in this part of the country, and along with that you have all types of events, recitals, parties... I absolutely love participating in my children's classes as much as possible... and I also have responsibilities with our business. On that note, my blog postings may be a little sparse... if you don't hear too much from me over the next few weeks, I am just running around trying to get/keep it all together.

Here are my packing piles so far:

Not much so far for the children and the mess on the far right is mine... several cotton tanks and one black swimsuit.

That obviously won't do for a month of travel ranging from Denmark (city + countryside) to Italy (city + coast) to Georgia to the beach in Florida. (Also, I have to plan my Prada Outlet + The Mall in Reggello Shopping Strategy.) It is a fun project but it's going to take up some time.

I will post on those neutral lipsticks and try to get some updates on packing on the blog too. I've also downloaded a mobile blogging app so hopefully - if I can figure it out - will be able to update from the road! Of course, I will have lots of pictures and some reviews when we get back.

I hope everyone is in the middle of a great week.



  1. The shark is looking good.can't wait to receive mine. I remember your packing piles from another trip. Such a good idea :)

  2. The shark looks lovely, and I have the gold/tan donuts and LOVE them. They are so very comfortable and pretty. I wore them in Mexico in super heat/humidity, and nary a blister.

  3. NIce bag!
    I love you in the soft blue cardigan!

  4. I'm now living vicariously through your Pippa, since mine likely won't arrive until my infant son enters graduate school. So gorgeous, especially paired with that blue cardi.

    I like those Donuts too, and I'm not always the biggest gladiator fan. Those manage to be demure and look perfectly comfy for travel too.

  5. I'm so glad the gladiator 'trend' stuck around, I still think it's a great look. I've been haunted by these donuts for a while now, I just might have to track a pair down.

  6. Love those sandals! I am SW's biggest fan.

  7. love the shoes------very nice;) must check them out. have a wonderful trip, i look forward to your pic's and posts:) don't forget to pack the 'ol "dressy jersey dress" (j crew two years ago) as a staple!!!! hahaha:)

  8. Love your outfit! :] Especially your cardigan. I love the color! It looks great with your Pippa! Can't wait to receive mine. I finally pre-ordered mine a week or two ago and isn't supposed to arrive until November. *sigh* Oh, well! It's worth the wait. :]

    Have fun on your trip!
