My children's outfits are sorted for our next trip.  Elliott loves my packing piles.  Max does too, but when I snapped this picture he stayed graciously off to the side, while Ell plops himself in the middle of everything.  Love how he has his foot tucked in between two of my eleven year old's blouses.


I'm still in process, but packing for myself is about decided.  I started with a  shoe line-up:

 LK Bennett Maddox, Chanel ballerines, Banana Republic Ashley, Stuart Weitzman Minx, Soludos for J Crew, Tory Burch Miller

Then for the clothes... I started with a scarf again - my newest printed silk - and added two more big, light, and gauzy ones.

scarves by Hermes, H&M, Target

I then added two cardigans - bright green and camel - and a patterned jacket (I'll wear a plain black blazer on the way).

With the bright printed scarf and the colorful jacket, I'm keeping everything else very neutral - white, cream, navy, black.  I'll pair everything with dark denim or black cropped pants.  Also bringing along a couple of casual dresses (the Gap polka-dot tie waist shirtdress and a navy striped one from Loft),  and a DvF wrap.

Definitely still in process.  Haven't tried to put anything in suitcases yet.  Also still without a hotel for a couple of nights before we fly Paris-Copenhagen and working on our itinerary... but it's coming together.

I usually tweet here and there while we're traveling and as of yesterday I'm back on Instagram so I'll likely use that too.  I'm at seaandtea on both.



  1. I like how you pack?
    It is so much more thorough than my habit.
    Funny too about your cats getting into the act. Ours climb right on top and inside our cases!

  2. Yay-so glad you joined Instagram (request sent)! I only recently started using it and love it. Have a great trip & thanks again for your blog.

  3. gosh you are so organized! PS found your blog while google-ing "Hpw fast is Zara shipping" lol totally random. but love you blog girl!

  4. You're such a good packer. The scarves are beautiful. The shoe lineup is a good idea, too.
