I've Been Shopping For This My Whole Life.

Every time I tell someone that I am heading to Paris with my hubby, their first question is always, "what are you gong to wear?" "Oh, don't worry about that," I say, "I've been shopping for this trip my whole life." The truth is I really have. I am one of those people who has a wardrobe for the life I wish I had. Meaning, I have something that can cover every event that one could possibly attend, but the truth is most days are spent in my Lulu's, and most nights in my jammies. That doesn't mean I don't dream of wearing some of my most favorite clothes, nor does it stop me from purchasing something that is "timeless" because every so often I am able to break out of my daily uniform, and wear something that I truly love. This is what the next week will be, my personal fashion show. Or as my husband said,"You're not wearing all your gear while we are there, are you?" Yes babe, I am... and I couldn't be more excited about it! 

I figured I could create some virtual board of the dream clothes that I could be wearing on our trip, but isn't the real thing so much better? Oh, and as luck would have it, my dream wardrobe IS my wardrobe... so not only do you get to peak into my closet, but now I'm packed too! (Please excuse the wrinkly sheet ;))

The goal is to fit everything in this. Yes, it's a carry on. No, it's not clear if this is going to happen. We are there for 5 full days, so I'm hoping to bring only 3 pairs of shoes, 2 bags, and enough pieces that I can mix and match without needed a full Day, and Night outfit. Luckily, the weather looks pretty decent so hopefully I can leave the bulky winter coat at home. 

Now, on to the clothes!
