Hi all! Sorry I've been M.I.A.....I've been trying to get in the swing of things, plus taking care of some personal things that have come up....I think I'm just plain tired. This work week feels like it's been the longest ever---and it's only Thursday! I can only pray today flies by....
Man, this Fifi Lapin is killing me.... Why can't I look this good when I travel? Can we talk about an issue that has been nagging at me ever since my trip???!!!
Why can't I pack a decent set of travel clothes??? You'd think by now I would have (somewhat) perfected the perfect suitcase full of clothing...but NO!!! This was surely not the case w/ trip to London. I cannot tell you how incredibly peeved I was throughout the whole darn time.
So I think I've got the actual-travel-day/on-the-airplane clothes down pat! I know I should wear something comfortable yet presentable. Check! ....I did one thing right!
BUT when it came to all the rest of the days... well, I think I may have had 2-3 outfits that I actually found presentable. I always feel I pack colors that would work w/ all the other pieces.... This time I did a navy, black, grey, khakis and you'd think there would be no problem w. those colors blending together..... But alas! I did find problems... Maybe I just get sick of seeing the same clothes...It's not like when you're home and you have a whole closet full of things to choose from, which in some cases turn out to be a problem as well. But back to my current problem.
The biggest problems lie w/ the shoes. OK....If someone can invent a chic pair of comfortable ( I mean shoes you can wear for 12 hours-kind-of-comfort!) I'll gladly pay a million dollars for them. All the flats I thought were comfortable didn't make the cut when I was putting in 12-13 hour days of sightseeing. Thank god for my Havaianas because I'd have to break those out by the end of the day because my feet were burning.
Anyway, I feel traumatized by the whole travel wardrobe... Does anyone else get what I'm talking about here???
