You know you are getting old when you are sitting calmly on the bed and then get up with an intense pain in your knee. It’s like my husband who hurt his back opening a beer which I found hilarious. I’ve always had minor knee pain in my right knee, (and by always I mean since I turned 30) especially when I exercise but I did something yesterday to irritate it and had to sit with it elevated for a couple of hours. It’s not as bad as yesterday but I definitely can’t exercise for a few more days. Like I need another excuse to skip a workout. There goes my bikini body for summer goal 😉
The packing list I put together this past weekend is another Instagram request. This time for a 3 week trip to Spain and Italy in July. Since the months of July and August are the hottest months for both Spain and Italy I tried to make to list reflect that, but also include things to layer for cooler evenings, and regions.
The two sweaters are both very lightweight enough that they are very versatile, and the light jacket is cotton and adds a cool casualness. I was indecisive between the skirt and a pair of wide leg black culottes. They looked too similar to include both so I went with the skirt. It would depend on what you are more comfortable wearing (I think I am leaning towards the culottes now though since I am a pant person).
I also really like those casual jeans and headed down to my local H&M to see if they had them today but I couldn’t. I’ll check back again next week when they get new stock. I also included a scarf that is large enough to wear as bathing suit cover, shawl, and scarf. Versatility saves space. Outfit options are in this post.
What is your favourite versatile piece you have? I love my leather jacket, I wear it with everything.
