Last Tuesday I ordered the sandals I had debated over for months. They shipped from the U.S. and arrived really fast (except they arrived in the country on Friday so they weren’t delivered until Monday). I was so excited to get them because it has got hot, so you can imagine how disappointed I was to open the box and realize that I had ordered myself the wrong size :/ I ordered an 8.5 instead of an 8 and I have no idea how I managed that. I *think* that while I was placing my order I only was paying attention to the 8, but on the site they list it as 8 and 8H for 8 and 8.5. I assume the H threw me because I usually only see them listed as 8.5 or 8 1/2 so I ended up not catching my mistake.

Unfortunately I had to send them back which was a pain in the ass, but all things works out for the best right? Because that same day I was perusingĀ Poshmark (even though they don’t ship to Canada) and saw the original Madewell Boardwalk sandals from a couple of years ago in brown, and in my size. That was the style I really wanted, but Madewell changed up the style this year (or was it last?). I was looking for them used online but people were wanting way over the original price. The ones on Poshmark were priced well and one of my American friends offered to buy them and then ship them over here, and I would obviously pay her back. I’m so excited, and actually happy that I was dumb and ordered the wrong size of the first pair šŸ˜‰

Now on to today’s post. It is for a late June trip for 5 days to Saint Petersburg, Russia. Her taste is classic, mix and matching, and preferably from the retailers H&M, and Mango. The majority of the trip will include lots of sightseeing and one night at the theatre so a dressy option is required. Since the trip is for under a week I would originally only include 2 pairs of shoes, but since there is a dressy night I decided that a pair of heels or dressy shoes would be an appropriate addition. People in Russia tend to dress up for the theatre so having a nice dress and a pair of heels would be easy to add.

Russia in the summer is hot and humid so having some loose, lightweight, and layerable items is a good idea. A blazer works well as a light jacket, and is great for making an outfit look more put together. A sweater or sweatshirt, will be warm for travel, and in air conditioning. As for footwear, I would bring comfortable walking shoes, such as a cushioned sandals (like Birkenstocks), and a sneaker. The formula is pretty easy: 2-3 bottoms, and handful of shirts to mix and match, a dress, and two pairs of shoes. I count the theatre outfit separately because not everyone will have an itinerary that requires it.

Remember that your travel outfit will come from these pieces including your shoes, so everything else should easily pack in to a carry-on suitcase.

*Depending on where you are staying and what your tripĀ entailsĀ  you might want to consider bringing a swimsuit since it is summer.Ā
