Seriously, I can’t believe it’s Friday already. In the craziness that was this week it seemed to go by so quickly. And by craziness I’m talking about all the insane news shit we are being bombarded with at a scary rapid rate. This week has been jam-packed with all kinds of face palm worthy moments. I hope you are all making it through okay.

Friday’s are generally an outfit post day to go with the week’s packing list…..unless I switch things up just to mess with you guys ;) But this week I am sticking with the regular schedule because I said I would have this post done for the end of January – beginning of February. These are 24 outfits that come from the pieces of the What to Pack for Phoenix, Arizona 10 days list from Wednesday. A quick summary of the post is that it is a March trip to watch their favourite sports team The Seattle Mariners (which is what the colour palette is based on), decent coverage for sun sensitivity is necessary, flats preferred, and a generally casual trip involving watching games, dinners, and hanging with friends.

The colour palette was a little hard to accommodate because the green is a tough one to match perfectly, and it’s hard to incorporate silver without involving sequins or vegas worthy bodycon dresses ;) So I hope that I was able to pull together and do your vision justice. Thanks for the request.

Have a good weekend everyone.

It’s Wednesday and I’m still sick. I know I keep mentioning it but I feel like ass and I will stop complaining about that when I get better ;) I have had an influx of requests over the last two months and I am trying to catch up on as many as I can. Sometimes the requests are pretty basic with a general idea of what to pack, other times people include their style and clothing preferences to guide me. This request is for quite a niche market, it is for 10 days in Phoenix, Arizona in March (before it gets insanely hot) for a woman who needs some sun coverage because of sensitivities and prefers flats. The gist behind the colour theme is to go with her favourite team the Seattle Mariners’ (who are the reason for the trip) with the colours of northwest green, navy, white, and silver. The trip revolves around watching games, dinners, and just a general fun time hanging out with friends.

I tried my best to pull these colours together in a way that wasn’t too over the top head to toe. Phoenix in March has an average temperature of the mid to high 20’s °C (75-82°F) and lows of 11-13°C (51-55°F) and this list should cover that mostly. If the forecast leans towards more lows you may want to trade some pieces in for longer sleeves and/or more sweaters and a heavier scarf. But on average this list should work well. Outfit options will be in the next post.

I hope I was able to do your request justice and that you have a great time!

*the striped dress is knee length which may not work during the day with the sun sensitivities but it would work in the evening with is why I included it as an option.

Another week down and it felt like it passed and was very unproductive. My firsty first illness in a while took me down hard and things seemed to fall to the wayside this week. Today I have no voice which I guess the kids are rejoicing in but it’s frustrating not being able to talk loud if need be. I have two massive piles of laundry on either side of me right now waiting to be folded. I hate folding laundry although I would rather do that than clean a bathroom (anyone want trade?). I don’t even want to get in to the rest of the place. It’s amazing how quick things go downhill when you aren’t consistently maintaining them. And to top it off I can’t take a lot of medicines because of weird reactions/side effects like hyperactivity at night, but drowsiness during the day, jumpy legs, and just overall sketchiness, so I have to take children’s cough medicine to lessen the effects even though it is much less potent. Here’s to a healthier week.

My package from Mango arrived late last week and I am really happy with all the pieces. The cropped jeans are actually cropped on my 5’3″ frame without needing any other shortening (the aren’t as cropped looking as they are on the model but they don’t look like I am trying on kids pants). There is zero snow on the ground at the moment which is so unusual for us but I have taken advantage of that and wearing a lot of seasonally inappropriate clothes as my rebellion against winter ;) I’m sure it’s going to come back and hit us full force in no time but I am enjoying it while I can. Currently it is windy and raining and is more reminiscent of October weather than January.

I’m on a British drama show kick at the moment. Do you have any good ones that can recommend?

The cold that I thought I was fighting off earlier in the week decided to hit me full force on Thursday with a fever and coughing. I have been an epic cougher since I was a child. I have even had to get off buses way before my stop because I am coughing so bad that it gets super embarrassing and people think I have some contagious disease(true story, multiple occasions). So I try to stay out of public as much as possible during the worst of it. I’m glad there isn’t a heck of a lot on my plate Thursday and Friday.

I did manage to finish this post though which is good. These are the outfit options to my What to Pack for Venice, Italy 3 week list. I put together 20 outfits from the pieces but there is room to make many more depending on the weather and activities. I know I always say it, but I think this list may be one of my favourites. I would love to have every piece in my wardrobe.

And with that I am going to sign off in hopes that the kids will go to bed and I can get some sleep. Have a great weekend guys!

Often when I do packing posts they are for single locations, but occasionally I get requests for several cities (many times within the same country). So I have to do a little research on averages, highs, and lows of temperatures as well as precipitation. I also take in to account the types of activities that each city offers, as well as some dos and don’ts of fashion (some places are much more conservative, while others quite laid back). These are the types of things that affect any clothing choices I may make, even if it’s just a suggested sample wardrobe.

While this list says What to Pack for Venice, Italy this trip is also encompassing Florence, Rome, Taormina Sicily, Sorrento, and Capri. I noted that the average temperatures for these locations are all within a closer range so the packing options will be easier. This trip is planned for May and will cover all these cities over a 2 1/2 week span. As for weather this time of year is considered prime for many because you have not hit full tourist season, the flowers are in full bloom, it is not yet too hot like mid summer. The average is 19°C with a high of the mid 20°C’s and a low of 13°C.

Mornings can leans towards cool so a light scarf, and jacket will suffice, as well as for evenings. Dark, slim jeans are always a good option, with light blouses, or long sleeves. I included a couple of dresses (but a skirt would work too), the blazer is very versatile because it can also be tied at the waist to look like a cardigan (the retail photos show you how you can wear it). For footwear I suggest sticking to flats because of the cobblestone streets, stairs, and the amount of walking that you will probably be doing. A running shoe and Chelsea boot give some good walking shoe options as well as for cooler temperatures. The mule is a dressier option but also works well when the day warms up, but a sandal or ballet flat would also be a good choice.

Outfit Options will be in the next post.

What is your perfect temperature? Mine is 17°C.
