What Charlotte (the 70’s model) took!!
Two weeks ago we commenced on a three week series to show a travel capsule of some suggested items to wear and pack for a vacation. The 50’s age group capsule was here, and the 60’s age group capsule was here.
Now I get to present what we packed for Charlotte’s 2.5 week vacation. Background info: Mom embarked on a Panama Canal Cruise. We planned some great outfits, but of course, mom changed it up somewhat when she packed. I’ll explain a little of both the scenarios.
Shoes: Again we started with shoes because they they are the foundation of the outfit when traveling. Mom had 3 pairs: a pair of Keds for walking (which ended up splitting so she had to buy a new pair in port—the new ones are these white ones pictured), a dressier shoe (I picked purple flats, but she took the black) and a casual sandal.
Bottoms: Mom did not want to take a skirt, since she feels the need to always wear hosiery with a skirt and the tropics of course are too hot for that. We tried to plan that each piece would be worn at least 3 times–but I think she snuck in more pants at the end (she claims she doesn’t remember…ha ha)
Tops & Jackets: Since mom would be in the tropics, she didn’t really need a jacket, but we had her take a cardigan for the plane trip (same one, both ways). Picking out tops was the easy part, as the selection from mom’s closet is endless. I think she ended up taking more shirts at the end ( I always do)!
Accessories: For this trip, Charlotte had 1 scarf (large-not pictured here, but you’ve seen it in the posts), 1 bathing suit, and assorted jewelry. She too loves to purchase items for souvenirs (you realize, the nut doesn’t fall far from the tree). She also took a small purse for the dinners, and her regular purse for everyday.
Thanks again for supporting my new endeavor! This week I’ll style a print top for our travel trip! To see the tunic styled for travel wear start here, and here’s the start of the scarf worn for the trips.
