What might have been...

Usually, when I'm packing for a trip, no matter how short that trip might be, I pack by outfit. And to ensure that every outfit works in reality the way that I think it will work in my head, I have to try on each option as I go. And then, if I think I most likely won't be taking pictures wherever I'm heading, I do that ahead of time, too, because an outfit doesn't count if it's not blogged, you know?

(And my husband wonders why it takes me so darn long to pack for anything...)

This is one of those packed outfits, put together and photographed, that I never actually wore (yeah, I also tend to overpack, which has caused a problem or two over the years...). And now that summer is officially over, I most likely won't be wearing it this year, and, well...sad.

But there's always next year, right?

Blouse: Target
Shorts: Gap (outlet)
Shoes: Target
Bracelet: Charlotte Russe


  1. I overpack all the time! We go away for the weekend up to the lake and don't wear half of what we bring. The weather is so unpredictable, you never really know what to pack half the time.

    I do like the blue hues you have with the shirt and bracelet :) Heather

  2. Aww it's a shame you didn't get to wear it! It's really pretty!

  3. I love this! The blue looks fantastic next to the white. :)

    I am an under-packer. I NEVER ever pack enough clothes and end up wearing things over again (except undies, of course). One time, I packed for a week long visit at home and took one pair of pants and six shirts and NOTHING else. It was ridiculous.

  4. I love those shorts and I am also an overpacker- once I packed a suitcase just full of shoes!

  5. did you see my orange and blue wall post today? :)

    this is a really great outfit! i love how your silver wedges always add that shine

  6. haha, i overpack, too...but you can't have too many options! i love the tunic over the white shorts.
