Scottish Rites


In celebration of recent events, my nuclear family is jetting to Scotland for the next week (and London for a few days). It wouldn’t surprise you to learn that before almost every trip, I draw out a packing list that looks something like this. Doing so helps me focus my vacation vision, which inevitably has turned into an homage to my ultimate semi-sportif hip-hop lady-playa who digs the rolling hills – a flat brim hat, some Adidas spandex, an incognito trench, etc.

I’ll be carrying on my dad’s old backpack, a Lands End Canvas fisherman sweater, the St. James tee, some American Apparel and J.Crew tees, my London Fog trench, my Urban Outfitters jean jacket, Cheap Monday and Zara jeans, Adidas running spandex, a Gap henley, a Lands End Canvas polka-dot button up “borrowed” from mom, my men’s department J.Crew shirt, new Converse All Stars, Bass boots, Target socks, the Avs, the Cat Eyes, and SEE glasses, a DC baseball cap from Jonas’s baseball team, mom’s scarves, books, books, books, (screw e-readers), Moleskines.

    Ooh, have fun on your trip! πŸ™‚ I love carrying Moleskines when I’m traveling — perfect for jotting down notes, numbers, doodles. πŸ™‚

    So cute! I wish I had a “vision” for packing. Have fun.

    Oh no. You forgot to pack underwear. Classic mistake.

    Cameron, those are her unmentionables. That is why she did not mention them:)

    i’m absolutely awful at packing–love this way of doing things. i’m far too lazy to actually lay out every outfit and take pictures and such,and drawing is such a smart solution. plus this array of clothing is lovely. don’t forget to break in your all stars before you go! otherwise there will be an abundance of blisters.
