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.

Lady Pack

That there’s a silk scarf from mom, the St. James tee, a J. Crew fluorescent pink shirt, a carpet bag from Morocco (roller bag not pictured), a bikini from H&M, a backpack from Daddy-0, an eyeshadow palette from Givenchy, a bow belt from Talbots, a tanktop from Madewell, a old-tee from Mom, a shirt with chiffon sleeves from Madewell, a jean jacket from Urban, (and we’re going across now to) a pair of silver slides from Spain, a pair of sunnies from Buffalo Exchanges, a pair of glasses from SEE, a little bag from KATHY via TJMaxx, a dress from Rogan, a slip from Victoria’s Secret, a pair of pleather snake-print Birkenstocks, a pair of patterned calfskin booties from Anthropologie, a red jean from Zara, a pair of shorts from the highly elite brand Soffe, a highwaisted short from J. Crew, and a little sleep set from Calypso at Target.
