I’m so excited, everyone. Today, Kenn and I are off on a vacation to warm and sunny Argentina! I have never been to South America at all before, so this is a real treat. We’re renting a lovely little apartment in the Montserrat neighborhood of Buenos Aires, and probably also taking a little trip to Uruguay, to check out Montevideo. And perhaps wine country, if there is time. Anyone ever been?
I love traveling, but haven’t left North America in about two years, so this is extra exciting. But as much as I love to travel, I really hate to pack.
This time, I thought I’d try to pack a mostly handmade wardrobe. I put together these outfits to help me decide what to bring, and it was really helpful! I made most of these clothes this year, over the Spring and Summer, and it’s great to dig them out again, especially since there are several things I never even posted about.
Above: vintage cameo brooch, lace cardigan, The Lonsdale dress, OPI nail polish in Monsooner Or Later (my favorite bright warm red), The Authentic Bars, Cafes, and Restaurants of Buenos Aires, DV by Dolce Vita Sandals
Above: Linen blouse (originally from J. Crew, I got it for $4 because the buttons were falling off), vintage sunglasses, vintage silk scarf, Kork-Ease Deborah, gingham shorts (made earlier this year)
I’ll also be bringing two beeeeautiful new dresses I just made from my upcoming Spring patterns. But I can’t show those to you yet, unfortunately. You’ll just have to keep an eye on my vacation photos when I get back!
PS: The blog will still be going strong while I’m gone. Caitlin and I have queued up some fun posts.
