Since I know how many of us enjoy travel posts, I thought I'd share my recent one.

I just got back from a week in Toronto, which was mainly meetings and a conference, with minimal time off for shopping (more on that, later), and YLF mini-meet ups. I posted about the challenges of packing for this in El Cee's challenge thread, but will repeat what I said here as I'm sure most of you didn't see that.

This week needs a ton of
changes of clothes, and always throws me a curve ball. One year the
weather did something totally not forecast and was unseasonably hot.
One year I sprained my ankle and had to rethink my outfits to go with
flats and a nice bandage. One year I got a blister from too much
walking on day 0 and that put a pair of good (dressy) shoes out of the
running. That kind of thing. Not to mention you never know about AC!
So my challenge was to put together a great capsule for this.

I was really pleased with how this all turned out. I was also really pleased to have thought it all through before I left, and had it all in order in my stylebook app... things were SO busy, to have to think about what to wear on top of everything else would have been a stress, not fun.

Got tons of compliments on my sneaks!

My bag was one from Danier, in finds, ,plus a small black crossbody for the evenings.
