Thank you for all the input!
Suntiger, thanks! Nope, not going to the Wallops Island., though I'd love to see it one day! Turns out mu destination is not a small town at all, more on the medium side, I had a completely wrong idea about it.
Elpagal, I hear you. And I think you are right regarding the floor grates.
Runcarla, thanks! It is a trip well I will have more responsibilities than usual, as I am one of the organizers of the event.
Thank you, Brooklyn! Agreed with you on difficulties on capsules for transitional weather.
ChristelJ, I hope you find your medium-weight jacket.
Firecracker, since the tour is right after the first day program with no time to change, I was going to wear the navy booties. I asked one of the hosts and they assured me low heels should be fine. However, thinking now, I think I will bring a pair of flat oxfords with me, just in case.
Rachylou, I would love to learn more about your 4-piece suit. What are all the pices?
Sal, you are absolutely right, I am adding a few more back-up pieces, described at the end of the post.
Beth Ann, welcome back! So nice to see you here. Hope to see some of your mixed-metal looks.
Kkards, couldn't agree more. It is often simple pieces like that. I use the packing tubes for the long trips to Europe when I am bringing tons of stuff, but for some reason it never occurred to me to do it for the domestic trips. Next time I fly, I will definitely use them.
Thank you very much, Cardiff girl.
Thank you, Angie! I have changed my mind and am adding one more pair of shoes -see below.
Based on all the input, and the fact that space is not an issue, I'll add a few more pieces: cream oxfords, blue cashmere sweater, cream silk blouse and blue knit top.
