What. A. Day.

First off, our internet was down until the late afternoon. Then, DH lost some money -- I mean he physically lost cash from his pocket!! Fortunately, not too much, but you can imagine how he was feeling. We had the phone/ internet guys in the house. The plumber (for another problem). The car was supposed to go in to get fixed but something went wrong with the part so DH went all the way out there for nothing.

Oh...and all this time, we were packing for a trip. A BIG trip. I leave tomorrow morning!

I am on my way to Israel for 12 days. En route, I am staying a day with my mother. So all in all, I will be gone for two weeks. In weather conditions that may vary from 6C to 32C. Yikes!

I do have laundry options but won't want to do more than once.

For the most part, it should be spring-like weather in Israel. My main concern here is that the leather jacket is going to be too warm. I wonder if I should be bringing my white denim jacket or a light blazer instead. Thoughts?

ETA: I did throw a light denim jacket (blue) into the mix. But might need more than one topper.

My colour scheme is ink/navy; white; light grey/ with hits of light blue, blush, and orchid.

1-3 Travel outfit (train for 4 hours tomorrow). R&B Dre Jeans, Cashmere-cotton sweater, booties, leather jacket, scarf, trench. (We still have several feet of snow here, although it is melting).

4-5 Air travel outfit -- crepe track pants, silk/cotton sweater, trench, tote.

6 One version of light grey and white. Apart from the fact that these "sized up" jeans are now my size after my 3 months without enough exercise, I like it. Oh well. Time to get moving again.

I actually have a few options for this grey-white ensemble but didn't get pictures of them all. I am bringing my grey linen pants for warmer temps.

7-8 Two versions of ink-out. See the fun shoes in 7? They are golf shoes by Biion. Plastic...for rain. I'm not actually bringing them on the trip. I got them for $20 to try out -- super fun!

9-13 Some other possible combos for the trip.

14 -- We'll be hiking at least one day. How I managed to fit into my regular size shorts I don't know, but I got them done up. Phew!!

Another question: I have a lot of knitwear (relatively) -- I am wondering if I need more shirts and fewer knits.
