Packing the Pretties

Hello from North Carolina, I left Charlotte (brother-in-law got married in Asheville) took a train to Durham to see my girlfriend Geni who is an amazing senior photographer who I met years ago on Twitter and we’ve hung out so many times since! Then, I’ll be on a short flight to DC to see one of my besties, Michelle who has a great cooking blog and I’ll be able to taste test in person – everything is good from her kitchen!

While I was packing, I looked at my clothes and wondered why my outfits look coordinated! I realize I take more photos when I’m on vacation because I take the time to plan what to wear and I think of the scenery. Unless I’m going home, then I know it’s just casual because it’s my R&R time.

I also noticed that sometimes my undies look nice too –

Just like my closet, I have to go through my underwear drawer, it’s stuffed to the brim! I have so many bralettes and bras that I never wear but think maybe I’ll wear that not so awesome bra under a sweater – but really, I still wear the same ones, or rather the ones I need to replace. sent me a few picks and I just about died when I saw the back of the lace racerback bras – they fasten in the front which let’s be real – all bras should fasten in the front.

Remember when you first learned how to put on a bra? I don’t know about you but I had to  clasp it in the front and spin it around LOL! I’m pretty sure when I started wearing one I didn’t actually need one yet, either. Haha!

How cute are these Kate Spade New York, wash and wear bags?


These pretty goodies arrived in a darling box, so cheeky! They are really comfortable too which is a must – and it finally motivated me to get rid of about 6 bras that I hadn’t touched for years and about 5 bralettes too! The black bralette I got in size medium and I’m regularly a small and the sizing is perfect and comfortable. I like that the sides are longer for those lower cut tanks.

It’s also fun when I arrive to my destination when I take out my belongings and hang them up – I can see my pretty outfits and organization bags. It just makes traveling even more fun!
