Roadtrippin’

20120628-101024.jpg

I don’t have a real outfit post today because I spent all of yesterday in the car going from my home in Indianapolis all the way to my in-laws’ in Greenville, SC. Over 500 miles. It’s far. By the time we got here and had dinner, there was no light left for good pictures.

But I did take this quick photo in the best room of the in-laws’ house: the Beatles room. Yes, really. It’s fantastic. I thought the vintage photo effect would add some extra ambiance, although I wish I had been wearing something a little more 60s-ish.

This skirt is the best road trip garment ever because it’s made of this soft, stretchy material that doesn’t wrinkle, isn’t clingy, and doesn’t dig into my waist and make me have to pee even more than normal.

Stay tuned for more vacation posts the rest of the week! (with more pictures next time, I promise)

Meet Me in Saint Louis

As I mentioned in my last post, I was in the St. Louis/western Illinois region over the weekend. Without further ado, here are some pics from the roadtrip (including outfits, of course).

These are all from Saturday afternoon on Delmar Blvd, a fun shopping and dining area, and home to the St. Louis “Walk of Fame.” I took pictures of some of the stars, including Miles Davis. The statue is of Chuck Berry. And since it was incredibly hot, we stopped for beverages at Fitz’s, where they bottle their own soda pop on site.20120618-082126.jpg

This was my Saturday outfit. There were no plans ahead of time, so I had no idea what I needed to pack. Luckily this worked out, at least in my opinion. Other family members remarked, “Wow, you’re dressed up” and “You know, this is not a fashion show.” To which I replied: “My life is a fashion show.” So there.

Sunday’s outfit had to withstand the ride home. I’m calling this one a success, too, considering these pictures were taken literally right after stepping out of 5 hours in the car. After discovering how comfortable and unwrinkled I was, I got myself a self-congratulatory sandwich…
