Outwardly calm

all items remix'd
tank&jeans: Gap
tee: Proenza Schouler for Target
scarf&booties: Old Navy
sunnies: Dsquared

I am still a little behind on outfit photos. This is what I wore on Monday, getting ready for my trip.

How do you pack for 7 weeks?
All yoga clothes go on one side of the suitcase. I didn't pack my favorites because I figure they will pretty much be finished at the end of the trip.

The rest of the stuff on the other. India is pretty conservative (i.e. no knees or shoulders) and the temperature during the day is going to be 90 degrees or higher where I am (but dry so that helps somewhat) so my typical summer attire of tanks and shorts isn't appropriate. I got some loose tees, blouses, capris and long skirts to get me by and I'm sure I will buy some local clothes while I am there.

Add shoes, toiletries and some random extras and the suitcase is almost full. I haven't even packed up any of my "electronics," such as my laptop, camera, phone and Ipod and their respective chargers. Most of that stuff will come with me on my carry-on. I hope it all fits!

I love the color combo in your outfit!

I am such a pack rat that there's no way I'd only have one suitcase. I think you packed very well and you'll be fine. Especially if your electronics will be carry-ons.

I like the bright blue and red together.

I am looking forward to hearing about your India trip. You're going to have an amazing adventure!

I really, really love this outfit. The tee and bright blue scarf are PERFECT together. And yipes, I don't even know how you managed to fit 7 weeks into one suitcase!

That top and scarf together are insanely perfect together.

7 weeks worth of packing - oh my! I pack a bag that looks like that for a three day stay somewhere. XD

One thing that I absolutely LOVE about your outfit posts are the amount of color you incorporate. Everytime I read one of your posts they just make me smile cause there's a brightness in all your photos.

I really love the colors and casual vibe of this outfit.

Good luck packing! It seems like you've done a great job. I always stress about it and end up bringing too much.
