Words Wednesdays: Playing Dress Up

I feel like Kate Spade really nailed it with this one. There is something so fun about playing "dress up" even as an adult. As I've been packing for the next two weeks I have been playing a lot of dress up. I'm trying maximize my wardrobe options while bringing as little as possible. Here is a peek at a few ways I styled this Shakuhachi dress.

And let's be serious. Shoes take up a lot of space so styling a dress with different shoes isn't that practical unless they are the only shoes you take. And I am really, really, really trying to limit myself to four pairs of shoes. (Although I'm taking a golf travel bag, aka a black hole of packing possibilities, so I don't make any promises).

Beyond the shoes, with a few small easy-to-pack accessories this dress becomes three nights worth of outfits. Here's hoping I don't spill wine all over it the first night!
