This is the wardrobe that i aiming for as my hubby and i (sans kids - thank you Nan!) fly off to London, Paris and New York for 2 weeks. Yes i am a little bit excited and also a little nervous to be leaving the kids for so long....eh they will be fine!! My hubby will be working whilst i stroll the streets and well yes of course EAT and SHOP a LOT and yes i intend to record all the impressive sights and finds right here so stay tuned;)

Something strange happens to me when i pack for a holiday; i somehow think that i will magically be a lot thinner and will look a lot more glamorous when i step off the plane so i stupidly pack clothes that i would never normally be brave enough to wear normally...and then of course i never actually wear half of my packed clothes..does this happen to anyone else?? So i am determined to pack ONLY clothes that fall into the Comfy AND Chic category - cue to trusty J Crew www.jcrew.com and Isabel Marant www.isabelmarant.tm.fr/ for some inspiration....

 

This is an example of something that i would pack thinking that i could pull it off once arrived in destination country...love it...it's Isabel Marant SS12 but not likely that i could ever walk out of the hotel room with confidence..

 

Isabel Marant Pants and jacket...

 

Isabel Marant Jacket...would love to get my hands on one of her jackets

 

J Crew sailboat swimmers - although unfortunately no beaches where we are going...

 

And how cute is this J Crew pink cable sweater for girls?! Who am i kidding in reality i will probably end up buying more for the girls than myself!

 

J Crew cashmere tippi sweater - love the pink, navy and white combo

 

J Crew Peter Pan collar - very Parisian chic
