I love packing for trips. I always get overwhelmed right before I have a great, big epiphany that steers me in the right style direction. Last Friday, Carrie Underwood's "Jesus Take the Wheel" played in my head as I plopped down on my bed, feeling defeated at the sight of my entire closet on my bedroom floor (yes, the Lord can solve even the most trivial fashion emergencies). The thing is, getting out of town and living a different life for a few days makes me feel like a whole different person. I act differently, sleep differently, and even dress differently. Taking fashion risks is just easier to do when surrounded by strangers. That said, I didn't necessarily veer from the norm on my trip last weekend, but I did pay close attention to how I accessorized the desert-hued sheer fabrics that I took to Palm Springs. Heavy metals, Mother Nature-inspired designs, and complementary sunset colors comprised my travel jewelry collection. Do you find yourself making different style choices when you travel or am I just a weirdo?
