Two of a Kind

So, I’m pretty sure I’m done packing. With only 11 days to go (11!!!) before THE BEST VACATION OF ALL TIME (caps were extremely necessary), I am done shopping for outfits and accessories and other travel-related necessities. Outlet converters? Bought two. Dual voltage, folding hair dryer? Got it. An outfit for every day with an supplemental layer for warmth? You betcha. I’ve even ironed my trench coat, in a feat that proved super-neurotic, even for me. Train tickets have been purchased (to the tune of $250 for both of us, roundtrip, ouch), hotels are booked, extra memory cards for my camera are packed, credit card companies have been alerted to my travel (lest they assume fraudulent activity and shut off my card overseas like they did on a trip to London a few years ago). Boyfriend has not packed a thing or even thought about it, which boggles my mind and is sending me into a panic. Do you think I could just pack for him to make myself feel better? Or is that crazy? Don’t answer that.

Instead, let’s focus on the similarities between the following items. I’ve done this once before, this Two of a Kind post, though I’m hesitant to make it a regular feature. I already have a set schedule for Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, and I sort of like having Mondays and Wednesdays open and fair game for whatever I happen to be in the mood for. Though maybe it would be neat to have every day of the week be a particular kind of post? I don’t know. What do you guys think?

1. Oxfords / 2. Necklace / 3.  Stool / 4. Dress

I love those oxfords so much, but I know I’d never wear them. The geometric shapes in that necklace mimic the same color pattern as the shoes, though slightly more angularly (whoa, that’s a real word!). But my favorite piece of all is that yellow stool. I’ve had my eye on it for a while, but I just love how the tan sequined top of that mustard dress matches the raw wood top of the stool. That dress is just stunning, though with my pale visage, mustard yellow might be the most unflattering of color choices. Also, it’s over $4k, so it’s not happening anyway.

What are you guys up to on this rainy Wednesday?
