Packing for Praha

I'm going to Prague on Monday. Woo! I'll be sharing pics once I get back, but I thought I'd share a bit of what I'm taking with me. I like to pack light and stay as far away from that 50 pound mark as possible. The only time I neared fifty was when I was traveling for a month. Imma be gone for about 10 days, so 50 pounds just seems like too much. Below is what I'll be taking to Prague, including a dress, cardigan, and tweed jacket that aren't pictured. Where y'all vacationing?! Whatcha wearing?! Let us know.

Jeans, tee, desert boots. This is just casual, but hella cool. I'm effing pretty hard with these striped tees Gap rolled out for Spring. They're not fitted, but not too baggy either. They're spot on. This is just something to wear while tromping around the city. My deserts boots are so damn reliable; they're good in the sun, good in the rain, just made to last. And they're comfortable -- obviously the move for a sightseeing trip. I'll be packing a couple variations of this outfit (because we'll be tromping almost erryday).


Jeans, button downs, sweater, oxfords, Kerouac. This packing process made me realize how many Ralph Lauren shirts I have. Conclusion: I have a lot. But, yea, so I can wear the button downs alone or layer them under the sweater. The weather is as variable in Prague as it is in Chicago, so I'm just tryna be prepared. The jeans  are from Gap; they fit so incredibly well and the wash is so dark, they're sure to look good on anyone. For their price, 70 bucks then whatever sale that never ends takes more moola off, they're such a good buy. I'll also be reading On the Road by Jack Kerouac while I'm away. If you've read it or you are suddenly inspired to read it, hit meh up. I'd love to chat about it.


Because I realized I only had one pair of pants: camo, Harvard (...) crewneck, oxfords, Timex. This might just be my fly-home outfit. Or my stick-in-my-carry-on-just-in-case-my-bag-gets-lost-for-six-days outfit. This Harvard maroon needs to be replaced with a University of Chicago maroon, just sayin'. 


Keep ya eyes peeled for muh pictures from Prague. Enjoy your Spring breaks. And if you don't have a break, skip school, work, whatever and take a break -- you deserve one.
