The Stylish Irish

i am on the hunt for the perfect (faux) leather jacket :)
I need a big ol' scarf!
I have dreamed of this day for 25 years.
A quarter of a century's worth of longing, wishing, hoping
6 months of planning, strategizing, researching
... and yet I stand before my closet and exclaim...
"I have nothing to wear!"


...enter Pinterest.

Today is packing day and slightly overwhelmed is an understatement. I've been so busy picking out bed&breakfasts, researching historical sights, and memorizing menus of local pubs, I haven't given my wardrobe much thought. Now, I am fully aware that I am limited to roughly 25lbs of luggage if Dan and I are going to try and squeeze into one suitcase, so the trick will be picking items I can easily wear several times.
Or we could always get to know the interior of a quaint Irish laundromat!

Obviously, the added pressure of knowing each day will be cataloged for all eternity doesn't help, but I've been warned that the only things I'll actually be wearing are as follows:

I would so wear these rain boot liners... if I had rain boots and lived somewhere cold, but those are just minor details.  I need a casual, hooded rain coat. This is SO tempting, and still available in my size....will think on it today. $50.

Bubble Umbrella 

... although I'll probably look more like:

well, so be it! 

I cannot believe this is already happening... time has flown! 
And it's hard to believe it's been a year since we were getting ready for our last adventure abroad!

Can't wait to see you all again soon and tell of our adventures!

Have a very happy St. Patty's Day friends!!
*Cheers!*
