Happy Wednesday my lovelies! I have a BIG weekly for you this week, there were so many pattern releases and gorgeous makes that I just couldn’t edit it down. I’m gearing up to go on a little vacay next week so I have been planning out my packing list! It’s very handy to be able to shop your own closet by flipping back through all your makes on your blog. I love planning little capsule wardrobes like this and choosing which me-mades to travel with. My favorite Blackwood will feature prominently, but I am also bringing many summer sundresses for hotter days. Packing has caused me to realize I need more shorts that aren’t RTW, so I’ll be rectifying that when I return!
