Build a Travel Capsule Wardrobe by Starting with Art: Paysage by Pablo Picasso

Build a Travel Capsule Wardrobe by Starting with Art: Paysage by Pablo Picasso

New Year's is MY Holiday...


After the madness that was Christmas, our heroine decided that she's going to go away for a long weekend for New Year's Eve and Day... So she sends her core 4 garments to be cleaned (of course she washes her own jeans!) and starts making plans.

Because it's the new year, she's feeling the desire for a pretty spring flower pink, and lovely sky blues...

So she switches up just SIX things that she packs (and decides to wear her amazing leafy-trimmed coat) and gets ready to set out for the city...

She's going out - alone - to dinner and then a concert on New Year's Eve. She plans to be in bed well before midnight...

And on New Year's Day, she has NO PLANS AT ALL. None. She's going to get up when she wakes up, she's going to order room service, and she's going to go out and walk around. See what's open, see what there is to do, wander into places when she gets hungry... Maybe shop, maybe not...

She thinks that the beginning of the year is the ideal time to listen to her voice, and to think about what the rest of the year will hold...

And she's going to listen without any distractions!

love,
Janice

  1. That is the most gorgeous Talbot's blue scarf with roses--just saying "scarf" hardly seems to do it justice. I am imagining The Heroine paging through their catalogue (or more likely browsing online, although that seems boring), and seeing the rather "down" mouth Chagall gave her suddenly turn up at the corners.

  2. Janice,
    Not my color, but oh that pink coat with the appliqué ! Love the story -- a self content personality !

  3. You have created a story that suits the painting beautifully. And what an inspiration they both are. If the pre-Christmas/New Year fuss is as frenzied in the USA as it is here in Australia and elsewhere, then this is the perfect antidote. This horrible weight of *obligation* of all kinds. Or ... not! Self-determination, quiet reflection, flaneuserie, dinner and a concert, and all in charming clothes. The variety of outfits from the travel+suitcase capsule is amazing! She could stay away for a week.

  4. I love that your heroine has another painting carrying on the same colors into a new wardrobe! My hat is off to her that she can travel with just one official shirt. I think I'd have to sneak in a long sleeved t shirt or two. - nancyo

  5. Been sitting eyes wide open behind these four walls, hoping you'd call It's just a cruel existence like there's no point hoping at all. Baby, baby, I feel crazy, up all night, all night and every day Give me something, oh, but you say nothing. What is happening to me? I don't wanna live forever, 'cause I know I'll be living in vain. And I don't wanna fit wherever. I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home.Thank you
