Shallow Deep by Wassily Kandinsky - Start with Art for a Travel Capsule Wardrobe

20 Sixth Graders in New York City...


Yes, she's completely insane! (if she isn't, she will be by the end of the weekend...)

What's puzzling to all of the other teachers (and the parents!) is how she makes it all look so simple, and so much FUN...

She's always bright and cheery, in both her demeanor and her wardrobe... Comfortable, but still fun and appropriate.

Cardigan – L.L.Bean; earrings – Kendra Scott; plaid shirt – L.L.Bean; backpack – Herschel Supply Co.; tee – L.L.Bean; navy pants – L.L.Bean; watch – Canton and Hall; sneakers – Clarks; suitcase – Nordstrom

Her clothes always have a touch of color that makes it easy to spot her in a crowd. In New York, that might be useful...

Pajamas – L.L.Bean; striped shirt – Lands’ End; earrings – Rosa Tomatis ; pink cardigan – J.Crew; yellow jacket – Uniqlo; print tee – Uniqlo; navy striped tee – Uniqlo; robe – L.L.Bean; knit pants – Lands’ End ; jeans – L.L.Bean; slippers – L.L.Bean; clogs – Alegria

Nobody seems to notice what a tight system she has for her travel wardrobe...

Although they're only going to be there for 2 nights (2 REALLY long nights...), she likes to have plenty of options. Accidents will happen, especially with this crowd!

She's happy to note that she could, if she had to, go out in public in her robe, or wear her slippers in place of shoes. It is New York...

love,
Janice

  1. Janice,
    Good morning ! I am loving your easy to do “ tight “ system of neutral basics and pops of color in toppers ! What a great way to pack ! I have always thought that it is the toppers that are what are remembered the most - tabletop dressing!

  2. It would be fun to be inside your head as you peruse the art and develop your heroines and their story.

  3. I'm so enjoying all the nuances of these wardrobes and their owners! Each story seems more fun that the previous one, and to fit the clothes perfectly. They must take ages to put together... but please keep them coming!

    1. It takes about 8 hours or so for an average wardrobe - depending on how obscure the colors are in the fashion markets! But I enjoy doing it, so it doesn't seem like too much of a chore, most days!
      hugs,
      Janice
