I've been putting together an outfit for a New Jersey wedding that is part one of the Yosemite trip. It's a good thing I recently achieved frequent flyer preferred status, or we'd be paying a boatload in checked luggage fees! If it weren't for it being all work travel, 60 hours in airports/airplanes is really not worth it to save a couple hundred dollars.
Anyways, I picked up La Posh Style's Under the Willow Dress for its folksy charm, but it also has a side effect of making my legs look one million miles long, although, being 5'11" might contribute to that effect somewhat. I'm throwing in some cute silver bird bobby pins, the brilliant Like Lace necklace from Orange Slice (which I've been eyeing for so long), and topping it all off with a metallic wristlet for holding tchotchkes. The yellow scarf is just in case the event gets a bit chilly, and the 'ole trusty standby T-strap wedge sandals complete the outfit.
The dress packs small, which is a bonus considering how much stuff I must lug around for this trip. A wedding, wine-tasting, ocean swimming, backpacking, and city sightseeing is a wide range of activity, requiring the full spectrum of clothing.
