Packing for any trip can be intimidating. Packing for a trip to see your bestie who works for Neiman Marcus kicks things up a notch, believe you me.

Meeting up with fashion bloggers only adds to the pressure.

And throwing in Dallas, Texas, didn't help things for my non-NRA ass.

I mean I love an animal print but I'm not used to seeing a face attached to it. Maybe that's why they call it the "show me" state?

For once I sartorially envied Mr. Diabolina. All he had to do was throw a few western inspired button downs and jeans in a bag and he was done.
(H&M dress, Canal Street jewelry, Valentino heels, Vivienne Westwood clutch)
The only thing he didn't have: boots. He not so secretly coveted Texas Cowboy's incredible collection.
I love a man with a thing for shoes and bags to match ;)
Though Jean Bean's closet full of Pradas were definitely more my speed. I'll take two of everything. Including her yoga-taut gams.

For example, I knew the sky blue heels and clutch could work with the strapless dress for a night at the opera house AND the one shouldered dress for Easter brunch. In fact, I knew the shoes and purse could also work with the white, pom pom dress, H&M stripped dress and even with the green jumper. Same thing with the gold sandals.

Accessories are the key to having loads of options when traveling. The best part: they don't take up a ton of room in your suitcase. See how different the same jumper looks sans the necklace and fuschia sweater from the first picture with the bright yellow scarf?
Color can make all the difference. ;)
Prada to a gun range? Makes perfect sense when you see the protective eyewear. Tres Spring 2010.
