For today's post will deal solely with what I packed.
This time around I decided not to purchase anything new except for a few things that I had to have like mirrored sunglasses, a striped tee and a knit Grey skirt. I scored the sunglasses but was stingy to purchase a Zara striped tee (why are those things so pricey?!?!). The maxi skirt was discounted, in my size but not in the right Grey but I passed it on for new shoes, thinking that it will be there the following week. Big mistake: when I returned to the store, it was gone.
Anyway for this holiday, I packed:
- jeans ( not pictured)
- palazzo pants
- pink maxi skirt
- white eyelet tunic
- tie dye sleeveless dress shirt
- tropical print tunic
- tropical print maxi dress ( not pictured)
- cropped jacket
- camo print maxi dress
- studded tee ( not pictured)
- underwear ( white tee, tank tops, black slip...)
- bathing suit ( not pictured)
- tan and black sandals
- beaded sandals ( not pictured)
- tan wedges ( not pictured)
- blue and white weaved tote bag
Sunhat, sunglasses and a good book
Too much? I think it is just enough. The camo dress was a last minute addition. I wore it to lunch just before leaving and I did not want to change for the jeans and tie dye dress I originally planned on wearing. Reason why instead of the flats I usually wear on planes, I wore tan wedges because the dress is too long.
Being in Krabi though, I feel overdressed. Every tourist is roaming around half naked with bathing suits, sarongs, mini dresses, sheer Kaftan and short shorts. It is a bit annoying at first but I got used to it. And I am always happy to stand out and overjoyed when I see my other modest sisters. After all Krabi has a Muslim population.
Stay tuned for posts on our days in Krabi plus how I wore all the clothes I took. In the meantime, check me on Instagram.
