One of the tips that Kendi gave for taking the 30 for 30 (via Kendi Everyday ) is to pretend you are packing for a 30-day trip. At first, I took this literally and opened a suitcase in which to actually pack all of my items, but Cooper took the opportunity to jump inside the suitcase for a long nap. Then I just felt bad about kicking him out, so I dropped it.
However, this weekend I actually took a trip for a girls’ weekend in Dallas, and I must say it was quite easy to pack! One pair of shoes, a cardigan, a pair of pants, and that’s about it. As they say at McDonald’s, “I’m lovin’ it.”
After we arrived in Dallas -- where there was still a decent amount of snow on the ground -- Marlena, Afsan, and I played fashion show in Afsan’s closet and had fun styling each other. Afsan and I agreed that we should have our own TV show, where she does the shopping and I try my hand at styling. Here’s how that conversation went:
Afsan: We can make the show dramatic by fighting with each other.
Jenn: Yeah. I can yell at you for buying stupid things that I can’t work with.
Afsan: And I can yell at you for not putting outfits together correctly and tell you that you should be able to put anything together.
Marlena: That sounds crazier than Jerry Springer.
After the TV idea faded, we held a faux photo shoot:
[It's 2011, and the iPhone still baffles me.
Also, Afsan looks like this all the time.]
[I am totally about to laugh.]
[I didn't get the memo to wear boots on this trip.]
[My $7 suede heels from Target are not great snow shoes.]
[Love the colors. Marlena looks like a rainbow.]
