The Case for the Occasional Wardrobe Entry

Today: no makeup, schlumpy sweatpants, and an old t-shirt, 'cause there's nothing glam about cleaning the apartment before I go.

Tomorrow: I leave for Manila (via Guam) wearing the following ensemble:

Outfit:
- black suit blazer
- black Old Navy boot-cut trousers
- blue-and-orange Old Navy T-shirt with long sleeves
- white low-cut socks
- blue-and-silver Reebok running sneakers
- extra polo shirt (in carry-on luggage)

Luggage:
- Carry-on: khaki-colored Dockers tote made from Tumi-inspired fabric, with lots of room for my visa documents, books, extra shirt, and CD player
- Check-in suitcase: burgundy Samsonite hard-shell packed with clothes, toiletries, and an entire box of Hawaiian Host macadamia nuts (among other gifts for the folks back home). Also in the suitcase: my Stila 8-pan (because I can't live without neutral shadow, but I ain't toting that bad boy with me on the plane), Olay Daily Facials Express (again, too lazy to bring my actual face wash), Chanel Chance EDT (the better to sniff all the other fragrances at the duty free) and both of my Aveeno calming moisturizers.
-Other check-in luggage: box full of old clothes, for my relatives back home

Hair: down (no ponytail) but texturized with Garnier Fructis Surf Hair texture cream

Makeup:
- L'Oreal True Match powder in W6 Sun Beige
- L"Oreal HIP eyeshadow in Mischief
- Maybelline Sky High Curves mascara in black
- BareMinerals Face Color in Warmth
- Smith's Rosebud Salve (because there's nothing more annoying on a long flight than disappearing lip color)
- In the carry-on: all of the above, except for the BareMinerals (I'n not going to let that stuff spill all over me), which was replaced by the L'Oreal Feel Naturale blush in Mocha Rose. Also: L'Oreal HIP lip gloss in Gallant; MAC eyeshadow in Crystal; some eyeliner (I haven't decided yet) and some lipstick (ditto), plus Dove Cleansing Pillows and L'Occitane Verbena Shea Butter.

As I've mentioned before, however, I can't guarantee that I will be posting out of the country, but if I can, I will let you know. I do expect to be back by the 4th of July, though, so until then... andiamo!
