Week two of August was spent in Portland, OR (Check out my posts on Portland Restaurants!) and so it turned out to be rather fortuitous that most of my clothes were dresses. Dresses take up much less space than pants and shirts. I was able to pack all my meeting clothes, work out clothes, and other necessities for a week-long trip in a carry-on and back pack! The night before my flight out to Portland, I stopped by Kohl’s to try to pick out some slacks and maybe look at the dresses to find some that were meeting appropriate and in my size. I’ve never really owned many dresses and have been looking for an excuse to purchase a few that would be appropriate to wear in different situations. I did find a couple of dresses and made it easily through the meeting and looked pretty good!
