daily outfit: the “no frills” edition.
my father is out of town for the next two weeks.
for as long as i can remember, my father has been a traveling business man.
it’s nothing new, but even after all these years, every time he leaves the city, state, country, the dynamic of our family takes a mild shift.
we wait for the phone call that he’s arrived at his planned destination, we tell him to be safe, we email to make sure he’s picked up souvenirs & we miss him… no matter the distance, no matter the length of the trip.
no matter where i’ve lived while he’s been traveling, i always think about my mom when my dad is out of town.
i call her more often, i schedule mother/daughter adventures, i happen to be in the neighborhood, etc. i know his traveling is part of their life, but still, i pay a little more attention with every year i get older & wiser.
this time around, while my father is making his way through Colombia and Brazil, i told my loving mother i’d stay at their house a couple nights.
last night, i did just that—a mid-week sleepover of sorts.
& while it’s all fun & games, this also means packing up some clothes in the the most simple way possible.
hence, today’s outfit.
no frills, no fuss…& i’m totally okay with it.
