As regular readers know, I’m heading to Houston, TX at the end of December to attend my daughters wedding.  Of course, besides all the obvious excitement and the thought of hitting up the stores, my thoughts of course have gone to what to put in my suitcase.  Since we’re in Summer here and I’m heading to Winter, I’m now contemplating what to pack in the suitcase.  Since I’ll be meeting my future son-in-law, his family and my daughters friends and acquaintances for the first time, I’m of course wanting to make a good impression.
My biggest problem with travelling to a Winter climate is that you in fact can’t take as many clothes as you would when travelling into Summer due to the sheer weight of Winter clothing.
Here’s where I’m asking for some suggestions – those who know my wardrobe, please make some suggestions of outfit possibilities I may have overlooked over the past season where I can mix and match effectively.
I’m looking forward to your suggestions.
On the subject of wedding, I prowled around the Dress Barn site earlier and quite liked these dresses – whats your thoughts?
I think I’m most keen on the charcoal one above  …
The wedding details are as follows
The ceremony is taking place at 16:00 on the patio of the Country Club and is followed by dinner in the Country Club.
Of course if I choose to wear any of the dresses, I’ll need to wear some sort of pashmina/blazer/jacket … but
I’m just so unsure of what to wear!!
Let me know your thoughts folks … share share share … suggest suggest suggest 🙂

    Wendy, the charcoal dress is gorgeous, I also love the cream lace dress at the bottom.
    Probably I’d wear a cropped blazer with it – silk or velvet (type). You could check on Monsoon or Ann Taylor.
    What temperatures can you expect? Have you thought about a hat or maybe a fascinator?
    Can’t wait to see your final outfit!
