Sam’s grandparents used to have a fun tradition of hosting “come as you are” parties where they would invite their friends to come over for a party right then and there, asking them not to change their clothing no matter what. I always thought this was a really fun idea so Sam and I decided to give it a little twist. We surprise each other with a staycation giving ourselves 5 minutes to find a dog friendly place, pack, and go. Having done this dozens of times I’ve learned to pack smart. I have a few things I always pack first. I always start with my favorite scent of the moment, a pair of sunglasses, a good book, our camera, and a versatile bra that can go under absolutely anything else I decide to pack as time runs out. It gets pretty intense and there were plenty of times when I’d find myself with the perfect outfit only to realize that I did not pack the right bra. It can be a real eye opener seeing how something as simple as a bra can really makes a difference in your overall look. I recently tried the Maidenform strapless bra and was truly surprised that after years of wearing flimsy lacy triangles I felt comfortable, very supported and didn’t find myself fidgeting with it all day. Whether you like it or not bare shoulders are the summer’s hottest little trend. If you’re looking for what to wear under all of your off the shoulder, cold shoulder, asymmetrical tops and dresses, this one is perfectly fitted for just that.
