Getting ready for Cuba with a little help from the Cabi spring collection.
I love Cabi. When I attended my first party over a year ago I had no idea I would be such a brand advocate. If you missed my original post on Cabi you can read it here. I have made sure to have a few key pieces from every season. Truth be told I go in to each party telling myself “only a few pieces” and come out with much more than I planned. HaHa! If I could own their entire wardrobe, I seriously would. I’m not kidding.
I just attended their Spring 2017 party and I was looking for some vacation pieces as I’m going to Cuba in 2 weeks with my childhood girlfriend Donna. Another Fabulous Over 50 gal!
I’m trying to keep myself to a color palette to avoid over packing. If you follow us on FB, do you remember the picture of the trunk of our girls trip to Cape Cod last year? If you missed it, here it is. I’m going to try to do better this trip!
Anyway, I’m a long time fan of the nautical look so I was excited to see it make a comeback. I decided before the party that I wanted to go with that color palette for my trip. As I was anxiously awaiting my invite from Renee Deeter to see the collection, I was stalking Pinterest looking at all previews. Love the rich colors of navy blue, red, yellow and green and the bold patterns.
I needed a plan before I went to the party so I didn’t go overboard this time 🙂 I decided to start pulling out items for my trip and realized I needed some “basics”. So, I chose to stick primarily with buying basics this time.
I’m normally not a “hoodie” person, but loved the beachcomber hoodie. It’s a really soft heather rose yarn material. I think I’m going to live in this hoodie! I like that the cut of the hoodie is a bit oversized. It has skinnier sleeves that anchor the boxy silhouette so it won’t overwhelm your frame if you are more petite. For my trip, I will be able to wear it casual and dress it up. Here’s a few ideas on how Cabi styles the hoodie. Cute, Right?! Oh, notice the navy wedges ? Cabi now sells shoes. They are adorable. I would have bought them, but I just received 3 pairs of shoes for my trip from Sole Society.
Items I bought
Here are the items I bought for my trip. I can mix and match and dress up or down. Plus all the below items hide my trouble spots!
The tassel tank will also go with the hoodie. A note about the Hutton sand color jean…Bought a pair of these same jeans last season in army green and love, love them. They are really flattering & comfortable. This jean also comes in red this season. I’m a fan of the silhouette the floral top because its covers up all those “trouble” areas. I can also wear this with the hoodie. Their cami’s run longer in the torso and don’t creep up! Finally had to have the scarf. Those of you that know me, know I love a scarf.

So here are the pieces I’m taking on my trip. I’m trying to get this all in a carry on so I don’t have to check luggage. Not sure that is going to work. Maybe if I edited a few pairs of shoes? LOL
