The worst part about vacation is that it eventually comes to an end and I have to get back into this thing called “real life with a job”. We had to hit the road bright and early to get back to Toronto, so a solid java was in order. Without coffee I’m usually as sweet as a cat in a shower, so in the best interest of the public safety we headed to the highly recommended Balzac’s Coffee Roasters. Not only did I transform back to a normal member of society but it was the perfect shot of java to remember the town. It’s tough to disappoint me with any coffee at 7am, but Balzac’s coffee was delicious!A little about my outfit here, which I chose for the flight back to Calgary. When I am packing for vacations, I do really put a lot of thought into what I bring. I try to pack items that can be mixed and matched to lessen the load. I should be careful with the term lessen the load, because the luggage weigh scale at the airport usually disagrees.This black skirt is the best for travelling, so good in fact, I have it in two colours. Also the skirt is amazing because it doesn’t wrinkle. If there is one thing I refuse to do on vacation it’s ironing. OK that’s actually always… but anyways. I love the side slit too, it makes it trendier than your standard maxi skirt and easier to tour around in or sit on a plane!I always travel with my nude ballet flats, they go with EVERYTHING and are the comfiest walking around shoes. My silk tank is a great travel item too since it easily makes any outfit look a bit dressier and is super versatile – also doesn’t wrinkle…high five!Accessories are important to any outfit and Stella & Dot makes great jewellery. This gold pendant necklace is probably my most worn piece of jewellry. I wear it with tees, dresses, sweaters – you name it! Speaking of sweaters, my cozy cardigan is a travel must too. Easily stuffed into a bag, keeps me warm at night and on chilly airplanes!
