I thought it might be a good idea to show you one of the reasons why blogging from the road is difficult for me – I have to wear boring things.

The outfit below is a typical look from a recruiting trip (although since the background of the picture is recognizable, you can tell I wasn’t actually on a trip when I wore this).  My suit is cute, but it’s still a suit – not a whole lot you can do with it.  I tried to spice it up with some cute patterened shoes – a subtle print-mixing is about all that is appropriate professionally – and some colored jewelry.  But, really, that’s all I could do.

Now, I don’t have to wear a suit to every event I attend when I’m away, but I do often wear them, and in the interest of space saving, I wear the same one multiple times.  I also have to plan every outfit in advance in order to pack, which really inhibits my creativity (my outfits usually come together very spontaneously).  So, my suitcase ends up being a rather jumbled bunch of boring professional clothes.

This week, my goal is to wear as many blog-worthy looks as possible so that I have a reservoir for when I’m on the road.  But, if the next two weeks end up looking like a lot of the same black dress with different scarves, at least you will understand.
