A chat with my readers..

Hello to anyone reading this post – regulars, readers who occasionally skim this blog and anyone who has just stumbled across it. I love writing and creating my blog posts.

The reason for this post? An apology, I have been out of action lately. I went on a wonderful and intense holiday throughout four major cities in North America (Los Angeles, San Fransisco, Las Vegas and New York City) with Contiki on the Best of Usa tour.
Following this due to some personal events that took place I needed some time out. To regather my thoughts and take some time out for myself. I am still working on that but tonight was the first night I have thought, ‘hey, let’s write a post’. So here we are. Basically sorry for the abrupt hiatus, but THANKYOU to everyone who kept reading, was very pleased to see the stats when I logged back in.

You guys are amazing! So here is what is coming, what you can expect in the weeks to come from For The Style Seeking Girl :

* Hairstyle review posts
* More Inspire Me Monday and Hint of Glamour posts
* A guest post from me (Kooklah) for another blogger
* A series of posts on women whom I know, and find strong, motivated, creative and stylish in their own way – especially in their respective careers or job positions.
* Some posts inspired and about my trip to the beautiful USA

So please be patient, so many good things on the way!

To finish, I will leave you with a style quote. To ‘like’ this blog on facebook click here

Your style is influenced by the person you are, what you believe, think or feel. Embrace that and enjoy it. Let your sparkle out… Kooklah Xx

What to pack & what not to pack??

So the big USA trip is 11 days and a few hours away and I have begun to cement my list to pack.
My main focus, of course, is clothes (and, well, let’s face it- shoes, accessories), with many trips, you just have to pack for one type of weather with an item or two packed away in case the weather improves or worsens.

My trip… is going to be in varying weather. Here is an overview:

Los Angeles: 18-28 degrees (but heading to fall so probably not high 20s)
San Francisco: 13-23 degrees
Las Vegas: 20-34 degrees
New York City: 9-24 degrees

So in reality I am packing for weather typical of all seasons.. Instead of taking a few jumpers, summer dresses.. I am taking clothes that I can mix and match, layer and turn into winter or summer appropriate outfits in hardly any time at all. For example, going out dresses that can be worn in warm conditions but also paired with a cardigan/jacket and stockings for cooler nights, jeans with flowy tops and light layers instead of bulky items. This includes a fully lined but lightweight trenchcoat that will easily provide cover from cool breezes or warmth over ‘winter’ type layered outfits..

What is your must have outfit or clothing item for travel?

Stay tuned for a list of what I pack (and then when I return I will post if I used it or not!)
