Pack Rat: Is This Heaven? Edition

I'm headed to visit friends and family in Iowa, and I am at a loss with what to pack.  You'd think that after living there for over a quarter of a century I could easily prepare for a visit of a few days, but I've gotten out of the habit of dressing for cold.  I don't think too many people would confuse Iowa with heaven this time of year... I don't imagine heaven is filled with frozen slush and barren winter fields.

The clip above is from Field of Dreams.

I am planning on continuing my Closet Excavation Challenge, so I will be packing blue dresses.   I don't have a lot of room to spare, so I will try to include warm items that pack down and can be worn multiple times.  I will have access to a washer and dryer, so I'll have to really resist the urge to over pack this time.

So far I'm thinking of bringing...

  • Four dresses (all are shades of blue)
  • Three sweaters (two cashmere)
  • Two tank tops
  • One pair of jeans
  • One wool jacket
  • Two scarves
  • One pair of boots
  • One pair of shoes
  • Workout clothes and shoes
This selection of clothes should more than get me through the coffees and dinners that await me as long as I can resist the urge add "just one more thing" two dozen times like I often do.
