Oh.. crap, it's March already!? That means I have one month to get ready for my trip back to Madagascar. Mostly what that means is I need to hit the gym daily and continue to carefully plan my packing. I have a real challenge ahead of me on this trip. Not only do I need to pack for 2 weeks in the field, but I also will have 1 week at a conference. Now, I have only been to a handful of conferences before this one so I am a bit stuck on what exactly conference wear might be, especially in my field. Botanists are not known for their stunning fashion sense... But it will be in a conservative African country, that is also very poor. What am I getting at? I need clothing that is presentable, but not flashy. Travels well (it will be packed for at least a month before it gets to breathe again), comfortable in the tropics and attractive (who wants to look horrible while giving a presentation?).
I got this idea from another blogger, Short and Curvy, a fellow curvy girl who does an amazing job finding deals and looking great:
