I have recently joined pinterest, and I noticed that before I pinned my own outfits, my blog's photos were being pinned here and there, and quite a few of them are outfit of the day photos, which is awesome. :-) So I delved a little further and discovered that my polyvore sets were really popular on pinterest, and of all my polyvore sets, the packing sets are the most popular. Well, okay then, if that's what the people want, I'll provide. So at the end of the post I will include a polyvore set I've entitled "Ireland Packing Polyvore" for anyone who wants to pin it for any future packing ideas they need.
I will keep the comments brief, letting the outfits speak for themselves, but if I have something to say, I'll definitely mention it...

There was a fifth full day of traveling, but that was the day that Mr. Dina was very ill, so we didn't do much beyond checking out of Bunratty and driving to Dublin. Then the kids and I went to dinner, without Mr. Dina. If I recall, I wore the comfy Boden leggings with the Boden sweater.

I feel like I chose well for this trip. The boots may seem a big extravagance when airlines limit just how much luggage a family can take, but with all of my undergarments, tights, and socks packed into them, there was plenty of room left over. I don't regret bringing any of these items, and as you can see from the right hand side, many of the items were worn multiple times. The items on the left packed well and didn't wrinkle, so I can highly recommend any sort of item like that for any packing you may have like this in the future. Because it was Ireland in the early spring, I made sure to pack woolen items for warmth and layering, but also packed a lightweight down coat to ensure that it wouldn't weigh me (or my luggage) down, but still keep me warm, AND not wrinkle. Surprisingly I needed the sunglasses nearly daily, not a drop of rain fell while we were there. It was pretty stunning how bright Ireland was!
Okay, that's it for now. Thank you all for your sweet comments over the last few posts. My darling Angus is really sick with the stomach flu, and just on the mend, so most of my time over the past day has been to tending him, but I definitely have plans to go back and comment to all of your nice thoughts!
