I love Lucy! What is in your backpack?

 

I love Lucy clothes! Just like the ads claim they are perfectly packable.While stuck inside for a couple of days in torrential rain while cookingupstairs at Fifita’s guesthouse in Pangai, Ha’apai, Tonga, Dwight asked me “Whois Lucy? And why is her name onall your clothes?” 

It is true nearly everything in my backpack is from the Lucy store, on our summertrip in Tonga and Samoa this summer, I had two shorts, two capris, one longpants, half a dozen t-shirts and a long sleeve shirt all from the store. My oneskirt and one zip up warmer shirt are also great Lucy products. Nothingwrinkles, the fabric is easy to clean and the colors are great. I figure why goanywhere else?
When we were away traveling for a year in SE Asia, I lost so much weightwhen we came home I needed clothes in a new size. I had already discovered Lucyclothes but now became a walking store.

As Laura Frasersays in her new book, All Over the Map “My desires—to be free and tobelong, to be independent and to be inextricably loved, to be in motion and tobe still—pull me back and forth.” Luckily I can use my Lucy clothes at my job,on my two-mile walk to work and for travel. If only everything fit my life thiswell!

One thing I am so happy about is the new Everyday Pant! Last year I wore myfour pairs (I have them in every color) every day from October to April. I hadhoped that the new version would be more slim leg and it is and they look greaton! I like the new gray asphalt color and the new band at the waist iscomfortable and flattering! I am glad they got rid of the zippers at the bottomof the pants because I never knew what those were for! Like all Lucy clothesthey never wrinkle and wash and dry perfectly. The new fabric feels great, islightweight and they are definitely my favorite pants. 

At another time Fraser states in All Over the Map, “Almost anyone whois middle-aged can give you a long list of things that have gone wrong or thatdidn’t turn out the way they expected. But at least by now we have some measureof experience and wisdom to deal with it all. Things definitely aren’t easy foranyone.” She is a consummate traveler and does describe finding her own way bythe end of this story but one thing I can tell you as a fellow traveler, somethings can be easy! Shop at Lucy and you will have great clothes to wear andpack!
