Susan Dromey Heeter's Budget Vogue: Time for a vintage vacation, real or imagined
- Poet James Longenbach
Oh, but that this "Budget Vogue" fashionista were packing for a quick jaunt to Hawaii, to Aruba, to Miami... What would I pack? A great book, new pajamas, a tea cup, khaki shorts, a T-shirt. There - I'd be done.
I once wore a vintage cowboy hat on the entire ride from Michigan back to New England. Somehow it gave me the essence of Marlboro Man. And I was no longer the mom trying to ignore her children in the back of the van; I was, instead, the cowgirl on the plains, alone with her horse by the campfire.
May you, dear "Budget Vogue" readers, stay safe in all your travels - whether to Spain, Florida or the local Market Basket. Pack what brings you warmth, what keeps you safe, what makes you breathe a little easier - the glow of an Andalusian sunset, the lapping of the Gulf surf or the aroma of the baked chickens.
