Today's Everyday Fashion: Weather Challenged

Well, it's official. I'm the world's worst packer. I always check the weather before I leave and yet somehow end up with a suitcase full of items that are all wrong. Today I am wearing this outfit to the bridesmaid's luncheon for the wedding. It's colder than I expected so I'll be adding navy leggings for some extra warmth. This is a new dress that I am absolutely loving though - anything with a tribal or 70's inspired print is on my wish list for fall! Kind of hard to tell in the picture, but it is really flattering and has kind of a glossy sheen so it could definitely be worn for a night out, or it can be dressed down for a day event like I did here. Tell me - what are your strategies for packing correctly for the weather?
