Packing Confusion

Here in the D.C. area, it's been unseasonably warm.  In fact, the past few days have been near 60, much warmer than usual for December.  And, with our trip coming up quickly (we'll be there in 2 weeks!), this weather is making it tricky to know what to pack and what to wear.

Honestly, being 6 months pregnant, my favorite outfit (my maternity uniform these days) consists of a dress, leggings, and boots.  All of my jeans fall down when I walk - not really sure why they fit so differently this time around!  Even ones that fit perfectly in the fitting room... sag, sag, ugh!  Unfortunately, for 4 or 5 park days, I know I won't be comfortable in my cute boots.  They're comfortable, but not for 6-10 miles per day!

Another issue - we don't know what the weather will be like in Florida in January!  Last year it was in the upper 60's - perfect weather in my opinion.  Two years ago, it was sleeting and miserable.  Current forecasts predict the next 2 weeks to have highs in the upper 70's-low 80's with evenings in the mid 50's.  Quite a gap between morning and night!  Luckily, we'll have our car parked nearby, so we can easily have a change of clothes nearby or simply store jackets in the stroller basket. 

So, I'll obviously have to keep a close eye on the forecasts, but now I'm wondering if we should pull out some shorts.  It seems as though we'll have to pack some winter clothes for traveling, if nothing more, and enough to layer!  I can't even imagine the upper 70's right now - hope my maternity shorts fit better than my pants!
One thing for sure - I'll be packing my Baby Wants a Mickey Bar t-shirt for a day in the park!

Whatever the temperature - we'll be at The Happiest Place on Earth in less than 2 weeks!!!  Hooray!

  1. January is always tricky! The year we went in January, we were bundled up. But a few times my parents have gone in January (without us) and they are in t-shirts and shorts. Fingers crossed you have great weather! :-)
