My travel wardrobe, based on two pair of black pants – one silk, one cotton twill – worked out well too. It was warm enough that I didn’t need to wear my scarves, and one day I pulled off my sweater mid-day, but that was part of the plan. Layering makes it possible to pile on, or peel off, depending on what you encounter.
So Monday and Tuesday I dressed out of my suitcase – Monday, I did some gardening, and Tuesday we flew back to Chicago. (yes, on Monday I borrowed casual shoes from my mother, so my loafers wouldn’t get destroyed!)
