The clothes I bought in Paris are going to have to do a lot of heavy lifting, so I’ve been giving some thought to how many different ways I can wear them. Here are my ideas, so far…
First up, the dress that I bought at French Trotters. It’s not available, but it’s rather similar to this dress (mine has a bit more clearly defined pattern). I know that I can wear this with a turtleneck layered underneath, warm tights, boots and a scarf – I did that in Paris! But I can also scale it back to just leggings and flats, or sandals and bare legs…
Next, I want to make sure that I get maximum utilization from my new striped tee shirt. These 3 options will see me through all but the most incredibly warm days (sleeves can be pushed up…)
And finally, my new cashmere sweatshirt. I’m going to think of this more as a cardigan, and less as a sweatshirt, and bring it in as a 2nd layer for all sorts of outfits. It’s lightweight and easy to carry, so it could work as a shield from air conditioning virtually any time. (this is not the sweat that I bought, but it’s virtually identical…)
What other garments do you suggest that need the all-season treatment?
