As usual, I’m planning to dress in layers, so worst case cold weather means more layers, and worst case warm weather means just a shirt rather than a shirt and sweater. If it gets too extreme, I go shopping, or I stay in the hotel. One can’t pack for every eventuality, unless your entire wardrobe goes along. Not an option!
So I’m flying to Paris with a couple of photographer friends. and Belovedest is joining me a few days later. I’ve debated the merits of wearing a white tee shirt, or even a striped tee shirt, on the plane, but I know perfectly well that if I spill something I’m going to kick myself, so solid black with accessories is how we’re going to roll. Slouch pants are comfortable, and have a certain insouciant charm that I really like; they flatter my very muscular legs too, which is nice! And please note – these pants aren’t NEARLY as short on me as they show on the website; on me, they have a clear “break” in the front of the pants when I’m standing. I have no idea why they are shown as ankle pants – they just look stubby that way!
I’m one of those people who always are wearing matching jewelry, because much of my jewelry is pearls, and they all go together! I know that it’s pretty “matchy matchy” for a lot of people, but I’m really comfortable with it, and that’s the most important thing to me.
B has a lengthy shopping list… and then we’re going out to dinner! When we’re shopping I actually spend quite a bit of time sitting in stores, so I can probably get by the entire day in my dress and flats – they’re built for comfort in addition to being very pretty.
And the last day? I don’t know what we’ll do. Walk, and walk, and walk, and walk, I’m sure!
I’m eager to hear any suggestions you have about Amsterdam – everything that I’ve read and seen about it seems wonderful!
