I love it, it's gorgeous, but after trying it on with various pants, tops, etc., I decided it's not a jacket I would want to wear day-in, day-out for 3 weeks.
SO...I went through my closets and finally chose this jacket, which I made three years ago to take to Sicily.
It has my necessary travel pockets inside, it's lightweight and comfortable, and it goes with all the other items I'm taking (one of the decided advantages of wearing the same color scheme FOREVER).
So, here are my wardrobe choices...(remember, I do check a modest size suitcase)
Coats and Jackets: (links to original posts)
Clockwise: Black mini boot cut Chicos jeans, Red denim jeans, Black/Silver
Striped Bengaline jeans, made by me but not blogged about, Black Stretch Crepe Eileen Fisher slim pants, and gray NYDJ chinos.
All RTW, gray/black striped sweater, houndstooth sweater jacket, and a black sweater jacket.
Left to right from top...
Black, off-white and red Eileen Fisher silk tees, gray/black striped shell, gray/black striped turtleneck (RTW) gray tee, also RTW, and this morning's project, a red/black striped funnel-necked Burda top from a wonderful fabric from Marcy Tilton.
The waterproof booties were added due to rain forecast in Lisbon while we are there. (Hey, I'm from California, rain is ALWAYS welcome!)
Rainhat added, black felt beloved Patricia Underwood hat, scarves and purse.
If my suitcase is too full/heavy, these will be severely edited!
We leave early on Friday and will be gone almost three weeks. I'll post pictures if I have the chance (and the internet).
P.S. Linking up to Patti and the other Visible Women here at Not Dead Yet Style!
