I know, I know.. it’s only January. But I’m kind of over Winter fashion. Or at the very least, investing much in it. Since I’m already pretty well stocked on sweaters and boots – I’m carefully picking up pieces that I can wear now and also wear later. Here’s look at you, early Spring.
By the time we reached Amsterdam in our travels (catch up on the rest with my guides to Copenhagen and Prague), I had exhausted most of what was in my suitcase. So I reached for the classics. These black, distressed skinny jeans were worn constantly, both for flights and long days of walking around and this navy coat is so good it made the spot as my only coat for the trip (with heavyweight items I try to pick an option that can be dressed up or down and matches with everything – this one covers all those bases).
I am certain that our time spent in Prague is the closest I will ever come to living in a fairytale. The castles, the colors, the… everything. It just felt like magic. For the most part I try to pack practically with solids that I can mix and match – but I was happy to have packed a few standout pieces like this plaid skirtand floral dress for a city that felt like it deserved a little dressing up.
The interesting side effect of having a blog is that you also end up having a sort of visual diary of your life. A way to scroll back through nearly every week of my life for the past 3 years. I particularly like to do this at the end of each season to reminisce through where Adam and I went, and naturally, what I wore. Above are some of my favorites and original posts are linked left to right, below. And because another thing I like to do at the transition into a new season is shopping – I’ve included a few of my favorite Labor Day sales too. Hope you’re all having a fun long weekend!
