Petite Fashion Challenge #11
No, I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth. I’ve been too busy with bike racing and work to really do any photos of any outfits lately. I did finish my trench style cape, so stay tuned for that soon.
In the meantime, the latest Petite Fashion Challenge is here, and this one was easy for me since I already had to put together a vacation wardrobe on my honeymoon, and thus did not have to put together anything new. Here we go:
For my vacation wardrobe, I need clothes that were comfortable enough for sightseeing in the heat of Rome in mid July, but also be able to do double duty for elegant dinners in Rome, and transfer into appropriate attire for my cycling vacation in France following my week in Italy. I tried to pack only items that were made of knit materials, so that everything would avoid wrinkling and dry quickly after sink washing. I also wanted stuff that wicked sweat.
Here are a few examples of how to dress for Europe in July, when one’s itinerary involves traipsing all over Vatican City or ancient Ruins during the day, then enjoying an elegant candlelit dinner at night. I also included some outfits that transitioned from Italy to Paris, where the temps fluctuated a good 30º F
