I finally got my tripod set up today and spent some time taking pics of my imagined trip outfits. And while I immediately ruled out some ideas just from looking at the pics (oh my goodness, I am SO glad I am doing my homework!!), I feel it's really coming together pretty well!
Unfortunately, for some reason, the flash wasn't working, so I had to adjust exposure in some of these to give you a better idea of the colours.
Here is what I'm working with so far; this might also suggest to you why I was a bit worried that my outfits were too wintery. We will be there March 18 to 25.
1- 4 Outfit 1: Travel outfit. It will likely be cold here in Canada when we leave, so I need to layer up. I'm wearing: New Ralph Lauren knit sheath (probably with a slip underneath), Theory turtleneck, navy hose, SW booties, Danier leather jacket, and Theory trench (courtesy BJ!!)
What do you think? My one concern is that the skirt is going to bag out on the plane. But I know from experience that a skimming dress is a wonder for travel. And no buckles or stuff to set off the alarms at security.
Also, is it okay to wear all these different navies together?
5/6 Possible outfit Day 2: I am imagining temperatures in the mid 50s (F) which would be usual, so that means a fair bit of layering. I'm going to do some more thinking and see how the pieces I'm planning to bring might work in slightly warmer temps -- mostly it would involve leaving off a layer and/or scarves, and switching to nude microfishnets from heavier hose. I show a few options below.
AT leopard print blouse, BR sweater, slouchy trousers, and either SE bootie or SW bootie. Trench. (My leather jacket can also be layered under the trench if needed.)
7/ 8 Possible outfit Day 3: Halogen seamed skirt (black) EF knit shirt, silk scarf from China, Danier leather jacket. Trench on top if needed.
9/10 Possible outfit Day 4: Striped top, slouchy trousers, Danier jacket, silk scarf.
11/ 12 Possible Day 5: Berry t-neck, Halogen skirt, scarf, Danier jacket. Or with AT navy silk shirt.
13-17 -- various mix and match possibilities for other options. Of course there are more.
Thanks for looking, and any suggestions you might have, I would love to hear!
