I haven't traveled a lot lately so getting ready to fly away doesn't come spontaneously:
I forgot to check the validity of my passport which expired therefore made me stress and run around town like a fool headless chicken,
I don't know what to wear for the plane,
I, at least, know what I'll bring: swimming and running gear, some barely stored away summer clothes and Birks. I'm sure I'll forget something.
Oh and I just dashed to the supermarket to find a proper suitcase.
Anyway, I took to Polyvore to think about my conundrum: leaving 11 ° C Paris with a chance of rain and heading to tropical 30 ° C Cotonou. All the while remaining comfortable for the flight and chic enough for my self-esteem.
First optimistic combination - I didn't know then that temperatures would drop so significatively by friday over France - included a trench, simple tshirt, jeans and sneakers. I don't think that will be an option. I don't want to freeze for the sake of a good outfit.
And before you ask, no I don't have a Trio. It's a virtual outfit so I fulfilled a fantasy.
A second more realistic approach, considering the weather forecast, now features a coat (miiine, my precious) and a warmer knit. The long sleeved cotton or linen shirt would be ideal on arrival for protection against evening mosquitoes and still light enough (I hope) to survive the heat.
Third and fourth looks, maybe slightly more "refined" ensembles would include dark grey jeans and ballet flats.
What do you think ? Any advice?
