I'm already back from a few days away to Cotonou but here's my traveling outfit which for once I didn't fuss over days in advance. I elaborated it very quickly and easily. Requirements were that the look had to be:
- comfy: stretchy jeans and sneakers to walk up and down airport stairs with luggage;
- stainproof: not wearing my fanciest items in case of spilling incidents, also darker colors for an easier concealment purpose;
- layered: short sleeved linen tee underneath a wool mixed sweatshirt to face the humid heat upon arrival, a big scarf to avoid catching a cold at departure, and
- fun: with African textile printed sneakers adding touches of color in a grey and navy base.
At first, I wanted it to be more grown up stylish and wear shoes like loafers or fluid black pants but practicality and common sense won since I knew that for such a short vacation and destination, closed toes shoes were not necessary and jeans were likely more useful for motorcycle rides and other adventures than smartish pants.
