Well, I survived another school visit weekend and the Chloe flats were perfection. Super comfortable and practical. However, when my sister read my post on them, she suggested that sneakers would be better for my trip to see her in London. Besides an enormous amount of walking, rain is an issue.
This may sound strange, but I try to look like a mother at school events. Or at least, not like a fashion-insider. I did a very good job this past weekend, except the Aquazzara pumps were possibly a bit much for an evening performance– whatever. In London I plan on being comfortably chic with a touch of urban toughness, a mom abroad if you will.
Here’s what I’m thinking of taking: I hate to admit it, but I’m a tad over the fisherman knit, I love this boiled-knit wool Isabel Marant sweater instead. I will wear a long sleeved T underneath. Let me wax poetic about cords! I am completely into corduroy right now, feels very ’70s in such a good way. The Pandora is still my favorite bag, and for traveling, it’s brilliant. An LL Bean zip-top tote is all I’ll need for a weekend away.The Givenchy wrap bracelet has been my go-to piece for a year now, it’s more subtle than an Hermes Collier de Chien, but the same effect. And sneakers. As much as I would love a Saint Laurent pair ($$$), these Adidas have served me well for years.
Not sure about which coat/jacket I will take, TBC…
