For a 3-week trip to Nantes, followed by a week in Massachusetts, a sort of poorgirl version of what the stylish Deja Pseu took to Europe.
Toppers: 1 grey large shrug sweater (wool-blend), light grey gauzy topper (Eileen-Fisher-esque, I hope), Babette bronze long top
Tops: charcoal boxy long tee, 2 black tops, 1 beige linen big shirt
Tanks:long black microfiber, regular microfiber (purple?)
Pants: black ponte leggings, dark denim capri leggings, black "tech" pants, black yoga pants (double as pjs)
2 scarves, dusty rose and eggplant
Some ugly, but comfortable* shoes (my problem area): leather tevas, black sport mary janes, croc(!) ballet flats, SAS (!) sandals
*I have to bring a lot of shoes because everything hurts eventually. These are comfortable for the longest time. Rejected shoes included such well-known comfort brands as Mephisto and Wolky, which are not comfortable for me.
As I scan this list, I see that pretty much everything is thrifted** EXCEPT for leggings and tanks from Chico's. I HATE Chico's. However, if you get plain things--ponte pants, microfiber tanks--and use these tempting $25 off $50 coupons they send now and again, you can look ok and spend very little.
**Yes, even shoes. You would NOT believe how many unworn shoes I find. That includes the Mephisto and the Wolky. And the SAS. And--thank heavens-the crocs, which are ok in the rain.
Not too much???? Do you see anything that can be eliminated?
Mr FS and I are negotiating our reading material. So far, we have agreed on Thoreau's Walden and Emerson's Essays.
