The Knee Boots Have Landed…
I took advantage of the cool, wet weather we’ve had the last couple of days to “road test” some pieces I’m considering for my travel wardrobe. These boots passed with flying colors. I’ve been looking for some sleek, weatherproof knee boots for several seasons, but everything I tried was either too clunky-looking or too tall/snug in the calf. I ordered a few pairs during the Cyber Monday sales to try, and this was the one that hit the trifecta of Style, Comfort and Fit. And now they’re 70% off! (Final sale.) Available in black and espresso suede, and fit is true-to-size.

I’ve also decided to bring these grey jeans as one of my pants selections. They’re comfortable, they work with all of my footwear selections, and I like how they look.
That slouchy cashmere sweater is on my short list too. (Yes, my mirror is dirty, that isn’t lint. 😆 )
A few of you have asked me about handbags, and I’m still deciding. I ordered the Pearl in graphite when it was on sale, and will probably bring that one. It’s nice to have something that isn’t black. (It’s still 30% off.)
I think it might be prudent to bring a larger bag that will hold a folding umbrella, TBD. For years I traveled with my Givenchy Small Pandora (yes, I still have it) as it holds quite a bit, though it does tend to get a bit heavy by the end of the day. Or I may just bring one of my small Longchamp totes.
I’ll be finalizing my travel wardrobe this weekend, and will post early next week.
