Put together an outfit made for sightseeing. It should be one that will be comfortable for walking around in and can last you from the early morning until dinner and drinks in the evening. Plus, you’re on vacation, so you’d better make sure you look good in photos, which you’ll have for years to come.
And…a sightseeing I did go! To Chicago!
I spent a few days last week in the beautiful city of Chicago, so I was faced with the eternal question…what do I wear?! As a Southern California girl, I was a bit worried. I was expecting the weather to be cold, but I’m without much experience of just exactly what “cold” means. And coming from a city with such a big car culture, I was worried if my feet would hold up for several days of walking the city.
I learned two things…I can layer a surprising amount of clothing under my trench coat…and no, my feet will not hold up for several days of serious city walking.
I was itching to wear a pair of heels the entire trip, because I just don’t feel put together in a pair of flats. The flats beat up my feet by the end of the trip…but a pair of heels would have murdered them. Other sight seeing necessities included a big bag for DSLR schlepping and a fun, colorful scarf for style. When we went out for dinner, I simply removed the trench coat to reveal my blazer and dress shirt combo.
Curly haired readers – what on earth do you do when you travel? I have been known to schlep a blow dryer and diffuser around in dire situations, but that’s just not practical. I also prefer to use mousse for my hair, which doesn’t come in carry-on 3oz. sizes. I often end up doing my hair the night before a trip and hoping it lasts the entire time without turning into a complete mess. How do you do it?
