Europe In The Fall

September 4, 2009

Now that my honeymoon plans are officially set, I am already thinking about my packing list. Fall is one of my favorite clothing seasons for men and women and the thought of denim, cardigans and leather boots give me the chills. With September issues and catalogs arriving daily, I’m beginning to scour the pages for inspiration to determine what I want to look like as a tourist in Europe and in pictures 30 years from now when my future children are flipping through our iPhoto Mac Book photo album. When I travel I prefer to blend in with the locals and do my best to keep people guessing as to where I am from. When I backpacked through Europe the first time in college, I definitely noticed that I was one of few who lacked running sneakers and college sweatshirts. Instead I managed to cram my leather jacket and other more sophisticated clothing into my 3-foot deep backpack – what a pain!

So today I am sharing my inspiration pieces for this fall adventure keeping chic comfort in mind. Now I have to figure out the temperature in the Austrian Alps and the Tuscan countryside in October to really refine my selections!
