Summer for many people means travelling, and it was no different for me.
Twice this month I went away; the first time was for the long weekend in France (see my previous posts for the travelog), and the second time for work: like every year since 2005 or so, I have been working for EA (Electronic Arts) at the GamesCom (formerly GamesConvention). This year, I didn't take any pictures at the GamesCom, but you can get a pretty good idea of what it was like from last year's post about the show here.
Since this post is part of my "Fashion Calendar" series, I better get to the point:
What to wear for travelling.
First of all, travelling for me usually means packing lightly, as I need to be able to carry my stuff on my own at all times, sometimes for considerable distances (you know how long the walking ways in airports and at train stations can be). It never takes me longer than half an hour to get ready, being used to both business and leisure travelling.
As for the actual outfit, that depends mainly on the weather, on the distance to cover and on what I expect to be doing upon my arrival.
For instance, for the weekend in France, I knew we were going to be picked up at the airport by W and then driven to the village to spend the rest of the evening with the family, and not going anywhere else. Therefore, casual summer clothes were my choice; not too summery (no spaghetti strap top or lightweight dress or skirt), as I didn't want to be cold on the plane where the airconditioning often makes for chilly temperatures.
