Tony and I have been making a big effort to maximize our friend time. It won’t be long before the baby arrives, and we want to take in as much as we can before we are all consumed.
As luck would have it, Zurich’s summer has extended well into late September, allowing for a few more gorgeous, sunny, jacket-less days. It has been unlike any autumn we’ve experienced in Zurich. We met our friends for brunch at The Artisan this weekend and sat outside, soaking in the sun.
When it comes to my mommy fashion, in an effort to save money, I am trying to wear as many of my existing clothes as possible. As luck would have it, my 3/4 length skirts all have elastic waistbands. I never realized how important the word “elastic” would become. I paired my green skirt with a flowy white top and my favorite yellow “clown shoes” – Tony’s phrase, not mine. It felt like the perfect combination of summer and autumn, all while not smashing my baby bump. That is the key to comfort these days.
In Chennai, the weather is exceptionally warm, even in January. Warm and humid, I should say, as much of it borders the ocean.
My friend Deepali and I took a drive along the beach to view a new hotel property, and I wore my most favorite, and tasteful, long pink dress. Given most of my travels to date with this dress have been by myself, I was glad to finally have some full length photos.
We stopped at a coconut stand along the way for fresh juice and coconut “meat”, and continued on towards the beach, where the wind whipped at our hair and faces. It was so gorgeous and peaceful – I could’ve stayed there all day.
What the Missus Wore: Dress by Maje (dresses here)// sandals by Chie Mihara
Our last day in Palermo was another scorcher – that is why we couldn’t wait to go bananas at the gelato fest. I saved one of my favorite summer dresses for last, a beautiful flowy number from Anthropologie. It is a few years old but I have included some links to similar styles at Asos.
Also, for the most comfortable sandals, I always stick with always Chie Mihara or Seychelles.
