What I Wore on our Mediterranean Cruise

Here is a little Excursion Wear 101 for you. We went to 7 cities and did a lot of walking in all kinds of weather. I certainly wish someone had notified me of how much I'd be walking on this trip (ahem, Dan). Dan keeps a pedometer so he kept track of how much we walked and I am so glad I brought comfortable shoes! I've documented the locations, mileage, and weather conditions of each city we went to... (except for the days we were in Barcelona and Amsterdam because I looked like a hobo but, for the record, we walked 15 miles...oy vey!) and also what I wore and where it's from.

You'll notice the outfits sort-of coordinate. I tend to do that on trips. I decide on brown or black and what my accent colors will be. This eliminates the need to bring your entire wardrobe. As long as nothing gets dirty you can mix and match during your whole trip! I didn't realize I owned so much pink/coral but I guess I do. The shoes are flats (duh) and occasionally I wore layers in case the weather changed on me (which it often does in October in the Mediterranean). These are my excursion outfits. For dinner, on a cruise, you must dress up. I dont have photos of those outfits because we were too busy stuffing our faces to take any photos. Seriously, somuchfoods!!!

REMARKS: When it's humid, just wear whatever makes you the most comfortable. A cotton, belted dress with sandals does the trick for me!

WEARING: Sweater and Jeggings: H&M, Sandals: Target, Scarf: street vendor in Rome.

CITY: Valletta & Mdina, Malta
DATE: Oct 7, 2013
WEARING: Shorts, Top and Sandals: Target, Aviators: Nordstrom.
