For a day wandering through Zurich, our “hub” for this trip, I threw on a sweater and thrifted tank. I also had my jacket because the weather during the day had been mediocre. Breaks of sun between light rain and pretty constant cloudiness kept temperatures in the fifties and low sixties so I was glad to have my jacket.
To keep my packing light and simple, I wore a pair of stud earrings M got as a gift for me several years ago and a vintage necklace that matched all my outfits. Keeping the accessory selection very basic definitely helped ensure I didn’t lose anything along the way. I don’t love living out of a suitcase, and I find that I tend to lose a thing or two when I’m not careful. I couldn’t lose it if I did not even carry it across the Atlantic with me!
It appears I didn’t photograph that awesome aforementioned anorak?! I did wear it often though and proof is in the pudding pictures. I wore it on our venture up Mount Pilatus, through our stroll around Old Town Zurich, to the top of Uetliberg, and on the plane across the Atlantic.
1. Aren’t these flowers on this house amazing?! They aren’t lilacs, though they look similar. I absolutely love lilacs and their amazing, though short-lived, aroma. Someday I’d love to have a house with an entrance adorned in purple lilacs like this!
2. The water in Switzerland is so clean you can drink from fountains like the one below. I can’t imagine doing something like that at home, but I saw it happening on many occasions. And the locals ensured us it was just a typical practice around town. In fact, a passerby was drinking from the fountain just before I took the photo.
