Trip took place the second half of August, in France, Germany and the Czech Republic. Mostly city, with a few trail and mountain days mixed in.

Travel outfit: linen midi-skirt with rugby tee and black cardigan, sneakers because they were bulkier.

Nothing went unworn, and I wore everything pretty evenly. I did laundry once, at the end of week one.

Wore the merino dress with or without leggings underneath. Wore the oxford shirt open as a topper and on its own as a top. Because I’m RATE to the core, I didn’t iron anything, just hung stuff near the shower as needed.

Didn’t really miss sandals or shorts. It wasn’t terribly hot except for our last day, when it hit 90. Spent most of the day at the Louvre before heading to the airport, so we weren’t out much in the heat.

No accessories to speak of. Didn’t want to fuss with a scarf, so brought one necklace -- small silver pendant that belonged to my great-grandmother -- on a chain that was a good length to go with pretty much everything. Carried either my nylon belt-bag or a convertible pack-tote (both Patagonia).

Most is shown below in Finds or Photos (Photo 4 is the skirt I have in olive; my Pata jacket has bright green trim, unlike the one in Photo 5).
