I'll be in Guanajuato, Mexico in October and I am so excited to make this trip. We spend time on the border each year, and all the news reports are correct-it is pretty close to Afghanistan in tone at times. This fall I'll be inland, staying in a colonial town with buildings dating to the 16th century. The town is renowned for its architecture, and also for the festivals in the fall.
I am not even checking airfares yet because I have been so busy--->deciding on a travel wardrobe. It needs to be cool for walking, and have some layers for the evening. The area is at 6500 ft, so will be windy and cool at night. I used that information to choose a few warm tops, like the long sleeve coral top, the blue striped top and the tan/brown striped sweater. These will coordinate with either a pair of greenish slacks and also with some white jean capris. That would give me 4 outfits...not nearly enough. So I picked some light woven shells, and sleeveless brown sweater. The brown sweater and rust cardi will coordinate with both slacks and jeans=2 more outfits. 6...getting closer. The 5 other woven shells will go with each pair of pants, giving me 10 other combinations. Sixteen total so far.
I need to weed out the not so lovely stuff, and add a pair of pants in a dark knit. I have a few pairs but they are too big and while they'd be fine, I feel sloppy in them. I'd like a pair of tight fitting brown knit pants and maybe also a black pair. And I need a warmer cardi in black-that is already in my closet.
I haven't looked at footwear, hat or purse yet. Do you have any pearls of wisdom for me?
Hysteria aside, I am having fun, and view this as a chance to buy new shoes :-)
