Loving Life after 50

Travel Clothes and Chilly Nights

Monday Night I braved the cold and went for a walk, i really wanted to capture the lights around the Yellowknife city hall. Well without a tripod I am a bit shaky so the pictures did not turn out very well. ( may have been the temperatures affecting me, who knows, suffice it to say I got better shots with the iphone then I did my rebel on night setting). Interesting fact, glasses and cold do not play well together, I think if I lived in the North I would have to invest in Laser surgery ( my eyes are to dry for contacts lately)

If you have been with me for a bit you probably read my rant on Travel Pet Peeves so you will not besurprised by how I truly dress when I travel, I despise.  Funny coincidence my travel Pet Peeve post was written on my last trip to Yellowknife, pure coincidence folks I promise. This time my travel wardrobe had to be planned around the fact that it is WINTER,  shocking I know, seriously winter means the walking will require something other than my normal ” work” boots.. ( and who wants to take up room in a suitcase with big furry boots??? My trusty Cougars to the rescue.  
I am a leggings and boots kind of gal when I travel so, Yellowknife=knit lined leggings right? Thought i would pair my Giant Tiger leggings with the Royal Blue Cardigan ( Giant Tiger). I added my Banana Republic LBD, for an extra layer and a slight dressier feel. ( and did it all not just go perfectly with my Lookbook Necklace??

Kate Spade Watch
Switched out my Kate Spade that i have been carrying continuously for my Coach Wine/Oxblood/marsala bag, shame on me that I have not been using this awesome bag more reglarly this year. ( Bet you are digging my highly professional sophisticated suitcase…….I always look for an inexpensive stand out bag, one that no-one else will have so it is noticeable coming out on the carasel)
