When trees outside are bent in half by gusting winds and local news channels are filled with talk of cars turned submarines it's only human to think back on better, sunnier days. As I was replying to Mirella's email about convenient blogging, it was only logical that those sunny days were Swiss in nature. So I thought I'd share some more photos of Zurich in the spring time. Witness pastel painted houses, winding cobblestone streets, teenagers reliving mediaeval history, shops with kettles and coffee cups arranged by colour, and a river as clear and turquoise as any tropical sea.
I've had several messages from readers (yay!) about what to wear when travelling abroad, and my usual answers involve checking typical weather conditions, crawling street style blogs, and making sure that all your clothes can be mixed and matched. For Zurich, my khaki Zara jacket and cream t-shirt and floral skort combo were my go-to pieces, if only because they were the only clean items in my luggage by that point. Mirella told me I looked simply Parisian in them, which was extremely gratifying to hear coming off a five hour train from France.
So today's travel tip: pack a lightweight tailored blazer for May in western Europe. :P
