My blog is rather dominated by sewing posts at the moment. Rest assured we have a song on the way, and also I will endeavour to photograph some more food soon but in the mean time please indulge my frenetic pre-emigration sewing output.
In between leaving Holland and returning to New Zealand we will be ‘on the road’ for five weeks. And a lot of that time will be spent in Cambodia. I have to confess I don’t enjoy heat! I’m not a sun-worshiper and tend to get a little testy when overheated. Part of my coping strategy is knowing when I’m going to be hot and wearing the right clothing. So I’ve been making some travel wear recently.
I’m a low-maintenance traveler. I don’t bring makeup, heels or fancy clothes with me when traveling unless I know that an evening out somewhere swish is on the cards. My travel wear reflects this. I wear shapes and colours that I might otherwise consider not my best work. Comfort at all costs is my mantra!
I got the opportunity to road test three garments from my Travel Wear ’12 collection over the last few days in the very hot and sunny city of Barcelona (try not to hate me too much!) I was very pleased with how they fared.
