Day Two of our "What to Pack?" Series
Now that you have picked your perfect travel coat, the second most important item to consider for your travel wardrobe is your footwear for day. Of course you need something fashionable, but it also must withstand walking long distances, navigating over cobblestones and climbing the stairs of say the piazza di Spagna, aka the Spanish steps, in Rome.
When I was looking to build my travel wardrobe, I knew a flat boot was just what I needed and spent considerable time searching out the perfect pair. After much debate, I settled on my Paige boots from Frye in “saddle”. I felt the camel color was a bit unexpected and would work well with the skinny dark denim jeans I live in on trips. Also, the style was unique and would lend itself well to the inevitable “distressing” that comes with any journey.
My advice: after you have purchased your perfect travel boots, test drive them on a long walk at home to break them in properly, ensure you pack the correct weight of sock and to see if you need to get any inserts for them.
