Things to do today:

1. Tell T to grow a beard
2. Buy purple tights
3. Take mini vacation, compliments of Camera Obscura

I'd never have picked purple tights as a must-have item for a Parisian get away. Who knew they'd look so great in the city of lights?
They've inspired some reminiscing this morning... My first trip to New York City. We stayed at the Chelsea Hotel. I'd packed a 1970's caramel-colored wool cape. I wore it with a denim pencil skirt, black knee high boots and tied my favorite leopard print scarf around my neck. It was October. We walked in Central Park. I felt a little like the lead in an early Woody Allen movie. Sigh.

What one unforgettable item have you packed/ would you pack to a dream destination?
