Viet is about to head off to Indian on a charitable mission:
I am going to Northern India near the Himalayas for 5 weeks in June-July and wondered if you had any suggestions on a practical but comfortable and stylish outfit? I am volunteering with some health clinics over there and doing some independent travel. Weather will be mild 60F-70F but rainy. Only rules would include staying very modest to respect cultural norms.
A trip to India is the perfect opportunity to play with bright colors and dashes of sparkles. Here's my recommendation for Viet when she's exploring:
Tunic - In versatile chambray from Anthropologie.
Sweater - A bright cover-up for cooler evenings.
Leggings - Basic black leggings are comfortable for a range of temperatures. Make sure they are nice and opaque for modesty.
Sunglasses - Perfect for a Himalayan adventure.
Necklace - Yellow beads with a bright blue accent.
Bracelet - Turquoise and gold bangles.
Sandals - Strappy blue sandals with green and pink jewels. Switch out for a pair of converse sneakers when it rains.
Journal - A yellow leather journal perfect for recording your travels.
Bon voyage Viet!
