Cold Weather Travel Wardrobe and Germany Highlights

Living in California, it was not easy for me to pack for a two-week trip to Germany in December as I don't have true winter clothes. I planned quite a bit and am happy to say that everything worked out quite well.

I tried on most of the outfits before I packed to make sure everything worked out the way I had envisioned it. I had learned a hard lesson during our summer vacation when I hadn't tried on anything and just put together outfits in my head and then nothing worked out the way I wanted it to.

I bought a plain, grey jacket and decided to liven it up a bit with a colorful scarf, hat, and gloves. The gloves, hat and scarf were my favorite purchase in preparation for the trip.
Here are a few of my favorite views of my hometown - Würzburg. Würzburg is the starting point of the Romantic Road and is therefore quite the tourist destination. 

Since it was Christmas time, we had fun visiting the Christmas Market a few times. 

When I'm "home," I always have to do a little shopping as I love to wear clothes and accessories that I buy on trips. Wearing them always transports me back to the trip. I plan on wearing the heart sweater on Valentine's Day. 

I have an especially hard time passing up the Desigual outlet...
