My Traveling Outfit

Amour VertI’m already planning what I’ll wear on the plane for my winter vacation in Seattle.

This dress was designed for me! It’s the first thing that caught my eye when I walked into Drizzle and Shine for the first time. A fashionable tweedy look without the itch of wool because it’s organic cotton. Looking closely it’s a tiny herringbone pattern.

Store owner, Jean, is a lovely model. This dress looks great with tall boots and goes with any colour of tights.


Meeting Jean’s customers and friends was a pleasure! I’m not the only one that loves this dress …

I wore it to meet Joni.


And on several occasions during my last visit in Seattle.

Amour Vert clothing is made in the USA.

“A woman should never have to sacrifice style for sustainability. Our choices matter – smart fashion is our future.”

“Amour Vert was founded on the belief that great fashion and social responsibility can coexist. Our name means Green Love in French, but it also means American manufacturing, non-toxic dyes, sustainable fabrics, a zero-waste philosophy, and above all, enduring style.”

I’m so excited! Of course, visiting my daughter will be the highlight of the trip. However, I’m looking forward to another shopping spree in her beautiful eco boutique.

Happy Holidays dear friends!  

May this Christmas season bring peace and joy to our hearts!

love and blessings

      Thanks so much Bob! It’s easy to be the most fashionable on airplanes, as most people wear jeans – lol – Gone are the days when ladies wore their Sunday best to travel and gentlemen wore suits and ties. *sigh*

      Hope you are enjoying the holidays!

    I know you’ll find some great bargains, and more beautiful clothes!

    My dear Carmen, how beautiful you look with this dress! Although it is very short, very mini, the perfection of the turning of your legs and the correct choice of your stockings makes it wonderful. You know my taste for gray (in the first photo of your blog you wore gray), and this pearl shade is cute, which is embellished more with the edges of the bass, sleeves and neck. It is clear that this dress is designed for you, why you make it beautiful, but … what dress is not wonderful about you? Happy Holidays!

      Thanks very much for your comment Josep-Maria and as always, you describe in detail. I only wear mini dresses with tights or leggings, this way I think it looks decent! lol

      Happy holidays and enjoy precious time with your family!🎄

    I think I like this best with the mustard tights. You’re right that it’s a versatile piece.

      Thank you Danielle! I like the mustard tights too, but I don’t have this colour yet. I’m going to wear this dress with red tights during the holidays.🎄
