I am frantically packing - behind as usual due to workload - to be in Aspen tomorrow for Mr Toast and Jam's Tea. It promises to be a wonderful occasion and I am so looking forward to it. The drop in temperature is going to be a bit of a shock to my system I can tell you but once I'm settled, I know all will be well. It's going to be interesting as there are many people attending that I haven't met before.
So presently am in the throes of literally throwing things into a suitcase. What do you think?
For starters I thought I'd pack these Stella McCartney trousers as they're comfortable - in fact I may even travel in them. I have a couple of tops to go with them.
I like this Donna Karen Cashmere Jersey Silk as it's so versatile.
And I like the way it falls at the back.
If I do travel in that outfit I can wear these Christian Louboutin ankle boots:
I'm also packing:
which will go with a dressier pair of trousers and these shoes which are Miu Miu
I am still thinking about a tea dress but I'm not lee keen as I find them all so twee. It will probably be a cashmere dress with a cowl collar. I'm sure I'll find a pair of shoes to go with it.
I was looking for an evening dress but decided I had better in my wardrobe so will take this one. It has been worn but the people I'm meeting will not have seen it before. I decided on some colour instead of my usual black.
I'm not a clumpy shoe lover so I think Jimmy Shoo will win out with these even thougth they're not as high as I would like. If I see anything in Aspen I may splurge.
I have also managed to make a Stollen
and an Apple Strudel
They look a bit alike but they're very different - we can always put them at opposite end of the table.
Also bringing my favourite Austrian chocolates: Mozart Kugler.
I have to finish packing!
