It seems only yesterday I was wondering what to wear in Colorado. As I said, wondering what to pack—essentially wondering what to wear in advance, in a foreign setting, is quite an extensive endeavor for me.
This week, my setting is about to get even more foreign. Tomorrow, I’m headed to Sweden!
I haven’t yet begun to pack. It’s not that I’m not excited. On the contrary, I’m sort of paralyzed with anticipation. I’ll be one third of a traveling trio that includes dear Erin Dixon of Dossier and Turner, who styled the magazine’s latest cover–a springtime stunner starring Daria Werbowy.
The purpose of this trip is not to sip aquavit, sweat in saunas, or scour modern design shops (though we just might do all those things), but rather to spend a few days with Swedish academics and fashion designers whose work is tied to the country’s admirable efforts in sustainable development. So of course, I am wondering what to wear. Financial Times editor Vanessa Friedman totally nailed the conundrum of packing of clothes for a trip to research sustainability and style when she wrote this article about wondering what to wear to a fashion conference in Copenhagen.

Although spring has sprung in New York, it looks like Stockholm is expecting light snow, so I’ll likely bring my jeans, sweaters and scarves. Truth be told, I’m tempted to just forget it all. It wouldn’t be the most sustainable solution, but then I would just have to go shopping in Stockholm.
