Floral Fancies

sporting cut offs and Converse in Luxembourg city

This summer I spent some time in Europe including a couple of days in the city of Luxembourg in the country of the same name.  One of the days happened to be National Day, a public holiday so there were many people out and about and lots of activity in the city center.  French is one of the languages spoken here so I got to practice some of what I learned in high school and college.  So far, I've practiced my French in Montreal, Canada and Luxembourg, but haven't been to France yet.  I'll have to do something about that!

Hello, everyone!  I’m pretty excited about my first full post and that you stopped by to take a look.  Starting a blog in summer lets me share some recent vacation fun with you.  I was certainly ready for a break, too!  My yearlong pharmacy residency ended and the following day I was on my first flight across the Atlantic.  I arrived in time to spend the summer solstice in Europe with the one I love.  What a way to ring in the summer!

One of our stops was Vianden, Luxembourg with its beautiful castle overlooking the charming little town.  Victor Hugo, author of Les Miserables, visited and enjoyed it so much that he lived here for a time.  The day started off cool and breezy but the sun was out making for a gorgeous day.  Hiking the trail from our little hotel to the castle warmed us up fast.  It made me glad to have opted for this denim Banana Republic shirt dress instead of pants.  I wear it often due to its versatility.  The trip involved a good deal of walking and I wanted something to pair easily with comfortable and casual shoes.  There are a great variety of denim shirt dresses and I’m a fan of many of them but I think this classic cut has proven its lasting power in my closet.  After all, I did buy it about 4 years ago.  I'd say that's pretty decent mileage!

Touring Vianden castle was a great way to spend the day taking photos and learning a little history.  My trusty denim dress was there for all of it.  What item in your closet do you wear year after year?  Share a little in the comments section.   Thanks a bunch for reading.  I’ll be posting again soon so hurry back!
