I pride myself on being a pretty dang good packer. I usually wear everything I bring, don’t overpack, and leave a little extra room for purchases on the way home. Yet I all but completely failed when it came to packing for our trip to Paris this fall, and didn’t realize it until we got there. While I pictured postcard-perfect 67-degree early September days, we instead hovered around 55 and raining. Oops.
Thankfully, I had thrown in one pair of “pants” with all of those dresses and skirts, and even more fortunately, they are what I’d consider the chicest pants I own: a pair of leather-detailed riding
pants leggings that local designer Avra Myers of A Ruby had sent me a couple months before.
Somehow, despite wearing these 5 out of 8 days of the trip, I failed to get any photos in them. Good thing I’ve also worn them twice a week in the two months since…
That vegan leather trim though.
A Ruby is having a pop-up in Boston THIS WEEK, and you know I’ll be headed there to buy these in
one two three more colors. Catch these chic basics November 27-29 and December 5 at Michelle Willey in the South End!
