Elbow Patches

Even though the scenery in Da Lat is perfect for photo shoots, I didn’t really take outfit photos while I was there. Mostly because I was too busy taking pictures of other things, but also because my outfits were kind of uninspired. Functional, yes, but hardly blog-worthy. This outfit and the SIA one I posted on Monday are actually very representative of what I wore, so I didn’t see any point in taking outfit photos every day.

My packing list worked out pretty well, though. I only wish I had packed more T-shirts for layering. Da Lat is said to have four seasons in one day – spring in the morning, summer at noon, fall in the afternoon, and winter at night – so in the morning I just piled on the layers, only to peel them off one by one as the day went on, and then put them on again.

Also: apparently I had a thing for elbow patches while packing sweaters for this trip.

    All four seasons in one day? Pretty sure i would come home sick. It looks so interesting though. Almost like winter plants converging on summer plants. How cool. Also, there is no harm in loving elbow patches.

      Haha, yeah, I was shocked that I didn’t get sick! But honestly, the weather is so mild year-round (it only goes from 70’s to lower 60’s) that it doesn’t really matter.

  2. I’m so jealous! I love elbow patches, but I don’t have any items that have them. This is such a great outfit!

    I adore elbow patches on cardigans and sweaters! I really like the way you paired the plaid top with it, it looks great. 🙂

    On another note, you should take a look at the Style Confession Link-up, over on my blog http://sequinsandstyle.com/week-5-link-up. It’s a great way to meet and build relationships with other bloggers, as well discovering new blogs. 🙂


  4. Elbow patches!!! I have such a fondness for elbow patches. Must be the academic in me 🙂
