After a blessedly uneventful travel day yesterday, we are now happily settled into our new, Bohemian (har har) home - Prague! While our long stay in Berlin was wonderful, allowing us the luxury of time to explore the city and even begin to feel like quasi-locals, there is still a definite thrill that comes with arriving in a new country, with a new currency and language, new sights to see, and in this case, perhaps even a few new beers to sample down by the riverfront.

When deciding what to wear to explore a new city, generally the first thing I pick out is a pair of shoes. It's essential to wear something comfortable enough for a lot of walking, and since today's forecast called for rain, I went with these reasonably quick-drying canvas sneakers. I didn't quite know what to pair them with at first - I tend to wear them most often with skinny jeans, but with the cooler temperatures of the last week I've grown a little weary of pants, and the high humidity of the morning seemed to call for something lighter - but then I remembered this outfit of Jen's that I pinned ages ago, and immediately reached for my chambray shirt and a bright coral skirt. Looking at it now, it's funny just how faithfully I recreated the details of her outfit, right down to the cross-body bag and the silver bracelets.

Emily, you look fantastic! I love that skirt so much, and I'm always so glad that you chopped it up! I can't wait to see more of Prague. I live in Germany for 7ish years and it was awesome to see Berlin, and now I'm excited to see a new place :)

How long were you in Berlin? And are you working while you are traveling (is that you're able to stay for so long in these places)? And I love the way you recreated the look!

Love hearing about your travels, it's awesome! 
If you get over to Switzerland the Blonde 25 beer is my favorite beer ever.
