Yesterday I blogged about the paisley on paisley outfit I wore as I explored Nürnberg city with my tourist friends. The next day, we three travelled to Prague. It was the first time I had an all-girls trip, which was so fun. We stayed in there for three nights.
One of the outfits I wore in Prague was the beautiful Indian maxi skirt which a former Indian colleague gave me as a present in 2007.
For more than seven years this skirt slept in my closet and it also moved with me from Bangkok to Germany. Finally I found the courage to strut it to the street. After a long sleep, my gorgeous skirt has finally said “hi” to the world, but first, it said “Hi, to Prague.”
What I like about this skirt is its interesting print, but also its neutral, earthy hues. Even if the print is busy, their neutral colors make it easy to the eyes. It´s made of high quality cotton. It´s a floor-sweeping long skirt and since I stand 5`2”, the hems touch my toes. On the day I wore it, the temperature was 36 degrees C. With that heat, a long skirt wasn´t the best option. It exhausted me by noon.
I had a hard-time choosing a top to go with the skirt. But then this beige graphic tank top was the best option I had. I finished the outfit with slim strap thong sandals and an orange tote bag.
During our first day in Prague, as I and my girlfriends dined in a restaurant, we noticed that their women almost always wear a dress.
Their style is feminine and girly—pastel or bright colors, ruffles, fringes, cute prints and florals—and when they go out with a partner for a dinner date, even if it´s only to a nearly or a sidewalk restu, their dress code is cocktail dress. When the women are shopping or running errands, you´ll still spot them in a dress, probably dressed down in flat or platform sandals. Even their older and aging women still wear dresses!
So on our next day of exploring the city of Prague, my friend Daisy wore a maxi dress and I wore the Indian maxi skirt.
Prague is indeed a beautiful city. We took lots of photos on Charles Bridge, we climbed the Petřín Lookout Tower which strongly resembles the Eiffel Tower, we visited their two imperial castles (which we noticed kind of have a modern touch and are identical), we tried the popular Czech-Sweet-Bread, visited their shopping malls, and bought some souvenirs.
We love Prague, we enjoyed their beautiful sceneries and rich historical places, and we also liked their people who were generally friendly and helpful in giving directions.
