I confess, this outfit was not a good fit for the massive downpour that came the afternoon we visited the royal tombs of Hue. But I surely could not resist the crisp creme of the skirt and the soft embrace of the blouse. I was also excited to wear white now that we were no longer in the thick pollution of Saigon. And my practicality has never been able to wrestle off my vanity. I also felt like a modern princess twirling around with this fun scarf, so what if it became a not-so-good umbrella later.
