The more I am researching my ancestry and ancestry DNA the more pieces of the puzzle I am able to fit together, but also the more pieces I seem to be missing. It can be frustrating and emotionally taxing but it can also be very rewarding. If I hadn’t opened the door years ago I would never have known many aspects of my history, but there are also so many unanswered questions. It’s so hard to bite the bullet and send someone an email who is a close dna match asking them if they might know how you are related and then never receive a response or acknowledgement of any kind. When you have adoption in your family it makes placing how people might be related very hard and receiving no responses can be defeating. As it stands, what I have been able to piece together of my fathers birth dad is that he is probably from Eastern European ancestry, because all the people that I cannot place to a particular side of the family have Eastern European ancestry in common. It’s that possible missing link in my ancestry that has inspired this post.

Warsaw has a turbulent history. It’s Old Town was establish in the 13th century, but was almost obliterated during WWII. It was painstakingly rebuilt using as many old bricks and materials as possible, and the result is remarkable. Even the cobblestone streets were meticulously reconstructed and are now a Unesco protected site.

As for weather, the coldest month is February which averages -3°C, but has the lowest rainfall, and the hottest is July/August which average 18°C. The summer months are the wettest with June ranking highest. Depending on the time of year of travel your wardrobe will obviously differ. This one leans more towards fall and early winter. With a few changes it can easily accommodate any month.

Warsaw has risen out of it’s once ashes to become one of the top recommended European destinations. There is so much history throughout the city (and within day trips) so be sure to be respectful (when contemplating selfies and photographs at any memorials or remembrance sites). Walking tours are recommended throughout the city so be sure to pack a comfortable walking shoe.

Warsaw was also the birthplace of Chopin and there are many places named after/dedicated to him, even the airport. Have you ever been?

*To go along with the pieces in the above packing list I put together 14 outfit options located directly below. So many more outfits can be combined with the pieces, these are just and example. I hope you enjoy.

  1. I just want to say thank you. You are so good at this, Sara. I so appreciate the unique outfits you put together, but also the personal nature of your posts. We all have to wear clothes and it’s nice to look kind of pulled together, but you make it seem easier to apply than most – your looks can appeal to so many styles, sizes of body etc. – and they feel good and boost self esteem. When I read your posts I don’t feel envy or a jolt of unhealthy acquisitiveness – I just feel like a friend gave me a really hot tip. Thanks.

    • You know what? That’s probably one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me so thank you. I appreciate it. I don’t want people to ever feel like something is unattainable with my posts. Just the opposite. I worked in retail for a million years and women coming in lost and not knowing even where to begin was the norm more often than not. I always found that when things were put into outfits people would gravitate towards them. Seeing how a piece can be worn vs hanging on a hanger helped people visualize how they might be able to wear it too. So that’s what we’d do. We’d pair the pieces they were interested in and make outfits for them to try on with pieces similar to what they owned. It allowed them to walk out with confidence and the knowledge that they would wear the piece, it wouldn’t just sit lost in their wardrobe. I try to implement the same ideas here :)

  2. I’m glad I wrote, then! I usually lurk – but I get so much out of your posts that I had to say something. I wore a scarf you had recommended last spring to a family gathering the other day and was told I looked very chic, which, for a park mom/tomboy, was a first. :D ooh la la. Have you seen/read Amy Shumer’s experience of working with a stylist? It’s really moving. How she taught her to love her body and her uniqueness. It can be a powerful journey, especially when the alternative is either ‘giving up’ or wearing something that is totally not you.

    Thanks again and have a great day.

    • I haven’t but I’m going to. Thanks for the recommendation…,.and being called chic is flattering isn’t it? :)
