Anna writes: "Hi Outblush!! Thanks for all your help in the past - now I have a new task for you! I'm going to Germany with my family in August. It will be sort of early-fall weather there, highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s. We're doing lots of walking and tours - with a bunch of stops at bier gartens if my brother and I get our way! Generally, I live in dresses but it seems seasonably inappropriate. I'm on a hunt for some cute new jeans but I need your help with a new maxi dress, cute tops for my jeans (that I can wear in front of my parents!) and a great bold-colored crossbody bag to keep everything in. I'm thinking neutrals and some fall colors - nothing too beachy. I'm a size 4 in clothes and I'd like to spend $80 or less per piece on clothes and under $150 on the bag. Thanks so much! Your loyal stalker, Anna"
