The highways stretch far and wide, and Barbie® doll followed her Mattel road map (included) to destinations far and wide! Her smart traveling outfit featured slim slacks in a red/black/gray stripe with back zipper. A beige wool short-sleeved shell sweater with back closure topped the pants, along with a matching khaki car coat with functioning toggles lined in a striped fabric. To keep her ponytail intact, Barbie® doll's straw hat attached to a red chiffon scarf that tied under her chin. (The hatband was of the matching red chiffon. ) She added a pair of red rimmed/blue lens sunglasses and cork wedgies with red "patent" uppers.
