What I wore on holiday12:42
Last week we travelled over to the dreaded England to spend a week with Dus' sister and her family. We love them so much that we're willing to spend the time in England, but are still trying to persuade them all to move to Wales. It's not working.
I took photos of my outfits each day because I was trying a capsule wardrobe and wanted to know if I actually wore everything I took or whether I didn't take everything I needed. I pack constantly in fear of not having enough clothes so this time I really took what I considered to be the bare minimum.
This is what I took.
1 x maxi dress
1 x skirt
1 x jeans
2 x cardigans
1 x blouse
7 x tops (mostly whites or neutrals)
1 x fleece
1 x pair of pyjamas
2 x scarves
1 x pair of sandals
1 x pair of ballet flats
1 x pair of converse
& the usual underwear
The only things I didn't wear were the ballet flats. I had to go and buy a hoodie and some joggers because I was cold! I forgot that we were going on holiday in August in the UK. Average temperatures of 18C (64F).
So here are my outfits.
|Jeans, white top, scarf, converse.|
My vanish oxi powder obviously works, look how bright and glowing my top is!
|Jeans, white top, scarf, sandals.|
|Skirt, vest top, cardigan, sandals.|
|Skirt, top, cardigan, sandals, scarf, sunglasses & ridiculously floppy sunhat. No, it wasn't sunny.|
|Maxi dress, cardigan, sandals, necklace|
|Jeans, top, blouse, cardigan, converse, necklace|
|Jeans, top, cardigan, slippers.|
|Jeans, top, scarf|
I only wore my white and blue scarf once and my maxi dress once. It was nice to have the options there though. My new hoodie and joggers I bought were perfect for the evenings when I was chilly. Next time I'll have to take them!
All in all, it still all fitted into one small bag, definitely much less than I usually take and because most things co-ordinated together I had lots of choice to feel as though I was wearing different outfits.
Here's a nice pic of Dus to finish the post, riding our nephew's balance bike down a scary little slope.
