If the idea of this bores you rigid then click away now, but I find it really interesting how my 'holiday' wardrobe works. The way I dress when I'm away differs slightly from how I dress at home and I enjoy the challenge of taking as little as possible.
At home my style can be quite eclectic and definitely depends on my mood. I seem to have different clothes personalities for different occasions/days, so am not too rigid about sticking to a specific style. On holiday, it's all about the comfort and the versatility of the components!
Here are photos of what got worn!
The success/failure of my holiday wardrobe definitely hinged on my black skirt and jeans. I always seem to stick to a favourite pair of trousers when away, so it's pointless taking more than one pair as I'm unlikely to chop and change. Risky, but in this case it worked out!
How I wore it!
Try not to look too closely at day three and home day, as I look a right scruff bag!
This is most definitely one of my most successful packs to date. I probably could have scaled down slightly on the tops and I did end up with some unworn stuff (listed below) but overall, not too bad! I shall be using this formula in the future for sure. Basically a couple of bottoms, a mix of tops, a couple of dresses and some cardis and jobs a good'n!
Ok, so if you know my makes, then you probably know how much I like stripes!
Just for my own amusement really, here's a totally stripey outfit that I didn't actually wear...
Dolores meets japanese shirt dress. I only wish I had some stripey tights to complete the look!
