I find choosing outfits to travel in so difficult when you're going from the cold to the (hopefully!) heat. I'm getting picked up by my friend at 7.15am & judging by the current temperatures, it's going to be baltic again so I've got to be warm this end but not so much that I'm going to swelter within 3 minutes of getting off the plane because let's face it, with 25°c plus temperatures & menopausal hot flushes, this is very possible!
So I had a trial run & this is what I decided on in the end. The jeans are the relaxed skinny by Next which I love the look of but I'm having a wee problem with them. When I tried them on instore, they fitted perfectly so I bought them & put them on the next day. By the end of the day though they had really stretched & I mean really - I could pull them down without having to undo the zip or button, surely not right after one wear?!! So I'll have to pop back to town & either get a smaller size or swap for a different style.
The navy longline tee shirt was bought in Gap last year but this is similar & let's face it, anything that covers the arse is a good thing in my book! The open jacket I bought in Next a few weeks back but I can't find it online so it must be last season stock - this is a great alternative.
You may have seen my coral Freckle Ice shoes from Clarks on Instagram the other day. This is my fourth pair of these now, they're so comfortable - please don't ever discontinue them Clarks!! And the saddle bag is also from Clarks but is now sold out - this one is similar.
Accessories wise, there's no point wearing loads of things that'll have to be removed at security so I'm just sticking to my gorgeous burnt orange leopard scarf from Alice's Wonders, handy for chilly mornings & planes, and my turquoise stretchy bead bracelets from Accessorize. I can't find these online but layer up a few of these & you get the idea!
This is a close-up of the jacket, which I'm really pleased with. I can wear it over any of my holiday outfits, it's especially handy for night time & I'll also be taking it to New York next month.
So there we have it, nothing exceptional or fancy but it's comfortable & practical - oh god, I sound like my mum.....!!! ;)
What's your favourite thing to wear when travelling?
