Trousers: Tally Weijl (this season), Cardigan: Esprit, Top: H&M, Ankle Boots: Stravers (previous seasons)
When you are reading this I will be travelling to Holland (or maybe already be there); enjoying time with family and friends for the long Easter Weekend. You will understand that I have packed quite some Swiss chocolate for this specific trip. The chocolate is not standard for my journeys, but I do have some other standards I stick to when travelling. I always have the following 3 considerations in mind when choosing my outfits for a trip:
Are my clothes comfortable?
Are they wrinkle-friendly?
Can I create several outfits using a few pieces?
The third consideration is especially valid when I travel light (hand luggage only), but even if I travel by car or go away for a longer period, I tend to stick to all of these three self-imposed rules.
Today’s outfit is a good example of a perfect travelling outfit. My burgundy trousers are made of soft and stretch material, which makes them very comfortable to wear. The top is super wrinkle-friendly, as is the black cardigan. The layering makes the outfit comfortable warmth-wise, good in case temperatures vary (which is often the case when flying). Packing a matching dress, skirt, top and jumper will enlarge my choice of outfits enormously.
For the journey itself I will put on a pair of nude ballerinas or comfortable black shoes in stead of the shown ankle boots. They are best to take with me in a suitcase! I will also make sure to have a scarf at hand; great to protect my throat in case of a too strong climate control and cosy and warm if I want to doze off…
How about you? Are you travelling this weekend as well? I would love to read where you’re going and what your criteria are for picking and packing your outfits for a short trip.
