I was so envious today seeing Beth at Style Guile share her capsule wardrobe for a trip to Cornwall. Seems like no time since I was doing the same and in fact, when I got to thinking about it, I remember Lucy at Suburban Style doing a Cornish suitcase back in early July. Isn’t it funny how all three of us featured in the Daily Mail article in May and all three have ended up holidaying in Cornwall this year? Great stylish minds and all that :)
But my holiday is over now and I’m looking back on what I wore to see how well I worked my capsule suitcase contents. Here is a selection of my daily photos from the trip away. I’ve saved some photos for separate blog posts and there were some repeat wears – that’s why there aren’t 14 photos! The first photo was taken the day we arrived in gorgeous Looe and I’m sporting my Primark floral jeans – more on these coming soon!
A cool rainy day at the Eden project required the two (reluctant) last-minute additions to the suitcase. I had a re-think on the morning we left and removed two items (blue pumps & pink jeans) to make room for long boots & an anorak. And I was glad I did – they were necessary though thankfully just for one day.
My Wallis scarf was a perfect match with a navy H&M t-shirt and the pumps picked up the pink in the scarf. I wore my M&S denim jacket over this outfit on the cooler days.
Back in Berkshire for the next few photos and I went all-white for a scorching hot Sunday BBQ. Pictured with my godmother in this shot….
and she kindly brought along her Mulberry for me to try for size…perfect I think!
And this is the dress I wore to Basildon Park as featured in this post from last week:
Back in the blush lace top- this time with my navy quilted handbag from Vintage Pintage:
Finally, for the trip home, I wore my new Seasalt tunic:
Although I didn’t get photos of every outfit I wore, I did wear everything in the suitcase, except for one item – my blazer! It was just too formal to wear during our Cornwall week and the weather was too hot during our week in Berkshire. So it remained folded neatly in the suitcase. As for new clothes? I was v restrained and only purchased the tunic above and a scarf over the two weeks. Both will feature in future blogs, I promise
