Capsule wardrobe for South of France
I am getting ready to go to the South of France next week. Apparently, the weather has been a bit changeable recently according to my friends there. Also a reader informed me that there has been sporadic rain and high winds. So I am keeping my wardrobe simple. Keeping to a colour scheme means that all the pieces are interchangeable. I have not included a raincoat and umbrella as I keep those in France.
These are just ideas; you will need to adopt the principles to accommodate your current wardrobe depending on what countries you will be visiting and what you might be doing. The items I have chosen could be adapted to city or beach breaks with the addition of maybe swimsuits and kaftans and of course a packable mac just in case.
Details of above:
Blue linen dress MarksandSpencer / Parrot
More suggestions incorporating some warmer colour tones. I have tried the black sarong black skirt and it goes well over a swimsuit for the beach but can also be dressed up with a simple top and some jewellery for the evening. I can vouch that the Fitflop sandals are very comfortable and would be ideal for sight seeing trips.
