How my capsule travel wardrobe worked for my three day​​ trip

Ston Eastern Hotel

Isn’t it majestic? This is the rear facade leading to the parkland, orchards and vegetable gardens of Ston Easton Park Hotel in Somerset. We had a wonderful three night stay there. We explored the local area spending the first day in Bath and the second day visiting the beautiful cathedral in Wells.

The parkland around the hotel was so peaceful.

I thought that I would review how my capsule wardrobe worked for my three-day trip. I am happy to report that it worked very well indeed. If you are planning to visit this part of the UK in the near future the following pieces worked well during mercurial weather conditions.

Layers won the day:

It was sunny but with a very chilly wind. My jeans worked well for the first and last days. I wore my lilac sweater and lilac scarf on two days over my white tee shirt. The sweater is a fine Merino wool warm but also thin enough to wear under my blazer. My light coral cardicoat worked well under my Mac for a trip to Bath. For details of items I included in my suitcase refer to My travel capsule wardrobe.

Sitting in state in the main lounge. The interior design was perfect both honouring the history of the building whilst adding modern twists here and there. Several of you like the headband in a previous post. and asked where I had bought it. The answer was in St.Tropez market; I now have a couple available in the Chicatanyage scarf shop.

Layers were also useful for the evening. I wore my black slit dress/tunic the first evening, the red leopard print tunic the second evening both over black trousers. The last evening I wore my wider leg black trousers with a simple cream blouse. The last evening I even added my thermal vest as it got chilly later in the evening. I never travel without one.

I wore the scarves I had packed in rotation and they helped to add variation to my outfits especially in the evenings. Available at

Wells Cathedral

On the second day, we visited the magnificent Wells Cathedral. A wonderfully majestic edifice. You can read more about the history here.

    I remember visiting those beautiful places. Isn’t there a wonderful winding staircase in Welles or is it Bath? I recently went to NYC. Layers was the answer. I also wore scarves everyday.

    I hope you had time to take in the spa in Bath. It is so worth it.
