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
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 shop.chicatanyage.com.
On the second day, we visited the magnificent Wells Cathedral. A wonderfully majestic edifice. You can read more about the history here.
Leaving on the last day and sad to say goodbuy.
