How to create a capsule wardrobe for a weekend away

At last some freedom! We are now allowed to visit friends and relatives. The next two weekends we have plans in the diary. This weekend we will be heading up the motorway to visit my brother and his wife, who live near Chester. We will be staying Friday night at the Cardon Park Hotel. Today I have written a post on how to create a capsule wardrobe for a weekend away.

I will definitely be taking a waterproof coat and a pair of wellies. It seems to have been raining every day recently and I definitely don’t trust the weather. I think that I might take a pair of white jeans, surely at the end of May we can start to wear lighter colours. I will pack a midi skirt, probably my pleated grey one, plus a casual top, a cardigan and a pair of flats. These items will be the basics. I am sure that I will add a few more items plus some accessories.

Above I have put together a few ideas for you to consider. I just love the bright floral full skirt. So summery and cheerful.

For a more classic colour combination, I have created a navy and white capsule with a touch of red. I always think that a dress is an easy piece to pack when I am traveling. You can dress it up for the evening with jewellery. If it is chilly I often wear a tee-shirt underneath my dress. Alternatively, you can add a sweater or cardigan and transform your dress into a skirt.

    I must let you kno that here in Arizona, U.S. are sloly opening up. My husband and I have had our second shots and aited the recommended fifteen days. So our first outing (still earing our n95 masks) had lunch out at our favorite little place and ent to the book store. It as a little scary because I am so high risk. I have several life threatening medical diseases. But e really enjoyed ourselves. I came home ith several books and ordered a fe that I’m very excited about!

      Hello Natalie
      Glad to hear that you are beginning to get out a bit more. I actually went to see a film this afternoon with a friend. The cinema was only half full due to distancing.

    I like what you do very much and the fact that you know all about lovely Wales. What items do you recommend for a capsule wardrobe for two weeks in June/July staying in Newport Pembrokeshire – house near the beach. Thank you very much Pamela
