I love monochrome colours. Black and white/cream is always chic. You can add a dash of colour with jewellery and scarves. It is an easy combination for a short trip. You can guarantee to make a multiple of outfits with the addition of a couple of accent colours. On my recent trip to France I made up a capsule travel wardrobe consisting of a white T shirt, black skirt, cream and/or white shirt and black and white chevron print trousers. As you will know if you read this blog regularly I have a large wardrobe of colourful scarves to ring the changes.
Super stylish and easy to wear the trousers in the photos are available here Tribal print Jacquard trouser. They have a tapered leg and the waistband has hidden elastic for comfort. Available in Sizes 12 to 26.
The black skirt is in a soft jersey fabric with a basque elasticated waistband. Jersey maxi skirt. Sizes 12 to 22.
I packed in a very small carry on bag and they both came out without a crease.
Now for the footwear. I think I wore these sandals nearly ever day on my recent trip. They are extremely light and comfortable.
Our village is situated on a hill and has traditional cobble stones so you need a sturdy pair of shoes if you are not going to trip up and fall over. Heels are a no no. They also worked well for the beach and the rough stoney paths of the hills where we like to go for long walks.
Marc Jacobs sandals
Love your pants and I have a blouse exactly like the one you are wearing with them. These are great summer styles!
I love the skirt and the trousers – I’ve never bought anything from Marisota – I must have a look. You look great – chic but comfortable.
I love reading about peoples capsule wardrobes and agree yours is very chic x
Love love love white shirts, blouses, tops! Love the simple black and white. Always chic, always my go to. You look wonderful.
Pink is not one of my usual colors, but these outfits are just lovely. Could even inspire me to begin the search for the “right” pink trench!
