Wednesday - planning for the weekend.

So as my title suggests I'm away for the weekend to Cornwall.
Off on a visit with family to see family.
I wonder what the weather will be like?  Last visit it rained and rained, so completely a very watery weekend was had.  Let's hope It's not going to be the same. (However, note to self take an umbrella or  raincoat!)
Going to try and pack 'light' this time, I always seem to pack way too much and my stylish idea of one overnight bag and one handbag turns into both of these and a plastic carrier bag with an extra pair of shoes, a wrap and extra make-up!  WON'T happen this time.

So here goes, first idea...
Two pairs of Jeans
One Jumper
One Dress
Extra Blouse
Two T Shirts
Baseball Trainers
Two Scarfs
Going out Shoes

Second idea...
One pair of Jeans
One pair of Trousers
Two T Shirrts
Two Dresses
One Jumper
One Scarf
One Pair Dressy shoes
One Blouse

Let's see how this pans out!!

Anyhow, back to today. Styling my new little purchase - much inspired Stripy Palazzo F & F trousers.
I choosen a plain white T shirt from good old Matalan, with H & M black blazer to keep it simple, Splashing a bit of colour with this gorgeous blue, white and green necklace, this was so difficult for me because I just wanted to match with any one of my pearl necklaces to keep with my normal monochrome look.  So I have tried - and what do you think?
The trouble is I don't really have many statement coloured pieces, eg bags, jackets, cardigans,  Will keep this in mind on my next shopping spree!

Hope you like how I've styled these fabulous striped palazzo trousers,

Why not nip over to see The pleated Poppy Linkup Here, and Today I am linking up with Tania on Wednesday’s Wardrobe. where you can visit  loads of brilliant blogs to get some amazing ideas.
