With my skiing holiday within touching distance I'm getting everything ready to pack into my case. There's not much to plan for this holiday, basically I just take about three pairs of jeans with various tops and jumpers, along with a tracksuit - skiing is quite laid-back so no fancy dresses or skirts will be accompanying me, I'll save them for the next holiday! 😏 Hopefully everything will fit into one case then I won't have to take a cabin bag with me. I like to travel light now-a-days! But it never used to be like that, have a read to see why!
This is such a funny story involving my best friend some thirty odd years ago ....
Both teenagers at the time and visiting my father in London. He was meeting us at Victoria Station. How grown up we felt travelling all that distance on our own! (an hour on the train) lol. We were dropped at the local station with our rather large suitcases (and I mean large) I'm giggling now as I recall the day. Yes we had ONE EACH to go to my dad's for the WEEKEND!!!
I remember his face when he met us from the train - bemused to say the least!
We had everything you could possibly imagine packed, jumpers, skirts, shoes, etc, etc. We were ready for every eventuality, for our
So now I like to travel with enough clothes, not too many. Taking one or two extra outfits for just-in-case! Preferably dresses or jumpsuits see my post on one piece packing.
With my best friend in mind - I was out with her on Saturday night, along with our posse (OH's, sister and brother-in-law). We went to a cook your own steak night at a local pub, you may remember
when I went before wearing floral & green.
I chose a casual but dressy outfit because it was in a pub, a small typical old English pub, that is quite cramped with a low ceiling and wooden beams.
Trousers just seemed right for the night.
I'd picked these beautiful jacquard trousers, that sit at the ankle to give a modern silhouette. Choosing my pink ankle boots and pink blouson style top I felt suitably stylish, matched & smart too. Finishing off with my Christmas present from hubby (that I'd dropped plenty of hints about). Having wanted a Chanel style jacket for a long time now, hubby was spot on with his pick.
This Hobbs tweed jacket has a mixture of subtle creams, corals and orange threads throughout it, with black braiding that trims the edges. Nipped in at the waist for a contemporary feel, it added that little bit of sophistication to my overall look.
Let's add another Chanel style to the mix - my Top Shop clutch bag, just big enough for a lipstick and phone.
