Once I decided to banish black from my wardrobe, I couldn't decide whether navy, grey, brown and/or stone would become my new basics. At the moment I have several items in all four colours and I have already used navy as the basis of a capsule travel wardrobe. Although I have called this alternative travel capsule "peaches and cream", strictly speaking it is coral, yellow, brown and stone. We fashion bloggers do like to take liberties with accuracy for the sake of a catchy headline!
To recap, we are flying to Newcastle on 7th June for a family wedding and then having a holiday in Scotland - so, what should I pack? In theory the weather could be sunny and warm all week, however we can't rule out the possibility of cold weather and rain, which makes packing for our holiday a wee bit tricky!
The main colours in this capsule wardrobe are brown, coral, yellow and stone, however you may also spot the wildcard: my trusty navy jeans. I did think of choosing a skirt, however I have included a brown trouser suit that will be fine for smart daytime and evening wear, plus a floral dress, and there's something very comforting about having a pair of denims in case the weather turns chilly. I will pack an umbrella, no matter what the forecast is - having spent many rain-soaked summer holidays there, I don't trust Scottish weather! Do you have a favourite item that always gets packed, no matter where you are travelling to?
