I don't have many clothes like these in my wardrobe, but I would be quite happy to pack any of them for my Spring holiday. If you take a look at my Polyvore set by clicking on the link, you will see that most of these items aren't particularly expensive, as I know from experience how frustrating it can be to spot items on a blog that I love - only to discover that they are way over my budget!
Can you guess which is the most expensive item in this holiday capsule? No, it's not the Mango grey blazer, as that only costs €48 from John Lewis, which means it's even cheaper than the red striped t-shirt from Gap at €50. The navy Nine West kitten heels are also a bargain at €38, having been reduced by €19, so it's not them either. The most expensive item - at a price of €190 - is the Radley Aldgate leather handbag. If I was going to take this capsule on holiday I wouldn't splash out on the handbag though. Instead I would use the money to buy all six tops plus the blue open front blazer, taking me slightly over budget at €196.64.
My reasoning is that I already have a perfectly good grey and navy satchel that would go well with the above capsule, as well as bags in different colours that would match the other holiday capsules that I have been considering. If it wasn't for that I might seriously consider buying the handbag,: it is worth spending more money on good quality accessories in neutral colours that won't date and that should last you for several years.
If this was my holiday capsule I would throw in a couple of scarves, but I know from her comments that Robin wouldn't do so. She might like to consider adding a couple of necklaces or bracelets though, especially if going out for dinner in the evening. Nowadays, even in cities, women can usually get away with wearing trousers in the evening, especially with a dressy top and a pair of heels. However, if I was going to pack this capsule for my forthcoming Spring holiday, I would probably add my new blue dress in case we decide to dine out in a particularly smart restaurant. When we go on holiday, we usually like to have at least one occasion where we dress up a bit.
