I know it sounds like a cliche, but autumn is my favourite season to dress for which ultimately makes it my favourite season to make packing lists for. I would completely fill my wardrobe with sweaters, boots, jackets, scarves and live in them all year if I could get away with it. So needless to say when the stores start turning over from summer to fall I get excited and inspired to dress for fall.
This weeks packing list is for Bruges, Belgium which has to be one of the most enchanting cities ever. I’ve come to the conclusion that while I think of my dream home as some uber modern penthouse flat, or an open concept industrial style warehouse apartment; I would really like a medieval stone house along the canal like in the header photo. Talk about one extreme to another ;)
I built this list a little different than usual. I usually pick a few neutral pieces, then add in some colour to round it out. This time I started with this fabulous purple jacket and then built everything around that. The rest of the pieces are mostly neutral in colour but some have a print to break the monotony that can go along with a small wardrobe when you want all the pieces to work together. Add in some shoes with one or two in a fun colour or print (I love leopard with purple and these leopard flats are Vionic’s which are super comfortable for walking), some weather appropriate accessories, and you have a well rounded packing capsule. This list is requested for 3 weeks but you can easily get more out of these pieces. I will put together the outfit options for next post.
My birthday is right around the corner which means that summer is on it’s way out. I’m not sure how I feel about this. On one hand I hate the heat, but on another I am not too sure that I am looking forward to cold and snow just yet. We had such a mild winter last year I have a feeling that it is going to be brutally cold this winter. I wish I could move some place more temperate for the season. Oh well, at least I don’t have to buy a new winter jacket or boots for me this year. I think the girls jackets will still work but they both may need new boots. (I can’t believe I am thinking about this already).
Can you believe that summer is more than half over?
