I almost forgot to post this. Long weekends throw me off and I totally thought it was Saturday (when I don’t usually post) so I neglected to publish this until now.
When I do the “What to Wear” posts I generally have two large collages with 10-12 outfits on each one, but this week I have changed it just a little. Since this trip is for 10 days there really isn’t any need for 25-30 outfit so I made one collage with 18 options. There is still definitely a lot more that you can put together with the pieces from the What to Pack for Madrid, Spain in summer packing light list from last day. These are just a general idea of what types of outfits you can wear for various outings.
During the summer months Madrid is quite hot and humid so packing lightweight, loose, and comfortable clothing is key. Dresses, wide leg pants, shorts, and light denim (for cooler indoors and nighttime) are the basics. Then add in a mixture of tops, a sweater, and some shoes, and accessories (don’t forget the hat). I like items that can be used in different ways like the shirt dress, which has several uses besides a dress. It can be worn as a swimsuit cover, layered under a sweater, and worn open over other dresses, shorts, or pants. Versatile pieces allow you to stretch out your travel wardrobe and become more creative which is what packing light is all about.
If you are heading out for a warm weather destination soon let me know what your must bring wardrobe piece is. I’d love to hear what everyone’s favourites are.
Have a great long weekend guys!
