So first and foremost I think I figured out how to get my daughter to keep her room clean. We were moving things around in it yesterday and there was a bug on her floor. It was a run of the mill little beetle that obviously hitched a ride inside somehow, but I let her think it was from the dirty room. I have told her repeatedly that if she lets her room get bad that she will get bugs and now that she thinks that’s what happened. She spent the entire day today vacuuming, dusting, and Lysoling every surface. I think she may have learned her lesson ;)
Now on to part 2 of the What to Pack for Wales post. The outfit options portion with 10 at the top of the page and 10 at the bottom using just the pieces from last post’s list. Wales is one of the wettest countries in Europe so I made sure to include a low cut rain boot (less clunky and easier to pack) and a water resistant jacket.
For all of the pieces I used to make these outfits you can refer to the original post or check out the breakdown below. As per usual, it is easy to substitute any item in the list for something comparable in your own tastes.
- Six tops in varying cuts, colours, and styles (one graphic tee, one striped shirt, one blouse, a wrap shirt, one long sleeve (in merino wool which is great for travel), and a kimono top (which also doubles as a blazer/cardigan when left open).
- Two sweaters (a black oversized, and a more fitted, grey pullover in cashmere), and a cape/cardigan.
- Three bottoms; one pair of casual lightly distressed jeans, a dark, dressier denim, and some black trousers.
- One dress in a style that can easily be dressed up if necessary.
- One jacket; a water-resistant style is recommended if you plan on doing a lot of outside touring.
- For accessories, I chose a wool hat (a knit one would also be a great option), a couple of scarves in a light and heavy knit, and my go-to is sunnies but in a city with a lot of overcast and rainy days than you may want to forget them.
- Three pairs of shoes including your travel pair. I chose a pair of boots, flats, and a low-cut rain boot.
- Two bags, one large tote style, and one small crossbody/shoulder bag style.
This trip is for 14 days but as you can see by the outfit options that it can stretch out much longer than that with access to laundry. There are more different outfit combinations that can be made as well but the week has been busy so I stopped with 20.
I hope you like it and find some inspiration, but now I have to go because my daughter set off the alarm with a burnt toaster strudel.
