Even though it is only Wednesday this week has been crazy. Not anything notable, just a lot of stuff going on at the same time and I feel like my head is spinning. I wasn’t sure if I was going to finish this tonight because my schedule got thrown out of whack with a sick kid this afternoon but all is well, and I literally just finished these collages.

This week I have a request from a 40 something who is going on a month-long European vacation in August/September that includes London for two weeks, then Rome, Naples, and Sorento. Her style is fairly casual, but classic and she wanted me to include tees, jeans, a blazer, cardigan, leather moto, and some white low converse sneakers. Taking those pieces and adding in a few more to flush it out I think we have a pretty versatile wardrobe.

We have some key pieces for various temperatures and outings like jeans that can be cuffed and worn with a tank, hat, and sandals for hot days. Dresses that can be dressed up and down, and taken from the heat to cooler weather with layers. The black trousers are a cropped and slightly slouchy style that can both be casual and polished in hot temperatures. A moto jacket that will work for cooler nights or days, and a blazer that can pull together even the most casual outfit. The floral blouse, while it looks like it has a high neck, it actually has a tie there and opens up at the neck/upper chest area. The style is loose, and fabric is lightweight, and gauzy making it very comfortable to wear in summer (I tried it on in Zara).

I put together 18 outfits below to give you an idea of how versatile it can be. There were many more options that I could have put together but collages that are too big slow the post from loading quickly. I only included one t-shirt, but it is easy to include another one like you standard white tee that goes with everything. In hotter weather you may want an extra shirt if you aren’t going to have access to a washer very often.

Overall this wardrobe pulls together a lot of classic closet staples and veers away from trends so it will work for almost anyone. As you know I have been looking for a pair of sandals for this spring/summer and I kind of really like the ones that I included in this list. I find Birkenstocks to be extremely comfortable (for me) and with this ankle buckle they veer away from the traditional style that we all probably owned at some point in our lives 😉 Now to see if I can find them in Canada.

What is your take on Birks?

  1. Hi Sara, I asked you for this list and it’s amaze-balls! How did you know I love my Birkenstocks!! Only change I’d make is to swap out one pair of jeans for shorts but otherwise it’s perfection. I’m so excited to pack now! Okay, that’s far too many exclamation marks now…

    • Yes shorts are a good option if you are a shorts kind of person. I tend to avoid them so rarely include them, I don’t even know why that is. I’m glad you like the selections though. As for Birks, they are awesome and should be a wardrobe staple in my opinion.

      I hope you have a great time!

  2. OMG I live in London and you have really nailed this packing list. Perfect for all occasions and our very unpredictable weather! I think I have most of these bits, but am loving that stories tank dress and might have to check that out. Seriously hoping you can do my request for summer holiday a week in Washington DC and week on Hilton Head Island?

    • When are you going? It will help me figure out timelines of getting things done. I have quite a few summer requests but I might be able to fit it in somewhere.
