I would say Happy Friday but for those that have to work and have unpleasant stuff to do it isn’t so happy, so I will say the week flew by and I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas. I’m actually disappointed that it is almost over 🙁

This post is the outfit options segment of the What to Pack for 10 Days in Washington DC from Wednesday. The request is for a mom who is chaperoning her sons trip to Washington D.C. in early April. I put together 20 outfit ideas to using the pieces from that list to cover a variety of outings. The requested list is for April which is an unpredictable month weather-wise so a coat of some sort should be brought. I included several sweaters for layering and a blazer as a light jacket/dressy options. A blazer is an easy way to instantly make your outfit look more put together so I suggest you get one for your wardrobe if you don’t already have one. They are very versatile.

For the colour palette I stuck with the basic neutrals and then added the jewel tones of a dark green and plum. Because the palette is neutral it is easy to match a more colourful and rich shade of a coat, which is a good way to add some fun to your outfits. For shoes I stuck with a basic flat, casual slip-ons, and a pair of leather boots which should take you through any outing or scenario. I hope this list gives you some good ideas.

Have good weekend (if you can) 🙂
