Lately I have wanted to add a little more colour to my wardrobe lately. I still love my mostly black and grey but once in a while I’d like to add some colour aside from red nails or lips. I do have red rain boots so that is a start 😉 I fell in love with a red jacket in Zara a few days ago but have danced around getting it because we won’t be in jacket season for much longer. So I am trying to be more practical and get some pieces that I will be able to wear through the spring/summer season as well as fall/winter. So when I was making this list I included a yellow, striped, wrap top that I have eyeballed for the last 2 months (or so) and think that I might make the splurge. Yellow is one of my favourite colours and I love a wrap shirt, it will work really well in the summer. What do you think? Do you like it?

This week I made a packing list for Cornwall, England in May. Cornwall is one of the most scenic places in England, as well as one of the sunniest. It is located on the southernmost tip it so it has the longest stretch of continuous coastline in the country which means lots of lovely villages and blue water. Cornwall’s average temperature in May is around 11°C with highs of 14°C and lows of 8°C. If you look at the predicted weather they show it potentially being warmer than average with a range of late teens to early 20’s °C, so it would be best to check the weather closely so you can pack more appropriate for the weather. With averages of 11°C I would pack a slightly heavier jacket than if the temps are between 17-21°C. For this list I included a lighter jacket but definitely watch the weather and use your discretion because it is really hard to predict weather in the UK. It might be wise to bring something waterproof or at least water-resistant.

*Remember that layers are key for unpredictable weather.

Don’t forget to bring sunscreen and read up on the water/coastline safety for the area.
