This is the last post in my capsule wardrobe series detailing what I was wearing on holiday in Madeira.
So far, you've seen the smart casual look for afternoon tea, the relaxed glam city look, and the casual chic look. This time, I'm taking you on a nature trail. Well, sort of.
This is what I was wearing on a day trip to Eira do Serrado, a mountaintop viewpoint. There was no hiking involved, just a brisk walk from the bus stop up to the viewpoint and back to the hotel / restaurant for lunch.
This wasn't my first (or even the second) visit here, and I always try to learn something from each visit. So, long sleeves, trousers and good walking shoes, that should work. And last year it was quite cold and I kept thinking I should have brought a warm jacket or some sort of light-weight coat.
And this time? I could definitely have done without the down jacket, and even a short-sleeved t-shirt would have been enough most of the day. In fact, this was perhaps my 4th visit, and the first time that I wasn't cold.
Well, that's the thing about weather: you never know how it's going turn out. But as I said, I always try to learn something and do better in the future. So, next time I will wear trousers / jeans / chinos of some sort, maybe trainers or hiking boots (if I remember to pack them), a scarf and a t-shirt. And I will bring a cardigan and some sort of a warm cover-up. That should prepare me for both a warm and a cold day.
