Packing is never easy
The weather can be unpredictable, even if you go to the same places again and again. Now, I’ve been to Madeira around Christmas several times, and every time I felt I had packed too much and the wrong type of clothes. For example, last year it was quite windy and cold, and I wished I had packed more long-sleeved tops. So, this is what I did this time. And of course it was mostly nice and sunny and around 20°C / 68°F, which for me is summer weather…
Oh well, I’m adaptable. Fortunately, I also packed some t-shirts and light jackets, which would work for warmer weather, too.
jacket: Andiata (old) / t-shirt: H&M / jeans: Next / belt: Tosca Blu /
sunglasses: Prada / shoes: Clarks / bag: Chanel
location: Funchal, Madeira (The Vine Hotel roof terrace and Funchal town centre)

I have that exact jacket! THAT EXACT JACKET! This is so exciting: I never thought I'd dress like one of the cool kids!
No way! it's a Finnish label, didn't know they also sold it in the U.S. And thank you for calling me a cool kid…

Lovely ensemble… the classy jacket with the casual jeans and T-shirt. Nice tension which, as we know, adds interest to the outfit.Lovely background gah!Greetje
Thanks, Greetje. This is a typical outfit for me:some very casual elements with a more conservative / classy look. I like the mix.
I am horrible at packing too and I always check weather before I pack. Light layers really is the way to go and I love this casual and chic look with the tweed jacket.Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you next week. Have a great weekend!Alicewww.happinessatmidlife.com
Thanks, Alice. I always check the weather, and I still feel that I should have packed something else… strange, isn't it?
Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. I love the Chanel type jacket. It is lovely and looks great on you
Thanks, Nicole. I love tweed jackets, I just wish I could afford a real Chanel jacket… Well, a girl can dream, right?
