Holiday Capsule Wardrobe 2: Relaxed Glam

tweed and jeans

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… 

smart casual tweed

Oh well, I’m adaptable. Fortunately, I also packed some t-shirts and light jackets, which would work for warmer weather, too.

Outfit details:

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)

      Thanks, Greetje. This is a typical outfit for me:some very casual elements with a more conservative / classy look. I like the mix.

      Thanks, Alice. I always check the weather, and I still feel that I should have packed something else… strange, isn't it?
