Another trip to Barcelona, another travel wardrobe post…
Let’s keep it simple: how to pack as little as possible and stay as comfortable as possible in hot temperatures…
Well, that was the goal. Although I’m definitely not an expert on hot temperatures, given that anything over 25°C / 77°F makes me want to stay indoors with the air con on…
But, seriously, how to pack as little as possible and stay as comfortable as possible?
Right, first we choose the accessories, to be worn with everything: my favourite pair of Prada sunglasses, a white crossbody bag (= pickpocket safe) and sandals (plus a pair of flats, just in case).
Then clothes, for maximum sun protection: I prefer trousers as they cover as much of my skin as possible. For the record, I’m not a prude, I just have very fair and sensitive skin that burns easily. And I hate sunscreen.
This time I opted for pinstripe silk-mix trousers. They weigh absolutely nothing and take hardly any space in my cabin luggage. And they don’t wrinkle, either, as I just roll them up.
And then it’s just a matter of packing a few t-shirts that go with the trousers, and maybe some jewellery to spice things up a bit.
But when it comes to putting together a travel wardrobe for hot temperatures, nothing beats the kaftan dress. It’s made of rather thick viscose, which is as cool and comfortable as cotton but much less sticky. And this kaftan dress is a real wash-and-wear piece; drip-dry, no ironing needed. And it packs well, too (rolled up, not folded). It’s perfect, in other words. I’ll wear this all summer, you’ll get so bored with my posts…
