Before starting with today’s fashion-ish post, a quick note to thank Jane for having us in their 5th wedding anniversary celebration, we love the Yoos! If you still haven’t, check the last wrap up post of the series featuring also my story of “what are some life lessons you learned from your partner?”
And now let’s move to a little more shallow topic: vacation time is at last around the corner, ha! Tomorrow is my last day of work, so very late this year, and I am already in suitcase planning mood because in a few days we will be leaving to Sintra and then to Wales – tuut tuut, one for each destination!
Although the planning of the trip is not yet closed – thanks for the recommendations! – I have moved over to the suitcase phase. However I’m still on the daydreaming which is the nicest of stages – relishing before I have to face my real wardrobe. I created two boards, one fore each of the travels: Sintra and Wales. I wish I could at least include one of the items in my real suitcase, but I think it may be too late to buy anything now. Mental note to myself, I should start working more towards this word: anticipation.
The first dreamy suitcase is for Sintra, an enchanting Portuguese town which is known for its whimsical castles and wonderland gardens. I always like to look girly and luckily in this case the castles more than deserve the romantic feeling, but I am also trying to pack a suitcase where all the pieces are working well together so you can create more outfits just by switching the shoes & accessories.
The second dreamt suitcase is for Wales, where we are going to visit the countryside rural areas, the beautiful pembrokeshire coast and some of the coastal towns. That’s why for this one I have divided the board into two moods, one which I would like to wear on a road trip – with a touch of red because it really pops with the green fields – and the second part with more nautical elements and feeling. I know it may be subtle the reference, but I have included one which is inspired in Life aquatic, and that alone makes me smile the most.
Do you have any suitcase organization tips? Do you have any tips of making work a cute but practical at the same time travelling outfits?
