Mid spring. Cool nights, daytime highs from 20C right up to 30C
Expected activities:Veeeery casual island lifestyle; swimming, walking on the beach, cycling, bbq's and some dinners at the pub.
Colour scheme: nearly all !Brights! and with the freshness of white and just a touch of black
What I packed: (click on each garment name to link to its original construction post)
(left to right; top to bottom)
green/ultramarine ballet flats, a gift from Misano
pink thongs, KMart
straw hat, Country Road
This was a great assortment for a fun and relaxed family beachy holiday; I stepped out of my comfort zone with all those !brights! and was pretty pleased I had done so. All my ensembles felt cheerful and happy; and vibrant in the brilliant sunlight.
In retrospect, having two white shirts on such a short holiday, I felt like I was doubling up too much and had less choice. I love love love white shirts with the deepest passion imaginable; but I think an improvement would have been to substitute one with one of another colour, for a bit more variety.
The raincoat was useful for, oh let me think, about a minute? total? but I wore it as a "cardigan" for one day, so it didn't go unloved. It's best to pack it at this time of year, just in case...
and on a sad note, my pink thongs broke during the holiday, so in a spur-of-the-moment holiday purchase...
Welcome newbie scarlet thongs; may you live long and prosper....
(and yes, the outfit in yesterday's post was a part of this travel mini-series too... :) )
