Isn’t holiday dressing the best*? Throw on a pretty dress, slip your feet into go-with-everything sandals, grab your bag and hit the streets! These days I use every single thing in my carry-on case (yep, still building that capsule wardrobe) so I like to think I’m a bit of a city break packing pro—this is what I took on our recent trip to Strasbourg and Colmar in France.
* Saying that I’m ready for autumn – jumpers and scarves and boots, oh my!
Day 1 – Strasbourg
I’m still mourning the loss of Aubin & Wills and snap up old pieces on eBay. I hunted for this denim dress for a particularly long time. Worn with my red Cambridge Satchel and comfy Saltwater Sandals, it’s a simple look that was perfect for exploring on a warm but cloudy day.
Day 2 – Colmar
I got a shirt dress in spring, when I won an Instagram competition to choose 12 items from Boden (I know!). In fact I got 2 versions of it because it’s so damn pretty and I think the blue one is very Zooey Deschanel in 500 Days of Summer i.e. no bad thing. These ‘outfit photos’ are just random holiday snaps so I don’t have a full-length shot but trust me, it’s trés belle. What do you pack for city breaks?
