Easter Break Capsule wardrobe

As it is only just over a week until school breaks up for Easter (how did that come round so fast!) I am thinking about my longed for few days away. We are heading to a house in Cornwall so that we can spend some time by the sea blowing the cobwebs away before the girls get into serious revision for GCSE and A Levels. So of course that means planning a capsule wardrobe for the trip.

I’m not expecting the weather to be great so I will be packing layers, a raincoat and some warm jumpers. But just in case we are lucky I will also be taking T-shirts. It will be a pretty casual holiday so jeans will mostly be in order but for eating out in the evenings I will take a few extra accessories and a pair of heels. I’ve created 7 day outfits and 6 evening outfits although the likelihood is I won’t actually need that many changes for the evening but at least it gives me options.

I’ve chosen monochrome, Sand and Red for the colour scheme.

Here are the capsule wardrobe pieces:

If you are going away over Easter and would me to create a week’s capsule wardrobe for you, choose the 10 outfit wardrobe – but be quick or I may already be chilling out with my book and a glass of wine!

    Hi Maria, Oh you have spoilt us this week, I love all these outfits…. I have offered to help my Dad with decorating over the Easter weekend as he has reached the grand age of 82 & he finds it a struggle to wallpaper on his own, so its old jeans & a tee for me.. & instead of an Easter Egg this year, I’m going to wish for the red Micheal Kors drawstring bag it is simply beautiful… Enjoy your break & I hope the weather is good for you… Debbie

      Thanks Debbie, I hope the Easter Bunny is kind and brings you that red bag! I have a red bag shaped hole in my wardrobe too. Have a good weekend.
