I’m so excited about out up-coming Mediterranean cruise! It’s a sort of belated honeymoon, and I’ve never been on a cruise before. Plus it just sounds so cool when dropped casually into the conversation…
Its not a very formal cruise, so I don’t need to pack my ballgown. But I’ve tried to be clever with the limited luggage space we have. I’ve based my wardrobe around some basic neutral colours – black white and biscuit – with some accent colours of turquoise and coral.
Here’s what we have so far
Shoes: black flat sandals, beige pumps, brown leather thongs.
Crop trousers: biscuit, black, grey, turquoise
Shorts: Brown, burnt orange
Tops: striped white/ green/ blue halter, biscuit/ black African print, beige beaded, aqua linen, blue sequinned, white overshirt, black Tshirt, orange/ black silk cami
Swimwear: cobalt blue one piece, pale blue halter one piece, black white bikini bottoms/ bandeau top/ tankini top. Billabong turquoise/ white coverall. Pareos in coral with shell detail, and dip-dye turquoise/ black/ cream.
Dresses: Black, electric blue, cream/ brown, coral pleated, coral strapless with ruched hem, black with cream/ coral detail.
Cardis: brown, beige (matches the orange cami), grey, green shrug.
Travel trousers and jacket, bush hat and panama, water carrier, pacamac, jewellery in accent colours, fancy belt.
What I think I still need; I’d love a pair of bronze flat gladiator sandals, and maybe some wedge espadrilles in coral. And a big beaded coral necklace. I intend scouring the nearby charity shops to see what I can find in this line.
I’ll try to blog what I actually wear each day, to see if I can come up with a totally fabulous functional capsule!
