I haven’t posted for so long because I was away. Yup, it was a lovely trip, thanks!
And… my travel wardrobe was perfect – until about 2 weeks into the trip I was bored out of my mind wearing the same clothes over and over and went op-shopping. For the record, Goulburn has some great op-shops. My sister-in-law recommends one in Yass, but I didn’t manage to get there, sadly.
I was boringly strict about making sure everything matched absolutely everything else, and it worked brilliantly. Here is pretty much what I took:
Grey a-line skirt
A pinafore dress in a brown-purple.
4 t-shirts; green; grey; white; my favourite purple t-shirt with snoopy in the front.
2 long-sleeved t-shirts: turquoise; grey-green
1 long-sleeved top in soft blue
1 singlet: watermelon
1 pr lounging pyamas (which did wear to bed on occasion)
1 rayon sarong
1 lightweight red cardigan,
1 heavy-weight light blue cardigan
1 pr bright red velvet Mary Janes
1 pr blue-grey Mary-janes
A collection of hats and hosiery
I came home with all of the above except for the 2 prs of trousers – I didn’t like either enough to wear them up here in the dry season, so I just left them behind.
- gorgeous red and black cotton dress “Made in Roumania” on the swing tag 🙂
- dark brown with aqua floral print top courtesy of an op-shop in King’s Cross sydney. (My sister is jealous 😉
- blue and beige top – “Katies” via the op-shop in Goulburn.
So, the conclusion is, it is very convenient and works a treat to pack well, apart from the fact it is incredibly boring.
