Our trip from London, through to Paris and then Amsterdam lasted ten days which was the longest we'd traveled as a family. Tom and I had a rucksack each for all our things which included about five outfits each and about ten for Wilf because his don't tend to stay that clean!
It was quite tricky to work out what to bring because I tend to dress for what mood I'm in that day and something I think I might really fancy wearing one day I might not want to look at a week later. I'm not usually a jeans type of girl but I packed my black levi's as I felt they were the most versatile item to fit with different pieces.
One of the items I was really glad to have packed was this shirt dress pictured above from Anthropologie. I hate travelling in clothes that feel restrictive or too hot so I wore it during our journey from Paris to Amsterdam and also once during a beautifully warm day on the rooftop in Paris.
I'm also really glad I picked my new trench as its such a classic piece that went with pretty much anything. I was really feeling the comfy understated city vibe whilst I was there and just throwing this over a breton striped T I found in a vintage shop there and it made me immediately feel a bit less scruffy!
I've recently gotten into shirts and I picked this cute one up from Ebay. I always do this weird thing where I wear dresses all winter and come spring I'm like 'I might try some jeans again' I think I have my seasons mixed up.
People generally say when traveling you should wear neutral or darker shades as you don't know what the culture or styles are. I have to say this was definitely the case when I visited Berlin a few weeks back. I stuck out like a sore thumb in my bright pinks and yellows against the greys and blacks! I feel like maybe I'm almost growing up wearing a bit more of a understated look..maybe
