3 Cities, 3 looks, 3 Seasons

Finally back from a few weeks of travel and fun with my other half over in Europe. It had been 18 months since returning back to the UK, and has made me realise I really miss being close to friends and family on that side of the world. I really wish I could just ‘pop’ home that bit more. Are any of you guys an expat and feel me? Life is too short, so a Christmas trip is already on the cards back in Cardiff. Possibly a cheeky week in Berlin too but will keep you posted on that!

Over the space of 2 weeks, we visited Rome, Barcelona, London, and my besties wedding in Spoleto. Having grown up in the UK, I knew packing for high summer would be a fail, but on the other hand it meant over packing for mixed seasons. Extra luggage fees and hauling bags unnecessarily is such a pain and will have to figure logistics better next time. Thankfully, the overweight luggage was needed as temperatures were all over the place city to city.

The metallic crisp look in Rome felt feminine romantic, and it’s fair to say the mornings felt more spring like than I had anticipated. Light layers and classic Gucci loafers for walking around the maze of perfectly formed cobbled streets. FYI, the flowers in Rome are so cheap, so couldn’t help treat myself to a bunch or two! For any of you heading to Italy this year, make the most of the Piazza’s, whether it’s for just a coffee break or to appreciate the architecture surrounding you.

Over in Barca, the temperature heated up. Urban vibes and beach lifestyle actually tempted us to pack our bags and move there permanently. The shopping and dining are on point, which meant a city chic look which could be styled more casually for the beach included bare shoulders and stripes. The look was finished off with my favourite Chloe bag and round sunnies.

In London, the rain and humidity were expected, which meant breathable fabrics were a must. Although it felt very sticky, it looked more like an autumn's day with the grey clouds and constant rainfall. This crochet detailed top was perfect for a British summer. Accessory for this look – umbrella. Standard!

I would love to hear your thoughts on my 3 city looks. More importantly, if anyone has tips or have read some great packing posts recently I would love to hear more in the comments section below. Packing for multiple seasons is so tough, I need guidance for future trips!
