I’ve included late additions, please let me know if there’s any more – sorry for the delays (time differences)!
You have a pre-booked dinner date on the first day of your holiday. But the emergency is your luggage is delayed. So this month’s challenge is to style your travel outfit into a special evening look using whatever you carry in your purse and anything else immediately at hand (ie no running out to buy a new outfit!).
Jacket: dark navy knit H&M, Dress: ASOS, Necklace: vintage beaded, Belt: Hermes, Shoes: PPS, Bag: Hermes Lindy
Necklace: vintage costume jet beads, Wrap: Monsoon, Cuff: Hermes, Clutch: vintage Genny, Shoes: Lara Bohinc
I always carry my jewellery with me when I travel, so I just change necklaces to a sparkly jet string and reverse my Hermes belt to match the cuff (you can’t see but there is orange in the print of the dress). My clutch doubles up as a travel wallet so it’s always in my hand luggage or handbag. I usually carry a pashmina and a silk scarf so it was easy to throw this on. My tights are ditched and I change into these sandals to complete my evening look. I got into the habit of packing at least one spare pair of shoes with me from when I used to travel a lot and sometimes couldn’t unpack my luggage immediately so relied on essentials in my carry on bag – including toiletries (pre 9/11).
