*This is part of my Barcelona series, talking about my holiday, and my thoughts on where to go, what to eat and where to stay. To see all the posts so far, take a look here*
Travelling can make for some fun challenges with packing clothes. No changing your mind about what to wear if you’ve only got a choice of 5 things! We took only handluggage with us to Barcelona, so I spent a bit of time working out what to pack. I knew we’d be walking alot, so comfy shoes were essential. The temperatures could range from a nice sunny afternoon to a chilly night, and I’d want things that were a bit dressy for the evening too… I was pretty happy with my mix and match wardrobe for our 4 days. Lots of layers for when things warmed up a cooled down. OTK boots for a little bit of vamp, leather trousers for the evening, and a tartan scarf for colour. With this giant jumper dress for bundling up in the plane as well, I ended up wearing everything I packed. Yup, there are a fair few recycled items but that is way better than a £20 hold bag full of stuff I wouldn’t wear, hey. Are you an overpacker or a minimalist when it comes to your holidays?
