Can you believe it. We are finally going to Madrid for my Hen do. I can wait. Madrid is one of those magical places that feels big and small at the same time.
Full of history, bars and restaurants I can’t think of any where I would rather go. I know the girls are going to love it but we are all praying that its not too hot. Any temperature above 24 degrees and there is going to be issues. At the moment it is 35 degrees.
So packing is going to be tricky!
Packing for all possibilities
Pretty sure that Becky has a few outfits for me so not sure what I need to pack. Thank fully she is letting me not Gavin pack.
I am a packing addict. It makes me happy. So the idea of Gavin packing my clothes filled me with dread. No offence to him.
I didn’t need any new items for this trip however I managed to pick up a few tee shirts from MnS in their contentious cotton range that sung to me.
Things to bear in mind. It is going to be hot and although I will wear factor 30 I still may get burnt. This isn’t good but a coverup is always useful. I will definitely want to change in the evening.
Cotton trousers to travel in (Emma hill I listened)
- Pink cotton Vacation tee shirt
- Sports bra crop top think from Primark ( I love these)
- Thin Jumper ( I get cold on planes)
- Summer Jacket
My hand luggage is going to be minimal this time.
Outfits, the funny thing was when I was laying out my clothes I put far too much out! So photographing and planning this out has helped me slim down my choices.
- Tropical black dress (for evenings or day)? Still deciding about this.
- Pink cropped Jeans
- Navy Shorts
- White Tshirt that says the world is your lobster
- Navy and white vest
- Gold sequin Zara vest For going out out can team up with pink jeans or navy shorts for a cute look
- Tropical jigsaw soft Hawaiian dress
- Black tropical dress for days or nights
Tan bag it goes with everything
Flat Espadrilles we will be walking
Tan tom toms sandals I can walk in them and they are slip on
Silver/ gold sandals for out out occasion
Pink block heals that are also cute but I haven’t worn them yet so still deciding
A cute little rope belt
My prescription sunglasses which are a must for being able to see, write draw ( don’t think I will have time) and protect my eyes.
A loose white linen shirt. If I get burnt I can drape it on my shoulders without sweating to death.
That is pretty much it.
I don’t need to take a lot and I don’t really like to take too much, plus I would like to pick a bottle of gin for the collection.
I use packing cubes to put everything in. I have even put my makeup and beauty bag in a packing cube so I can scoop it out when we arrive.
Thursday the hen do begins and I can’t wait.
