Vegas wardrobe..

This post should probably be entitled: how I coped with a capsule wardrobe. Because I kind of did.
This is what I packed for the week, including travelling:


11 dresses, four pairs of shoes (1x trainers, 1x sandals, 1x wedges and 1x heels), 2 cardigans, 2 jumpers, 1 jacket and a small handbag for evenings. Accessories-wise I took 1 pair of sunglasses, 2x necklaces, 2x earrings and 1 bracelet. I also took my Grafea camera bag with me, as a daytime bag / hand luggage.

Sunglasses: F+F* // Dress: Handmade // Jumper: F+F* // Trainers: Liberty x Gola

I didn't really thing about taking photos until a little while into the trip, but hey ho. 

Dress: Handmade // Sequin Cardigan: H+M // Tights: ASOS

I didn't really know what the weather was going to be like at this time of year and it was a bit of a mixture. I wore everything I took with me; on some days I was glad of the long-sleeved jumper, whilst on some it was a good job I'd brought sunglasses. 

Dress: Handmade // Heels: Irregular Choice // Belt: vintage
Dress: Handmade // Leggings: Miss Selfridge

To be fair, there is nothing I took which I didn't wear, and yet I didn't wear any outfit twice. I got a lot of wear out of my Liberty trainers, which I wore most days with lace socks. I'm amazed at how well I coped but I don't think I'll be a capsule wardrobe convert anytime soon. 


  1. Bravo!!! Still ubiquitous Char but on a small scale!x

    1. It was weirdly refreshing and definitely didn't take as much time to decide what to wear in the morning.

  2. I always pack way too much to go on holiday and then have to take loads out- I don't need two outfits per day really!!

    1. I did try quite hard in order to leave myself some space to bring shopping home.

  3. Your Liberty trainers sound amazing. Haha I think there are more pics of you in flats in this post than on the rest of your blog! ;)
    Love the outfit with the map dress and IC shoes!

    1. I think that might be true. I took two pairs of heels too and wore those for the evenings, but for sightseeing flats were best. I love those trainers.

  4. Wow, you did well! I love all of these outfits, and those mint sandals are especially gorgeous. I usually pack about the same amount when i travel; i don't mind having limited options on holiday so much because i'm too busy having fun! xx

    1. Thanks, I'd almost forgotten about those jelly sandals and I'm so glad I took them.
