Adam and I are off on a little holiday to Brisbane, Queensland in a few days time and we both can’t wait. It’s only for a few days, but we’re very much looking forward to some downtime by a pool and catching up with friends and family – some of whom we haven’t seen since we set off for England in 2016.
As with all my mini-breaks, I’ll be keeping my luggage to a minimum…
Our trip will consist of a car drive to Canberra, a night there with my brother, and then four nights in Brisbane. Unlike so many of our other holidays, we plan on keeping the agenda very slow. A few lunches and dinners out, but this week is about taking it easy – reading, napping and swimming. Weather is looking like a mix of sunshine and showers, with daytime temperatures between 29 and 30 degrees Celsius. Keeping that in mind, I’ve kept my packing list lean, light and casual. It’s a 15 piece capsule focusing on a colour palette of black, white, navy and khaki. As always everything I pack will be able to mixed and matched.
Here’s what I plan on packing:
1 x black and white stripe shell
1 x black sleeveless shell
3 x t-shirts (navy, white, grey)
1 x khaki cotton trousers
1 x light denim boyfriend jeans
1 x midi black and green sundress
1 x navy sleeveless t-shirt dress
1 x black and white strip one-piece swim suit
1 x black swim shorts
1 x wide brim straw hat
1 x black and tan sandals
1 x dark grey flip flops
Not included of course is underwear, pyjamas and toiletries.
I’m confident that mix will allow me to be comfortable enough on travel days, smart enough for a meal out and relaxed enough for the rest of our lazy time.
I’d love to get stuck into a good book while I’m poolside – so if you’ve got any recommendations, please leave them in the comments!
Have a wonderful week. x
