Travel planning is part of the fun when embarking on a getaway.
A friend and I will be flying off to Italy and France in the next few weeks...
I want to be prepared for a variety of events and weather.
I am relying heavily on layers to do the job.
This is the list of things that I am mulling over.
Colour theme of basic black, grey and white.
All will fit into my Air France carry on.
I did not add all the scarves to my list
as I am trying to decide if I can be happy with one or two
which ones they may be are still to be decided.
This navy cashmere cardigan will go with all my clothes.
The silk scarf is a triangular shape and adds a bit of oomph to the basic items.
The coat I am packing is from Eileen Fisher
an olive green khaki shade...
there is some olive green in this scarf
as well as mustard yellow, blue, white, black and many more shades.
I can tie it to focus on the colours that I want to emphasize.
This long charcoal grey jacket is in a sturdy knit fabric
which can be also be worn as a coat.
It's from Bryn Walker
I am leaning to taking it as its very versatile and has two large pockets.
I've been busy roasting the tomatoes that my husband grew in his greenhouse.
The sweet and richness of roasted tomatoes is such a treat.
Very versatile over fish or pasta.
Can be served as a side dish...or on top of a sliced baguette.
I added these to a jar of quality Italian pomodoro sauce
simmered for about an hour before I
served it over pasta.
An absolute gastronomic delight!
Autumnal colourful flowers for the cottage...
I've discovered a new author
Am immersed in this lovely story...
it's a romantic story of two young people
who have a chance meeting in Florence while on holiday
and it moves back to London where their lives cross paths...
I am starting Part Two and am enjoying the story and writing immensely.
It's so refreshing when you discover a new author and I found out her next book "If Only" is due to come out in April of 2020.
What are you reading?
Have you discovered any new authors?
Do any of you seasoned travellers have advice you care to share when it comes to packing light for 3 weeks using only a carry on?
Thank you for stopping by The Humble Bungalow Blog.
