What I Wore Wednesday - Holiday Capsule Wardrobe Edition

pleated poppy
It has been months since I did a WIWW post, so what better way to get back into the swing of things than with a recap of my week in Hong Kong. As I said in a previous post, I created a capsule wardrobe for the Hong Kong trip, and it made life so easy - everything mixed and matched, and with the use of my accessories, I never felt bored. By the end of the trip, almost everything had been worn at least once. Since I am almost always the one taking pics on our trips, I feature only rarely in holiday snaps, so i don't have a pic for every day, but the ones I do have will give you a good idea how my capsule wardrobe panned out.



Our first day in Hong Kong was mostly spent sightseeing. While the weather wasn't overly hot, it was very humid (that is a sea of fog behind us) so this linen jersey assymetrical top was perfect as it was cool and breathable.
Black linen jersey tunic: Eileen Fisher
Black crops: Virtu
Black horn cuff: Etsy
Silver long necklace: Witchery
Silver short necklace: Pandora
Black sandals: Naturaliser


We spent the next day at Ocean Park, a huge theme park that also has some incredible animal enclosures (here are the pandas) and an enormous aquarium. Much less humid today, but much warmer, too!

Navy jersey tank: Eileen Fisher
Black crops: Virtu

Black, white and navy cotton scarf: Witchery
Black sandals: Naturaliser
Multicolored print backpack: LeSportsac



Dinner with the characters at Disney!! Disneyland was a lot of fun, and the kids were so excited to have dinner with the characters - Mickey was definitely their favourite. This CAbi tunic was perfect for Disney - light and comfortable for our time in the park, but also dressy enough to go to dinner without looking like a total slob.

Teal print tunic: CAbi
Black silky knit pants: Howard Showers
Silver bracelets: Tiffany
Silver necklace: Pandora 
Black suede wedges: Django & Juliette


See you all next week!!
