Tomorrow afternoon I’ll be jetting across the Tasman for a short trip home, with nothing but spending time with my family, catching up with old friends, and exploring Wellington with a fresh set of eyes in mind. Given that I’ll only be away for 9 days, and the last thing I really want to be doing is rummaging through my suitcase for that pair of jeans I was so certain I’d packed, I’m planning on packing on the lighter side of things.
Spring time in Wellington is generally still pretty crisp, so I’ll be packing away a few jackets, cosy knit sweaters and denim to keep the cold at bay. Oh, and my Acne canada scarf – which doubles as an extra blanket while on the plane.
As usual, I’ve opted to pack fairly casually, choosing denim, loose fitting knits, and a sturdy pair of boots, the perfect accompaniment for navigating Wellington’s hilly streets. So with that in mind, and in an attempt to be practical, I’m leaving the heels at home, packing easily interchangeable separates, and limiting the stripes quota to just the one piece (because I always pack too many). In my suitcase you’ll find….
Acne mape black leather jacket
Country Road longline grey cardigan
Country Road black merino sweater (mens)
Karla Spetic black/white fuzzy sweater
Ashley Fogel grey cashmere jumper
T by Alexander Wang long sleeve stripe top
Kate Sylvester black merino turtleneck
Madewell ivory sweater
Everlane blush silk blouse
Uniqlo cream/black spot blouse
Acne white t-shirt
Glassons black muscle tank
And with just enough space left in my suitcase for the odd treat, I’m hoping to pick up a little something special from one of my favourite Kiwi designers while I’m home, because when in Rome…
