Build a "Six Pack" Travel Capsule Wardrobe - Using Another Velvet Swatch

This swatch is VERY similar to the one that I used Friday, but there are subtle color differences that I really wanted to explore. The subtle details can make all of the difference!

Every year, after the new year, when all the kids are back at school and the house quiets down, her spouse wants to go golfing...

A long weekend at the most talked-about golf resort of the current season.

She hates golf.

But she likes to sit in the garden and read. The staff keeps her well-supplied with drinks and tasty snacks...

She likes to walk around the neighborhood and take in all of the flowers, and the trees that still have leaves. It's a nice break from winter...

And she likes to take a nap every day!

"You're such a good sport about these trips..."

Being a golf widow isn't so bad....

  1. It's crazy how a few subtle tweaks change the wardrobe. These colors feel like they are made for each other, and suit my dusty, soft palette perfectly. This color combination feels very original and fresh as well.

  2. I love my golfing vacations, and struggle to find outfits that look right for high temperatures, but the season is fall or winter on the calendar...most hot-weather clothing tends toward the sunny, summer colours...this selection of muted tones fits the bill wonderfully! Thanks

    BTW, love the gold pocketbook, but it has no label or link yet : )

  6. I like these summery casual clothes in almost completely non-standard summery colours. Perfect for those of us who prefer dusty pastels, and nicely individual. Sounds like an enjoyable holiday too!

  7. Beautiful colour combinations, and very me I think. Much more subtle and less obvious than anything I would have come up with. Thank you! Linda M

  10. Lovely soft colors... you find the most amazing pieces to choose for your "start with art" wardrobes!

    p.s. I think she is a golf "widow" and not a "golf window"...
