The 2nd outfit only sees a change of shirt and earrings – as much as I was considering a softer print for the shirt, the idea of a flannel shirt in Ireland and England just makes TOO much sense to abandon!
The 3rd outfit – our indoor activities ensemble – gets a great scarf, and some fun socks. Never discount the possibility of socks as an ice-breaker for pub conversation!
As before, for a short (4 to 6 days) trip, this is really everything you need:
The pieces from the 3 initial outfits can be recombined in a few more ways, to give you a feeling of variety, or to be worn in different settings/weather conditions:
