Packing: A Few Days in Scotland



From Paris to Scotland, just add sweaters and a trusty Barbour. Actually, if the weather continues its current miserable course, this wardrobe has many possibilities for Paris. Again today, my great pal, Janice, of the remarkable -- I'm running out of superlatives -- blog, The Vivienne Files, is back to entertain and inform us. We're so lucky.

Love the color tones of your wardrobe! perfect to complement a grey sky. Scotland will be my next destination. While in ireland, a couple of weeks ago, we met a few scotsmen and women who were staying in the same lodge as my friend and i . I loved their character, and they really enticed us to go and visit ireland. I tried so many Barbour jackets in ireland and it was really hard to resist temptation.... cannot wait to read about your trip.

WOW I love love this palette....bookmarking this, I can see myself wearing almost every single piece here!
Barbour jackets are so chic....you nailed it, enjoy...have yet to visit Scotland but its on my list to accomplish in the next year or so. Anyone I know who has gone has come back utterly smitten. Safe travels!

I know Scotland is'nt as rainy as it's reputation, but I would still make sure that the moccasins are rain proofed, because you never know. (Last time I was in Edinburgh, I got sunburnt! And that was end of March last year and the weather forecast was not only horrible, but horribly wrong!) I also never travel without a skirt, off course, this is because I love skirts, but in Scotland you could also end up at a ceilidh, and I prefer to wear skirts when dancing. Skirts go very well with Hunter's and Barbours :)

Somehow you keep hitting my favorite color combinations. Love this and the duffle is great!

Melrose is lovely, but if you've not tried the Wheatsheaf at Swinton then you're missing a trick.

And I say that as part of the competition (we run a hotel in Jedburgh in the Borders)...!

Once again, a lot of clothes, are they all necessary?
Unfortunately the colors are not mine.
I am having troubles with plaids and strips. Feeling like a downer now.
However, an excellent presentation from which to pick ideas.

kathy peck said...

Which model Barbour is that one? Nice selection of clothing.

Hello Tish

Some great outfits here. I would pack a short sleeved tee shirt and a pair of linen pants. You never know when the sun will emerge and it can be hot and remember there is no airconditioning. I have been caught many times with clothing that is way too warm.

Now I am wanting to take a trip to rural Scotland.

I posted recently about packing at middle age and how it's changed. It's mostly tongue in cheek. This is a great post with a lovely color combination of clothes. So many options!

Anonymous said...

way too many clothes. . .get ride of 30 percent and add some jeans!!

BigLittleWolf said...

These colors are strangely appealing (and a bit brooding?) - I like them!

Packing gets so tricky when the weather is unpredictable. (My travels back and forth to Benelux were a source of consternation in this regard.)

Scotland... A place I've never been, and would love to visit some day.

That's Not My Age said...

Another great colour combination - and waterproofs are a good idea if you're coming to the UK!

With the weather this year think winter or fall clothing - depending on which climate zone you live in with at least one or two sets for 20'C. Otherwise think warm, water-proff and wind-proff. Or maybe even survival gear? :-)

Find place for the rubber boots!

I do like the teal in this arrangement.

The Silver Bunny said...

I've always liked that combination of tan and teal blue. Scotland is beautiful, I adore it (though not driving along some of the extremely narrow roads!).

Here's a real Vivienne in Edinburgh, Scotland to say how much I enjoy Janice's posts. Love the colours today. You do have to allow for fluctuations in temperature here; we've had heavy rain but its not too cold. Barbour jacket is ideal but you might want to include a lighter, dressier jacket for sunny days. If you were coming here for real then it's a lot of stuff to pack when most of the time it'll be hidden under the Barbour but it does need a couple of short sleeved tees or tops, lighter trousers / skirt and a necklace or bracelet wouldn't go amiss either. You might also like an eye mask to help you sleep through the late sunsets and early dawns and last but not least Smidge, anti-midge lotion, http://2010.midgeforecast.co.uk/. Keep those wardrobe's coming, Janice, very inspirational!

Lesley said...

I come from Edinburgh. Can I recommend La Potinière, Main Street, Gullane for a beautiful meal.

Love the bag you've picked! Weather finally better here in Paris so definitely packing for Scotland ;)

I am going to Ireland in September. I have thought about taking my Hunter boots, but how to pack? Or since I am a gardener and love wellies maybe should buty some there. Any thoughts?

Tabitha said...

These are the clothes I need for autumn winter, yet I have none of them, I'm not very good at country dressing.

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Ah Scotland.
My favourite place on the planet.

Lovely colours. But these clothes are more suitable for early Spring or late Autumn rather than late June. You wouldnt need a hat, gloves and scarves or the polo tops. Why no dresses, skirts or sandals? Edinburgh is a cosmopolitan city like Paris or Milan, not a small country town- you dont need wellies to go sightseeing.
