As I mentioned last time, its all about layers, particularly thin materials as they take up less room, and with what little storage you’ve got, space is half the battle. Every time I’ve come back from a holiday, people ask me same question “How much luggage did you take?” My answer: I’ve got the same language allowance of 20kg like everyone else!
The hoodie, hat, gloves, scarf and leggings I bought locally were particularly for climbing Rainbow Mountain. They were colourful, fitting quite nicely with the scenery.
For my trip to Peru I chose comfortable clothing and added some stuff from the latest trends such as a lace skirt, but most were basic. I made sure to pack colourful overall, ended up making good use of this red dress in Machu Picchu!
On my trip to Lake Titicaca, I took an old skirt which I thought would suit the culture there. This collaged piece is quite in fashion right now. And the lace skirt, of course, has been hot for a couple of years.
To all the people that advised me to dress for comfort – you weren’t trying hard enough! There’s always room for some fashion if you put in the effort and apply some creativity, like this shot below! Wearing my jeans with the laced skirt over the top really brought out the flair. What do you think of it? 🙂
Coincidently I brought a pair of yellow trousers and a yellow dress, so I just blended into the yellow city Lima.
As I said, it’s about layers, as weather changes from morning to evening. Wearing multiple layers lets you shed a few to shoot different photos in the same day!
These striped trousers are actually a decade old, and it really goes to show that some pieces are timeless and should never be thrown away.
Oh, I love this photo bomb. It is so funny. Look at her, walking with confidence, she’s wonderful!
How does this purple look? I thought it blended in well with the wall flowers 🙂 I just love the colour and wind.
Yes, a Peru T shirt, how could I does not buy it? It goes well with my HM shirt and shorts.
These photos below are just a compilation of different days.
And then my last day in Peru-Cusco. I found this jumper at the local market, absolutely love it 🙂
I hope you enjoyed my post and found it inspiring! Just play, mix and match, have fun and sometimes you will surprise yourself, believe me!
