Packing at the end of nearly two weeks on the road - interesting that some clothes were never worn. I never wear that primrose yellow silk shirt in London - let alone the leather look pencil skirt. So why did I think it might be a good idea in Italy? A bit of a waste of space....Odd choices.

This, on the other hand, was a very good idea - a Nicole Farhi silk dress bought for a snip at the end of season sale at House of Fraser, Westfield. Doesn't really crush and a very forgiving shade of deep green.
The blue linen shirt, in contract, creases terribly but I wore it so many times - who cares.
