Unexpectedly, a neutral colored cardigan called a 'Popcorn Jacket' provided the perfect travel companion on my recent holiday to Mexico.
(Not completely disregarding the husband of course!)
I usually wear a jacket to travel so I feel reasonably smart on arrival but an overnight flight meant that I needed something softer and more forgiving.
With a chilly early morning start the Popcorn jacket was light and soft but oh so snug! You can never go wrong with natural fibers of course and this little number is 75% cotton.
Whether it was pushed unceremoniously into my bag or used as a pillow - the Popcorn emerged looking considerably fresher than I did next morning.
Although I'd chosen plain ivory so it could team with everything, this jacket turned out to be so much more. I'd actually missed the delicate lacy design!
Like many of you, the base of my wardrobe has many different neutrals.
This delicately shady and lacy design (I think this is the popcorn pattern) happily tones with black, white, grey, blue and even denim.
More than just a travel companion, it provided a pretty and lightweight coverup for the evening too as it was versatile enough to work with denim, linen and even lace.
Exactly the mix and match-ability I need from my clothes!
I always add a warm blanket wrap for the drive to
and from the airport - bridging the inevitable climate change we have to face when we leave the UK looking for sunshine and, of course, an additional overnight comfort factor.
Fortunately, I neither want nor need an enormous wardrobe and I feel most at home when wearing classic basics.
So when I find an item that's comfortable and as versatile as the Popcorn jacket which proved itself ready to be dressed up or down in any climate, then I feel I've hit the jackpot.
