Edinburgh: Leather Jacket, Skinny Jeans and Converse Outfit Formula

I kept with my habit of getting dressed following easily repeatable outfit formulas while we were on our trip, it worked well with my travel wardrobe. Below I'm wearing the same bag, shoes, skinny jeans, leather jacket and a scarf, but the different tops and colourful jeans I've worn with each outfit make them look rather different.

What I wore:

TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

We went for a walk along Princess street on a rather wet day, and I hadn't yet found a place to take my outfit photo. I was so happy when we found this spot, with a beautiful view of the castle. Even though it was raining I braved the rain to get some pics before we ran undercover again. Such a wonderful view of Edinburgh castle!

We had lunch in Edinburgh after having a little browse in some stores - and a bit of shopping in Primark (we don't have it in Australia, it's kinda like Kmart!).

Afterwards I layered up a little bit more with my souvenir hoodie under my leather jacket to provide some cover from the rain and we hiked up Arthur Seat. It turned into a really clear day and we got great views, as well as surprising a few people at the summit who couldn't believe that the boys were walking up themselves.

Tee: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee (new purchase)

Why I wore it:

While I have a couple more outfits to share from our time in Scotland, this is what I wore for our trip home! The Edinburgh graphic tee I'd picked up in Primark a few days before, along with my comfy olive skinny jeans and Converse.

I wanted one last pic with this wonderful view before we left, although once again I've covered up the castle! 😂 At least you can see it on my tee!

This was a really comfortable outfit for the long trip home. The boys slept a lot more on the planes, with us departing from Heathrow in the evening, and then another evening flight from Singapore to Brisbane. We kinda lost a day in the middle of the travel with the time zone changes! Surprisingly I managed to keep this white tee mostly clean, and the marks it did get on it came out easily in the wash. For just $5 (£2.50) I was impressed with the quality.

How You Can Wear It:

Outfit formulas make dressing so easy, especially for a busy mum! Make a few small changes to your outfit - maybe different accessories, a different colour of jeans, and a different top, for something that feels completely new even if it's entirely inspired by what you wore the day before!

  1. I so agree that outfit formulas are the way to go, Mica! Both of these outfits look stylish and comfy, which is a definite must when travelling! I was impressed with your travel capsule wardrobe, Mica! Your choices were great and each piece complemented each other nicely. I must try and plan better when I travel next,because I always pack way too many things that don't end up complementing each other! ;) Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Mica! XXX

  3. I so love the leather jacket and skinny jeans combo. Looking great, and so jealous you can wear white during travel:D Wearing the Converse is so perfect with this as well, as you need comfy shoes for sure for travel.
    PS I need that travel wallet you have. And the ginger lollies are such a great idea. I probably need that for me more than the kiddos:D

  10. Accessories and jackets are really a great way to get more out of your travel wardrobe. I usually try to pick just 2 or maybe 3 shoes for a whole trip and match everything to them

  29. Outfit formulas are great every day not just on holiday right! Haha. I'm planning on going for a holiday soon and will definitely be using an outfit formula for the trip - so much easier to dress this way when kids are around right!
