Attending the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is an inspirational goal I’ve had for as long as I’ve been a gardener - and this year I have tickets! DH and I have booked a 2 week trip to the UK. Once there, we will be travelling by train, and have already booked accommodations in a National Trust apartment in Birmingham for part of our stay! Activities will be urban adventures for the most part, with day trips by train to places of interest, and possibly a mini-bus tour or two. Lots of walking. Geographically, we will be in the West Midlands and Thames River Valley area, with London at the end.

Below is my first try at a travel capsule.

5 long sleeve t-shirts
2 sleeveless tanks
2 light weight sweaters
1 long sleeve button down
white cropped jeans
dark straight jeans
red pleated skirt
jean jacket
red trench raincoat

Lepliage navy tote
red leather cross body
silk scarf
white loafers
red converse
Travel outfit: navy striped button down, OTF 7/8 pants, light weight gold puffer, pashmina, black converse.

Not shown - the support acts of undies, socks, PJ’s, etc.

DH is packing his collapsible umbrella, but I’m looking for a red or navy bucket hat to use as a sun/rain hat. I’m also keeping my eyes open for a packable (mesh?) dress with a large floral pattern - for the garden show!

What do you think? Am I missing anything? Temps high 18degC/low 10degC per historical averages.
