Outfit: Leopard Button Down, Green Corduroy Skirt, and Chelsea Boots

Windmill Stairs in Bruges Wearing a Leopard Silk Top Faux Leather Jacket and Green Corduroy Skirt

Good morning (or afternoon or evening) to you! In my vacation picture editing extravaganza that happened last week, I found yet another set of pictures that would make a perfect outfit post. These pictures were taken at Windmill Bonne Chiere in the morning of our last day in Bruges, Belgium. I made seeing at least one windmill a priority on this trip since I'd missed out on them the first time I went to Bruges when I was a kid. After the tourists in the back of some of these photos left, Matt and I had the windmill all to ourselves so we could climb up on the stairs and get some fun pictures while taking in the view. (Sorry no pictures taken from up there. I wasn't about to drop and break my camera in the middle of our trip. Those stairs were steep!)

This windmill is an open trestle post mill. It was built on a post so it could be turned to meet the wind and, since it's large enough to not blow over every time there's strong wind, the post wasn't buried - hence the open trestle. I guess it was easier to not dig and bury the post so they stopped doing that once windmills were made larger. #TheMoreYouKnow

Travel Style - Leather Jacket Black Camera Bag Leopard Blouse Green Button Through Skirt

As you can see, I'm wearing my green corduroy button down skirt form H&M yet again in these pictures. It really was a versatile piece in my travel wardrobe! I styled it with a silk leopard print shirt I thrifted long ago, my faux leather jacket, and a pair of simple black chelsea boots from Boohoo. 

I hope some of these travel outfit posts give you some ideas of items to pack next time you're traveling in cooler temperatures and want to actually look like your normal stylish self. I know my bag weight max was pretty low for the amount of stuff needed for a 2 and a half week trip, so remixable items were an absolute must. Unfortunately this silk top ended up horribly wrinkled after being put back in my bag and I couldn't wear it again on the trip. (No iron.) So a tip I learned: maybe don't bring silk shirts even though they're light and look nice.
