SWAP 2016 (Hiking Theme)

I’m joining in the fun of the 2016 SWAP over on Artisan Square.  It is to create an 11 piece wardrobe by the And of April 2016.  The main idea for my SWAP is a hiking ‘collection’ that I can stuff in a pack for an 3-4 day walk without having to think to much about what goes with what

SWAP Requirements

More detail can be found here, but the main structure is as follows:

1 “3 pack” of Color(s) A (3 garments)
1 “3 pack” of Color(s) B (3 garments)
1 “Combo Pack” of Colors A & B (2 garments)
1 “3 pack” of Wild Cards

Personal Requirements

  • will cover mild to hot conditions – eg graphic Ts, short & long sleeve shirts, convertible pants, long pants, togs, light storm jacket
  • doesn’t double up anything I already have
  • desperately need pants in cream/brown shades to go with stuff I already have
  • love a pair of rust convertible pants
  • need to replace  airy linen shirt and grey polo shirt
  • nice to have charcoal board-shorts
  • can add some “wet” and  winter ‘packs’ at a later stage eg (tankini top, rashie, boardies), (waterproof coat + overpants, DWR fleece) etc

Colour Theme & Initial Plan

cream, chocolate, cayenne & charcoal
