When my husband and I decided to spend some time seeing cathedrals and castles in Baden-Württemberg for a weekend, I ended up packing 3 hats. For a two day trip! Sounds kinda silly but I’ll have you know that I ended up wearing every single one of ’em.
Packing for early spring in Germany is hard. For real. Our weekend forecast had rain, temps up to the low 60s, and then some snow for the last day! And even though things have been warming up lately, we’re still not in the clear.
So this is what I wore to navigate these bipolar early spring days while exploring the city of Ulm.
My main concern was staying dry, so I grabbed my yellow raincoat (similar here) and water proof, low-heel booties. My rain coat is more than just a shell, and has a little bit of warmth to it for when it gets chilly. And I stuck to booties but could have brought knee high boots if I wanted to be even warmer.
For the rest I chose comfy basics for walking around all day. My block stripe top is old, but these step hem jeans are newer and the stretch is amazing. I’m a big fan of high waists these days and the distressing is just right. I do recommend sizing down so they stay tight throughout the day.
Does the beret serve any actual purpose besides just being cute? No. But I love it so I’ll just continue to wear it with anything and everything.
To keep my options open in case things warmed up I brought these black loafers, and for the snow I brought this pom beanie and a wool scarf. So I managed to strike a balance with this finicky weather.
What kind of things do you pack when traveling in early spring?
