I'm not looking to buy any new clothes (no money!), but I need inspiration for what to take. It's so hard to plan for the weather. it could be monsoon like today or hot and sunny like 2 weeks ago.
We are self catering in Isle of Wight for 7 days, going last week in June.

We went IOW back in April for 4 days. I travelled in leggings, black long sleeve top, chunky cardi and converse. Then packed 2 x jeans, 2 x vest tops, 2 x short sleeve tee, 2 x long sleeve tee, 2 x dressier tee. I took wedges but ended u[p wearing converse all the time. I also took my black leather biker jacket and my big parka coat too just in case.

You should be able to get an idea what the weather is going to be like before you go but take provisions for different weather just in case.

We went to IOW last year. It was one of the rare warm weeks in August. I checked just before we went what the weather was supposed to be like. I took stuff for the beach, shorts, t shirts, jeans a couple of skirts, a couple of cardies, raincoats. It rained one day but was mostly warm. Its hard packing for British holidays as the weather is so variable.

Garlic Farm is lovely. We went to Carisbrooke Castle and Osborne House and The Needles Old Battery which was more interesting than it might sound. A couple of days on the beach. We didn't get round half the island theres loads to see.

Jeans with a vest top works with sandles/wedges if nice, or add a cardgian or jumper for the cooler weather. Converse too.
Cagoule is a must!
Leggings. shorts/maxi dress if needed.

I go for layers in the UK. For example I can wear leggings and a skirt, vest top, thin cardi and chunky cardi/jacket. Then if it gets warm I can get rid of the leggings and the jacket/chunky cardi. I tend to wear sandles or flip flops no matter how cold it is unless it is raining when I end up in trainers.
