How To: Pack for a weekend getaway
So here’s the honest truth – I am absolutely useless when it comes to travelling light – I just can’t seem to consolidate my packing to fit into a hold-all, or at least, not one that I can carry (enter hubby). Of course I am frightfully optimistic about my ability to, so like with all things, I decided that the only way for me to do so was to buy the perfect hold all, and then to try.
Now that I have the holdall, I had to set my self a challenge: Pack for 1 weekend, in 1 bag that I can carry all by my self:The pieces:
- Gunmetal Sequin jacket by Rohit and Rahul
A dressy jacket is the perfect piece for any holiday. Not only does it instantly dress up a day look, but it also keeps you warm against those evening chills.
- Black and bronze floral necklace by Blinked
A statement necklace is an absolute must. Pick one that will go with all of your items, and throw it on for a little glam. Statement neck pieces are also great for those evenings when you want to dress up without putting on the heels.
- Black Tank top
Forget the LBD, its all about the LBT (Little Black Tank). Wear it part tucked in at night with your favourite jeans and a pair of heels, or loose with a pair of sandals.
- Your favourite Jeans
Forget your skinny day jeans, and instead go for your most comfortable go-to pair. Play around with the hem, roll them, cuff them, let them loose, heals, flats or even barefoot – jeans are the most versatile item you can travel with.
- Gold clutch by Amethyst
Again, and instant lifter. This gold woven clutch goes equally well with a pair of jeans or a dress.
- Palazzo Pants by Veda Raheja
Stay on trend with these palazzo pants by Veda Raheja. Super comfortable and cool, you’ll find these a perfect pair to take with you anywhere.
- Crop top by Veda Raheja
A holiday is a great time to try out the crop top trend – plus its also teeny tiny, so easy to pack!
- Tan leather slippers
Neutral, comfortable, easy – like every pair of great footwear should be. Genius.
- White tank top
Like its black counterpart, a simple clean tank top is an absolute must for any holiday. Wear it tied up, tucked, loose – the possibilities are endless.
- Bronze cork wedges
Wedges are a great alternative to stilettos on any holiday. Light weight and comfortable, they will keep you dancing well into the night. Try to find a pair with cork, so they’ll be lighter to carry too.
