Everyone dreams of getting away and city breaks are great but when you are limited to a single carry on case you can really start to panic! Don’t worry I’m here to share with you all how I pack.
Luggage –A bag that is suitable to go in the cabin hold. I prefer a pull along style bag as it is easier on your back and it easier to transport from plane, train and automobile!
A Large Tote – I generally bring a big handbag that way I can fit my beauty essentials, kindle, iphone and money. This way it is easier to store these items and can be found at a moments notice.
Jacket –This time of year can still be quite cold, depending on where you are heading so having a warm jacket is a must have item.
Flat Shoes –I recommend a pair of comfortable flat shoes especially if you are going to be doing a lot of walking. Take along a pair of runners or flat pumps that you have worn before and know that they are comfortable. Do not take those adorable pair of shoes that you have never worn because they will leave your feet swollen, cut and blistered!
Jeans – A pair of skinny jeans can be worn from day to night and dressed up or down for a more casual look. I usually bring about two pairs of jeans with me.
Skater Skirt – This is a must have item as it doesn’t take up much space in your luggage and makes any outfit look dress. Can be worn with a bomber jacket and a pair of flats.
Jumpers – Try wearing a stripped jump tucked into a high waisted pair of jeans and add a pretty scarf to complete the look. I pack about three different jumpers when going away for a long weekend.
Day to night dress – If you know that you will be heading out for a few drinks or dinner then having a dress in a single colour is a great option. A little black shift dress can be versatile and can be worn with a pair of flats or heels.
Black Heels – Bring a pair of black heels for evening wear so you can change just before you head out to dinner.
