Packing For A Weekend City Break

about 3 years ago

Ok, so packing for a 2 night city break with either BF or BFF means a huge suitcase, a carry-on and a super-huge handbag, stuffed to the brim, right? Actually, I'm currently learning the joys of "packing light" and outfit planning and it makes life so much easier! Here are my thoughts...

First Night Out


Wherever I go, the first night is always the big night out. Plus, since I'm not one of those rebels that can manage 2 nights in a row, I always want the first night to be the hottest outfit. I'm in love with the pop of cobalt this dress brings and I can't even deal with the combo of this bag and heels. It's such a look.

Day Of Exploring The City


Denim shorts are the perfect answer to the hot city stroll-around. I would do either of these combo's - I especially like the all-white vibe if the suns shining.

You could opt for sandals or slides but if I'm wondering around all day, I'd always go for a comfortable sneaker and I love these from Adidas.

2nd Night - Dinner Date


Whether it's with your bae or your bestie, the second night is always to explore the best restaurants and bars in the city. I'd go a little more chill than night 1, but still super chic, just because #fashion.
I've pinned this dress previously, but it's just so perfect for this look. And wedges are ideal for city walking!

Home Time


The last day on a weekend break usually consists of a late breakfast, a bit of wondering around and then travelling home either by plane or car. So, comfort is key! I'm obsessed with both of these wide-leg white trackpants and would wear it with a simple jersey bodysuit and yesterdays sneakers. Easy!

So, you see, with a little forward planning, you can pick your outfits in advance and take ONLY what you need.

It might seem tough but it makes your weekend pretty straight forward once you get there, leaving more time for fun fun fun!
