With the long weekend fast approaching, it's easy to leave packing to the last minute in the rush to get five days' worth of work done in four! Especially when the public holiday falls on a Friday, so if you're in a bind and rushing to pack we've curated an easy guide to your long weekend essentials.
Discover below our must-have items for ensuring your weekend escape is stress free!
Keep warm and stylish with colourful knitwear:
For any winter escape, knitwear is a must. From adventures in the snow to relaxing at a resort, having a warm layer that pops with colour not only keeps you looking fabulous, but provides much-needed warmth no matter where the weekend takes you!
An effortless maxi dress, easy to dress down or up:
We've all been there, you've packed light for a weekend away, but when it's time to go out for dinner you have nothing to wear. Maxi dresses are the perfect solution to this problem, easy to dress casual with sneakers and a sweater or elevate the look with heels and a coat - we guarantee you'll have multiple uses for a maxi!
The final layer, the perfect weekend coat:
With the weather across the country hitting the negatives it's key to pack a coat! No matter what you're doing a jacket should be your best friend this coming weekend. For dinners out, we're obsessed with the Money Coat from Drama The Label and for those who have adventures in mind, the Block Down Puffer from Huffer will have you cosy and ready to be active!
Where to pack it all?
We are fans of packing light but packing right, which is why you'll find us jetting off with our favourite tote and backpack in tow! Below are our favourite and our roomiest bags perfect for an overnight getaway - you'll be surprised how much you can fit into these gems!
Keepy hydrated and stay snacking!
We don't know about you, but on a holiday away especially during transit we are always snacking - so this is your reminder to pack snacks and a water bottle! It's so easy to get dehydrated while you're caught up in the moment of being away so this is your friendly reminder to look after yourself and the planet by travelling with a reusable water bottle.
Remember if you're travelling away this weekend, stay safe and drive carefully!
