Packing for the weekend….?

weekend packing guide

Packing for a weekend break that holds variable weather options in a small hand luggage bag takes some thinking. There really is only one rule (much as I dislike the word ‘rule’!)

Pack one colour combination, that gives you a stylish, cohesive selection of clothes and accessories. In other words everything goes with everything, providing multiple options for multiple eventualities.

For my birthday recently, I was lucky enough to be invited to a friends boat in Holland which meant packing a bag for hand luggage, small cabin space, birthday dinner and unpredictable weather, added to which a boat means rubber bottom shoes.  So I choose the nautical colour combination (unintentional!) of blue and white, with orange to add a zing of colour and metallics as an interesting neutral. The boat did have its own stock of waterproofs so I was able to just focus on outfits that remained stylish whilst providing layering options if required.

I traveled in?

  • Pair of jeans
  • Blue and white striped linen shirt
  • Silver espadrilles

I packed:

  • Grey, embroidered T-shirt
  • Long sleeved blue & white striped sleeve striped T-shirt
  • White cropped trousers
  • Blue and white striped cold shoulder top
  • Pair of  bright blue shorts
  • Orange light weight sweater
  • Navy lightweight cotton jacket  (thankfully not needed!)
  • Orange clutch bag
  • Sparkly flip flops
  • Bikini (sadly not needed!)
  • Orange bandana
