A Guide to Packing (for that break away)

Having spent the last week debating what clothes to take with me ready for my move to Bournemouth, i started to think about how we pack for our holidays. I need to take just enough to keep me going in my new job for two weeks whilst i wait for the rest of my belongings and clothes to join me.

My new job is in retail so i need to make sure i pack clothes that are versatile and on-trend.

I still haven't decided on what I'm taking but i did check out some packing guides on the net, this one from http://www.ricksteves.com/plan/tips/womenpack.htm caught my attention - see what you think!

Packing Essentials

  • If you won't wear it more than three times, don't bring it!
  • Pack light, wash frequently, buy it if you need it
  • Your pack should weigh about 20 percent of your body weight, preferably no more than 20 pounds
  • Limit yourself to one carry-on size bag: 9" x 21" x 13"
  • A week before your trip, pack your bag with everything you think you want to take, and carry it around for a day. Is it comfortable? Too heavy? Better to know now than later!
I thought the third line was so funny, it would give me the equivalent of a hanky!

So my ideal suitcase - well it would contain some of the following


Vanessa Bruno Jacket

with a cute silk top and


Phillip Lim Trousers


Alexander McQueen Dress

Diane Von Furstenburg Dress


See By Chloe Dress (for the beach!)

Bottega Veneta Wedge

Yep, you'll definitely need more than a hanky for all that. :0)
