I was going to write about your Spring Essentials – then I looked outside and there wasn’t much to see besides some grey cloud and that wasn’t very inspiring. So then I thought about what I was wanting to pack for our girls weekend away. What I need to pack for my weekend away (with the ladies to Melbourne) is differnent to what your going to pack for where ever you may be going – but that’s ok, at least its a start.
So Im heading to Melbourne with the other half of Daily Style – Ms Daily Style herself, Ms The Beautiful Soup and our lovely friend Ms Crazy Mumma. We are heading over for a weekend of shopping, wining and dining and to definitely to sleep in! What am I going to pack……well first I have to start thinking abut what we are planning to do and when, this will guide me as to what type of outfit is required.
Day One – Lunch and Shopping, then Dining = 2 outfits
Day Two – Shopping, Dining and Wining = 2 outfits
Day Three – Relaxing and coming home = 1 outfit
This equals 5 outfits, 3 casual and 2 to dress up. All this has to fit into a weekend / over night bag. I can’t take 5 outfits, I have to plan to rotate/reuse what I do take and makes sure it all works together and I want a fairly minimal chic look, also remembering Melbourne has 4 seasons in one day, is something to take into consideration. I headed to pintrest to help guide me and find some inspiration. It always works….
Easy outfit for quick flight, lunch and a bit of browsing
Another reasonable easy outfit – jeans, shirt & accessories
Relatively casual but stylish for a day of shopping
Dressing it up – using the shoes and jeans / pants from night before but different top and accessories
I am pretty sure this has it all covered, on the last day I can wear the pants from the first day with a different top. The idea is to take items that are useable more than once and all from a similar colour palette (mine is usally white/black/grey). The black jeans can be worn both nights, the cuffed jeans can be worn twice and I can chose what shirts / tops to wear. I would also throw in a striped tee and chambray shirt and perhaps a pair of shorts to the mix for another option, especially if it does decide to warm up. Also remembering I will be there shopping, so will have more than enough.
Lets not to forget to take all my toiletries, hair dryer, make up and a pair of havianas! Did I miss anything? What would you pack on a girls weekend away?
