Boden Packing Post
With the next few weeks boasting a few globe trotting trips for yours truly, a recent packing inspired post I did for Boden couldn't have been more appropriate. I'm the worst person at taking my own advice, and over-packing is certainly a trait of mine that I can securely brag to be true (not that I would, of course- nobody ever needs to discover how heavy my suitcase can get after ten extra pairs of pyjamas and three coats have been packed)- so making note of the sartorial essentials when travelling certainly got me thinking...

Not only did I list the ultimate weekend away essentials (which I'd like to think cater for everything from a relaxed spa break (hotel slippers not necessary), busy laptop-fuelled work trip or a bit of city exploring) but I styled up some of my favourite new season pieces to hopefully shed a little inspiration for any of you slightly lacking as the cooler months come in, and to cater for any overseas climates you may be venturing to- enjoy (and send me a postcard)!

  3. I am the same, I think I am packing light but then I end of packing extra just incase, I am going away for 3 months and I've told myself to only back the bare essentials.

  22. I love your top so much, and your shoes are really something special! I tend to pack last-minute, so not only do I forget to bring a bunch of things I need, but I also bring a bunch of things I don't need. I should probably work on that... -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  24. I am definitely guilty of over packing too! I always think I need ALL my makeup, and then I just end up using like 5 products! Loved the post, the photos are great! xx

  28. I can never pack light because I always want to have so many options just in case I change my mind but so much of the stuff goes unused or unworn the whole trip.
