We're off on holiday again soon - this time swapping snowy Prague for sunny Portugal, so the packing has been made slightly easier as everything is far less chunky and bulky. Saying this, I wanted to put together a blog post about how I'm travelling light this time and what I pack for a Spring city getaway.
It's a whole lot easier packing lighter materials than it is having to narrow down what coat you should bring and stuffing in an extra pair of boots where you can. It's still hard though when considering that you're packing a 20kg suitcase for two people, so I like to ensure that I'm not putting in any non-essentials. I like to use every compartment, stuffing them with underwear, socks and any hair accessories I have as this allows more room in the main suitcase for all your clothes.
I wanted to get a few new pieces to take away with me and the Boohoo Woven Polka Dot Skater Dress looked like the perfect pop of colour to my otherwise monochrome wardrobe. I've also picked up the New Look Linen Crop Trouser which I think would be super lightweight when the weather is warm, but also keep my cosy in the evening.
Onto beauty now and I allow myself one makeup bag and then a shared shower bag for us both too, making sure to pack all the toiletries I need, decanting any shampoo and conditioner I want into smaller containers to save room. I've gone for the Maui Shea Butter Shampoo* miniature that I've got and then follow that up with a small can of IGK Beach Club Spray because I still want to make sure my locks look great.
As for makeup, I like to make sure I only pack one of each although I allow an exception when it comes to lipstick as I always love to have a red for the evening. I opt for a good all rounder when it comes to foundation, concealer and powder. The miniature Milk Makeup Werk Lip and Cheek Stick is also packed along with my usual mascara and eyeliner.
What do you usually pick for a city break?
