Hi guys! My husband has surprised us all and is taking us away on a short city break to Barcelona for my birthday! As it’s a short getaway a carry on suitcase is all I’ll be bringing. I’ve packed 9 outfits, 5 pairs of shoes and all my makeup in a simple carry on.
WHAT TO PACK FOR A GETAWAY
Always bring a pair of flat shoes (it’s kind of a no brainier!) and you will be surprised how many forget to do this! I always like to bring a pair of trainers (my Converse Chuck Taylor’s go with pretty much anything!) and a pair of smart ballerina pumps or mules. I’ll be packing my Dune Mosco Mules (here)and wearing my Dune Gaze loafers for my airport outfit (here).
A Cross free body bag
If you are going in a city break, chances are you will be wandering a lot of streets and a small bag will help you to avoid that shoulder ache (you know the one, where you carry your whole life in one giant bag!). I’all be bringing my Cult Gaia bag (here) and my new Marks and Spencer (here) cross body bag for the ultimate city cool girl chic.
Light layers are the perfect items to pack for a spring city break. Not only do they take up minimal space in your carry on but you can mix and match them with a number of items, giving you a multiple of outfit choices! Try adding silk camisoles or slip dresses like I have packed for this getaway (here and here).
And finally accessories, they take up little (if not any!) room at all and it’s a great way to give your outfit that extra oomph. Try adding a pair of tassel earrings (like I have packed from Mango) these will go with any outfit day or night.
