I'm off on holiday at the end of the week, at last! I've been gradually buying my Summer pieces since the Winter months and I've created quiet the collection. What I tend to struggle with the most with packing for a long weekend is cramming everything into a carry on-it sounds impossible (especially talking from a serial over-packer) but trust me, it can be done.
I've partnered with Banana Republic to show you my favourite pieces from their new collection, why I'm taking them away with me on my long weekend and most importantly how I'm wearing them.
I think the most important trick to packing is to pack things that are interchangeable. For example a crisp white shirt linen which can be worn tucked into a pair of linen trousers, worn open over a swimsuit or tied up at the waist and worn with a floral maxi.
That being said these Banana Republic polka dot trousers will be great for a day to night scenario. They're a really cool straight leg and slightly cropped on the bottom which is key for me when shopping for trousers. They're really light and machine washable-bonus! Day time I'll be keeping it simple with a crisp white tee (A staple in any suitcase) and a pair of simple white trainers. Come evening, I'll be pairing the trousers with a strappy cami and a heeled sandal.
The trick with interchangeable outfits is to pack your staples and make sure you're getting at least 2/3 outfits out of each, that way you'll master the carry on!
