5 top tips when packing for a city break
I've just returned from a couple of days in the beautiful city of Bath. It's a stunning city with lots of fabulous shops and restaurants. If you're planning to head there any time soon, get in touch and I can definitely recommend a few nice places to eat and drink..!!
Here are my top tips for effortless packing...
4. Get your bag right
As far as I'm concerned there's nothing more important than having the right bag when exploring a city. There's the 'pack it all in' oversized shopper or the cross your body 'hands free' style. The shopper works so well during the day when you might be carrying any number of 'essential items' such as sunglasses and hat (hopefully), maybe a small jacket and any of those impulse purchases you've found on your travels. Then there's the smaller, cross body style or maybe backpack, which keeps your valuable personal possessions close at hand but your hands free for taking snaps or for handling a cocktail!
5. Get it covered with the jacket
Obviously, you hope you won't need to think about this too much, but if you've checked the weather forecast and it's a bit uncertain, then you will need to pack something just in case. Ideally choose something light and not too bulky. A lightweight rain mac, leather jacket or even a relaxed style in linen can work so well. Don't bring anything that your not happy to pop in your bag or sling over your arm if the sun does decide to shine!!

Step into Spring
The birds are twittering outside. The warmth of the sun’s rays challenges the brisk cold air. This time of year is one of my favorites. I love it when the new Spring collections start to arrive as they bring light and colour back to the shop floor, and with them the promise of the warm weather to come.
This Spring, fashion delivers pretty pastels, with rose pinks, pale blues and aqua plus elegant silver creating a delicate combination. By contrast, expect to find stronger pinks and coral reds set against navy and cream offering a more definite colour palette.
Prints are still key, with geometric designs and diffused florals remaining popular.
Spring knitwear layered over a blouse works well as a transitional look, adding a certain softness to the top half, whilst still allowing jeans and ankle boots to keep you warm to your toes.
This is a great time to focus on spring jackets, be they denim, leather or jersey. We are loving this denim jacket by Sandwich with a contemporary sleeve detail. Check out the latest Ilse Jacobsen spring coats which are breathable, yet wind and rain proof with a soft micro fleece lining. They are our top choice for functional yet stylish outerwear, all in great colours to compliment the season.
