How to Create a Travel Capsule Wardrobe

Since my last travel post ‘5 Top Tips to Travel Light‘ I’ve had requests for more travel based post so here is my long weekend His and Hers travel capsule wardrobes. Last time I mentioned the key to packing light was finding the right bag and these leather beauties from Mahi are it! I fell completely in love with Mahi gorgeous real leather over night bags, each one is made to order and it had the options to be monogrammed.

As well as the right bag you need the right capsule wardrobe. Having a travel capsule wardrobe where everything goes with everything else will only make packing easier but it will also make getting ready once you get there simpler. Here are my key His and Hers pieces to build your travel capsule wardrobe.

5 Top Tips to Travel Light

While the big summer holiday might still be months away, the wintery months are a great time of year for long weekend city breaks. Whether you’re hopping on a plane or a train, getting away for a few days in one of Europe’s most lively cities is a great way to escape. But the problem with every city break is no matter how much you try, packing light is always the hardest part! So here are my top tips on how to pack light and get the most out of you luggage space!

1. Buy the Right Travel Case 

Buying the right bag/case to begin with is the most important thing. Most airlines have pretty much the same or similar restrictions when it comes to cabin baggage sizes. Standard is around 55cm x 35cm x 25cm, so when you are buying your case make sure it’s around this size otherwise you won’t be allowed it. Also the budget airlines, RyanAir, Jet2 and FlyBe all have a carry on weight limit of 10kg so make sure you weigh before you go and choose carefully. EasyJet has no weight limit – so if you’re flying with them go nuts as long as the case closes #FTW. (But remember a lot of the budget airlines want you to be able to put your handbag inside your carry on, so don’t bring a big handbag as well.)

One Short Day in the Emerald City

Wicked and London and dinner oh my! What a truly wonderful weekend in London with my wonderful boyfriend. As a surprise for my birthday he arrange a weekend away with dinner and a show. This is the first time I’d seen Wicked, having being a huge fan for years, and it was not a disappointment.

We were staying round the corner in Victoria and started the evening with a very yummy dinner at Dim T. Amazing food and then on to the show.

I was buzzing with excitement and the green glow in the lobby of the Victoria Apollo with all the merchandise made it feel so magically like going to Disneyland.

 

I’m a huge fan of musicals and theatre and had been dying to see Wicked for years. It’s such and amazing story with incredible music too. Rumour mills are turning that the movie is in talks (fingers crossed they do a good job), I’m very excited to see how that turns out and whether, the original Broadway Elphaba, Idina Mendel will be cast.
