For the merry month of May here in the UK we have struck the mother load with two bank holiday weekends and rest assured we are more than ready for them. When it comes to Bank Holiday packing, we know it can be a mixture of the last minute promise of sunshine, the inevitable over packing, and the need for a capsule wardrobe (accessories and all).

As stressful as all this probably sounds, we’re here to give offer the hit list of a life time to ease you in to the start of a Spring filled with lovely long weekends. Whether you’re darting across the continent or down the country for a well-earned retreat we think we have the ultimate home from home accessories check list to subside stress of packing.


If you struggle to pack lightly, whether its a long drive or a short flight we have the ultimate baggage to keep your load down whilst ensuring you always look stylish.

We all know one hand luggage isn't rarely enough, and if you know you'll be out and about all weekend its important to have a handy, trendy and practical backpack in tow, and who better to help you out than See by Chloé? If you're hoping on a plane (or two) then a travel wallet is the ultimate Summer '18 investment and Aspinal of London's reliable, iconic leather pouches are a go-to. The final accessories to welcome any long weekend? A Spring inspired pair of McQ sunglasses.


For men a capsule wardrobe is slightly more easily achievable, however the accessories to match are rarely a priority. The importance of a sterdy and efficient travel bag is true for everyone, and if one bag is never enough then we can see that you have two in perfect proportion.

To ensure you maximise each and every long weekend with ultimate efficiency, a staple set of luggage tags will go a long way, the brand to know? Aspinal of London, their investment worthy leather will stand the test of time. If you too overpack, then a handy strap bag is a sure fire trend statement for SS18, and what better way to carry your new Tom Ford shades?

No excuses, it's time to get packing...

Follower of street style trends by the dozen, you'll rarely catch me in anything but trainers. Accessories and outerwear are my calling, and in my eyes there's no such thing as overdoing them.
