What to pack for a short break? First of all, it’s better to take a large handbag as your carry-on luggage to avoid fees for hold baggage. The art of packing light for short trips is essential! Bringing a book to read while traveling is a necessity, at least for me, and I personally prefer thriller ones to keep me busy at the airport or on a train. If you liked Gone Girl, I recommend you The Girl On The Train (1). Then, regarding the clothes make sure to bring with you casual items as you’ll be walking around. Minimalist t-shirts are always a good idea, and you can find nice v-neck tops at Warehouse (2). And wearing an A-line jean skirt (3) will add a 60s’ vibe to the look. Don’t forget your makeup bag! Origins’ kisszing lip crayon (4) is easy to use if you’re always on-the-go. It effortlessly brings some colour on your lips. I also love the Superga sneakers (5) because they are comfortable.
