Great elevated basics with gorgeous prints and flattering designs. I chose stripes, prints and sparkles. What a surprise huh?!

I’ve pulled together these Elm Lifestyle pieces to create a capsule for a long weekend away.

Here’s the plan. A weekend away. Sightseeing, (OK shopping), dinner at the pub, lazy winery lunches, curling up in your B&B …

Nothing worse than overpacking, so I’ve curated the perfect capsule for a long weekend away with these gorgeous Elm Lifestyle pieces.

Add a pair of jeans, a pair of boots, extra layers, accessories, a good book or three on your Kindle, and you’re good to go.

When are we roadtripping?!

Let’s check out the outfits!

Elm Lifestyle Blizzard Puffer Jacket

A gorgeous pastel print on a charcoal background, this not-too-puffy puffer jacket is a winner! It has pockets, elasticated cuffs, zipper and snap fastenings and a cosy hood. And best of all, a longer tail because nobody likes a cold bum!

Who doesn’t love stripes? I’m on Team Stripes for life! This top is a classic drop shoulder stripe T shirt in a fabulous thick cotton jersey, perfect for layering. It features on trend rust and pink accents on the sleeves and bound neck. It is a slouchy relaxed fit, which I love. I’d suggest sizing down if you prefer a more fitted look.

Elm Lifestyle Clovis Shirt

Oh so pretty in pink (and also available in my favourite navy), this shirt features a peplum hi lo design and a gold foiled embellishment. It’s perfect for twirling too! Shirts are often an issue for me with my EnormoBoobs and I found this one a roomy fit with minimal gaping. Yes!

What to pack for a long weekend away

Of course, you can pack more if you like. It’s your bag and you have to carry it! I used to be an overpacker of chronic proportions. Think of this as a guide from someone who thought they could never do it!

Pack extra layers, accessories, a cross body bag, comfy shoes that can be dressed up or down, hat, sunnies and a scarf. Nailed it!
