I am off tomorrow for a short spring break. A real treat. We will be staying at the Ston Eastern Park Hotel in Somerset with friends. Our husbands will be going fishing and I am sure that my friend and I will find plenty to do, long walks in the countryside, a beauty treatment at the spa and of course a trip to the beautiful city of Bath which is only about 12 miles away.
What to pack:
Now that is a conundrum. After the most gorgeously hot and sunny Easter weekend, I am looking out of my window as I write this and the weather is rainy, cold and windy.
Layers are the only answer. I never travel without a light thermal vest. They are so useful you can pop it under anything, they add an extra layer of warmth and take up hardly any room in a suitcase.
Before I pack I hang any contenders on a clothes rail so that I can begin to play around with outfits. The hotel seems quite posh and the fine dining looks amazing so I have included a couple of evening pieces. Nothing too grand just some plain black trousers and some brightly coloured tops.
Components of my capsule travel wardrobe:
Red leopard print tunic Mint velvet last year. They have a similar style in Zebra print / Navy tunic shirt Gerard Darel (similar) / Ivory blouse with lace Hopefashionuk / Light coral
What I will be travelling in:
My favourite leather biker jacket by MeandEm this years version (pricey but a good investment). A raincoat as rain is essential mine was from Mango a few years ago. I like my fully rainproof Lands’ end offer some good ones. Plus of course, my wellies for those country walks.
