Winter Weekend Wardrobe Guide

Post by CM

With all these yellow weather warnings, frozen mornings and whisperings of snow I feel like I’m being acclimatised to my impending weekend break to Gdansk, Poland. They don’t call bitterly cold conditions Baltic for nothing, so I’m thinking long and hard about what to pack in my tiny Ryanair friendly suitcase.

Obviously things are going to be tight, what with the bulky winter jumpers I really have no choice but to include. So first things first – I’ve taken the drastic decision to pack but two pair of heels and one pair of flats, while wearing my sensible boots on the flight. And considering this is coming from someone who took four pairs of stillettos with her last week to Dublin for ONE night away (I needed options!), you can see that practicality is (almost) the name of the game.

Actually I already have way too much. But as you can see I’m more or less sticking to a colour pallette, which means I’ll have HUNDREDS of choices!

My toiletries, little roll of jewellery, passport, wallet, hairbrush and glasses will fit in my handbag, thanks to Ryanair’s relaxation on the cabin baggage rules. Yay! Might even fit in an extra top or two…

Of course my under garments are stuffed in there too (but you don’t want to see those – this isn’t that kind of blog) and of course the required gloves, hat and ear-warmers – and I will be wearing a coat and scarf!
