ESSENTIALS FOR A WEEKEND AWAY

by jenellewitty@gmail.com

SydneyTravel_4 I am en route to Sydney for a weekend away.

As this post goes live I am headed to Sydney. A last minute trip, I am heading over to attend the 2014 Blogster Awards bash and couldn’t be more excited.

So, what am I packing?

While the images above seem very full of colour, do not be fooled. Staring at the rack of clothes I pulled before rolling them up into my suitcase, I saw nothing but black, white and a little blue. None the less, my neutral weekend away capsule ensures that I can mix and match without much prior thought. In my mind, the less time spent fussing over getting dressed is time better spent enjoying your destination. (I googled the weather, Sydney is presenting 25-28 degrees and sunshine, perfect!)

I digress. So what am I packing? 

THE ESSENTIALS

– Black skinny jeans
– A black fedora hat
– A striped tee
– Converse
– Ankle boots
– A loose cotton shirt
– Black sandals
– A swimsuit or bikini
– Denim shorts
– Sunglasses
– A shirt-dress
– A leather biker jacket
– At least one jumper
– A black blazer

By now looking at that list of black items it would be easy to expect I am covered in it 24/7 well, almost. I purchase things in black/ neutrals, preferring to add colour in later with an accessory (such as the amazing clutch bag pictured above- via Bohemian Traders). This list above are only my essentials, to which I add in all sorts of other pieces depending on the rough plan and occasions, but it is good to start with a reliable foundation.

While in Sydney I am aiming to shoot a few outfit shoots to showcase some of the WA based labels I am loving. Stay tuned. For now though watch my Instagram feed for all sorts of updates! @inspiringwit
