Love to love... Long weekends
Calling all runaways.
What to pack? No matter where you're going, we've got you sorted.
Plans for the long weekend? We've got plenty. Whether you want to chase the sun, rug up by a fireplace somewhere or not leave your house, we've got you covered for everything you'll need.
It's time to say "see ya later" to the nine to five and prepare for some leisure-time.
It's the perfect time of year to escape somewhere cool. Whether you opt for the mountains, the coast or somewhere with wide, open plains, there's no need to pack light this long weekend. The more jumpers, the better. Cardigans, scarves, boots, coats. No matter where you're going, make like you're going into the wild. We love a jumper tied around the waist of another jumper. This weekend, layer same same - think long-sleeve T-shirts over long-sleeve T-shirts, jumpers over jumpers and coats on coats. Play with weights and tones. Too much is never enough. Also, do not forget the everyday essentials like slip dresses and, ahem, intimate apparel.
Go on baby, light the fire.
CHASE THE SUN
European summer? Yes please. Hot hot heat, that's what we're chasing. If your long weekend isn't looking quite that la-de-dah, book a ticket north - anywhere warmer than here - and book it quick sticks. Insta-envy, here it comes.
So, what to pack? Swimsuits - you need one for each day you're away plus two. We love to mix up the bikinis and the one-pieces, and always, always, always, light cotton shirts for layering. A hat is a must and sunglasses of course.
Take a run at the sun.
Like Audrey Hepburn once told LIFE Magazine in 1953, "I'd be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That's how I refuel."
We love a night in. Four in a row, well that's a real treat.
Wear sweats, and only sweats. Layer your jumpers and ditch the shoes because socks are where it's at this long weekend. Comfort, above all it key.
Order pizza and eat it in bed. Watch every single episode of whatever you feel like. House of Cards anyone? Read a book. Read a few of them. Classics, yes (hel-lo Tess of D'Urbervilles) but also the need-to-reads - Joan Didion's Slouching Towards Bethlehem, anything by Joyce Carol Oates and, of course, Patti Smith's Just Kids.
Like Dorothy, the lady with the ruby slippers says, "There's no place like home." So settle in, you're here for the long haul.
