The Great Weekender

The dream of summer breezes tempts us out of the airless city to the country or the coast. Whether Hampshire, the Hamptons or Huelva, packing calls for a weekender bag filled with cool classics. We don’t want to embarrass ourselves with trunk loads of stuff, just because we can take it in the car. Our hostess’s face would fall as she helps us lug our stuff upstairs for 2 or three nights!Ok, so we all have a few must haves. I take an iPad and my Linux hairdryer, frizz does not make me happy. I know friends who have to take a whole beauty system of lotions and potions. On the clothes and shoes front even a few days’ away calls for some judicious planning.

Friends can be very vague about the weekend amusements. Country evenings can be smarter than London. A long black skirt is an easy win if there will be a dressy dinner party on Saturday night. Keep the skirt casual just teamed with a silk shirt that can also be worn with slim trousers if the skirt is not needed.It’s a good idea to take a dress, lightweight enough to slip into your bag, casually chic enough to wear for any event. A fete or school visit, drinks and lunch. Apart from these few smart options it’s all about simple cotton pants, with crisp cotton shirts and cotton knit sweaters. The Breton stripes as T-top or sweater works all summer long whatever the location.These mini holidays are a far cry from hot beaches so not a bad idea to take along a cashmere sweater or a Pashmina wrap, for both warmth and glamour.
