What to pack this long weekend | Our essentials for a glamorous escape...

Whether you're travelling to another area of the country or simply from the bedroom to the lounge this long weekend, we've rounded up our must-have items to make it a mini-break fit for a queen.




If you had to pack one item of jewellery... | New to the Site, 1970s Dallas Earrings

Possibly the most versatile piece of jewellery in our edit right now, these sculptural 1970s earrings from Texas will pair perfectly with a favourite oversized shirt or chunky cashmere and a simple up-do, whilst also looking just as glam for evening with a black blazer, high waisted denim and your favourite winter boots.  Sourced from a private collection from Texas and in immaculate condition, shop the Dallas earrings, here.

Wear all-day sleepwear | The Ginia Silk V-Neck Nite Dress, from Ballantynes

Whenever visiting our friends and Olympia by L&O Stockists, Ballantynes, it's impossible not to peruse the remainder of the heritage department store for their curation of wares. Last time we were on site we picked up a few pieces from the beautiful silk sleepwear brand, GINIA and have been obsessed ever since.  

Crafted from pure silk, we'll be wearing their V Neck Nite Dress all weekend long, layered with a cosy cashmere cardigan and our favourite jewels. We love that this simple, delicate piece also works as a slip dress for evenings out when back in the city.  Shop the Nite Dress here, and shop our Olympia by L&O collection at Ballantynes, here.

The Multitasker | Vintage Christian Dior 100% Silk Scarf

A highly underrated accessory, not only does a chic silk scarf take up almost no room or weight when it comes to packing, this versatile piece can be worn in so many ways, making it a must-have for a long weekend away. Tie on your bag handle, use it as a head scarf or as a ponytail bow, as a bandeau top under a favourite blazer, thread it through your jeans as a belt alternative or, of course, wear around the neck in the traditional way. Pack this 100% Silk Vintage Christian Dior baby alongside one or two other colour ways for maximum #OOTD options. 


The Skincare Essentials | Drunk Elephant 'Bare With Us' Kit

We have long waxed lyrical about our love for Drunk Elephant skincare so as soon as we saw they had a mini's set available at MECCA, we just had to add to cart without hesitation.

Combining the brand's top sellers including their Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser, TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial, C-Firma Day Serum, Lala Retro Whipped Cream and D-Bronzi Anti Pollution Serum, it has everything you need for fresh, beautiful, dewy skin on the go with its six-step routine, in a packable travel size.  Shop the Bare With Us set here.
