I learnt a few things this weekend my Shoelets and I thought there was nothing I needed to know about planning and packing for a 3 day weekend away.  This particular weekend away happened to be up in the Cotswolds for the much anticipated wedding of my good friend Bobbi.

Of course the wedding day outfit itself is thought of months beforehand. Shoes, hair and handbag for this occasion were pre~planned and discussed in length but the Friday and the Sunday outfits also needed just as much thought.  With the weather app for Bourton~on~the~water on my iphone saying sunshine mit a tiny bit of cloud I knew my outfits had to be summery, adaptable and comfortable.

What I learnt from my 3 day jaunt was this:

1. Getting a wax/mani/pedi/haircut/hairdye and what ever else it is that makes you feel a little more pulled together is SO worth it. I had all of those things done and they made me feel great.

2. Make sure the luggage you take is easily transportable. I had to go from bus to tube to train to bus…my faithful weekend bag and over the shoulder handbag served me well and was easy to carry. NICE. Especially if you have a heel. Nothing worse than tottering along with too big luggage. Been there. Done that. Got the bad back.

3. Going to a three day affair normally means there’s going to be an evening do on the Friday night. Take another outfit. I wasn’t actually bothered that I didn’t have anything to get changed into as it meant I could just carry on drinking in the bar but it would have been nice to freshen up and pop on something a little warmer for the evening.

4. DEFINITELY take a different outfit for the morning of the wedding. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t even thought about it! The wedding wasn’t until 3pm so I had to go down to breakfast in my Sunday outfit…and with bare feet! GUTTED!

5……take some more shoes! I had my ever faithful m&s wedges but to put on a heel to go down to breakfast was a little ott!

6. Always pop in a warm layer. Even though the forecast said sunshine and high temps I took my new favourite {see here} and was so grateful I did for 5am on the Sunday morning and for a weary train journey home where we had to stand.
