Everything you need for the ultimate winter getaway
Dragging yourself out of bed on a winter morning wouldn’t be so bad if you didn’t have to go to work. Alas, you’re still paying for that bed. Make the dreary mornings a little easier by scheduling a relaxing weekend away as soon as you can manage it — a few days in a cabin somewhere or at a beachside B&B, and you will be as good as new and ready to handle what remains of your winter office days. Here’s everything you should pack for an out-of-town weekend break.
Layering is for outdoor endeavours; all you’ll need indoors is this throw.
Pack a cardigan for when you have to venture outside (to restock on snacks and hot chocolate.)
Be prepared for any surprise social engagements with a cute, warm sweater.
Take a heavy-duty outer layer along with you – you’ll need something warm for the journey. No need to worry about fitting it into your weekend bag, you'll be wearing it on the way.
Peace and quiet is good for creativity. Make sure you write down all the amazing ideas you come up with.
Weekends indoors don’t have to be spent bingeing on series. Take a break from screens with some old-school pop trivia.
Winter 2017’s off-duty uniform is pairing sweats in matching colours. Score this season’s must-have in light grey.
It’s always worth getting the matching set. When your weekend relaxation is over, these are also super useful for keeping warm on your early morning jogs.
Cosy doesn’t mean cluttered — use a sturdy jute basket to stash away the shoes, clothes, or books you’re not using and maintain the zen.
Pack it all up for the road in a carry-all that will see you through the weekend and still be ready to take you to the office come Monday morning.
