A Weekend Away

We are escaping at the weekend, its only our 3rd time away from the children, 1st time it was for hubby 40th trip to NYC and we have had a night way in the Lakes for a friends wedding......... so we are looking forward to this.....of course a will miss N&L but Mama needs her batteries recharging!!!

So what do I plan to take with me for my two nights in Barcelona.....I am only taking carry on luggage. I would advise before packing to check the weather, ask hubby for itinerary and then lay your outfits out on the bed to see if they work. It's not time to do outfit experimenting, take outfits that you love and know that work. I learnt that the hard way and we once went to Palma for the weekend to watch Simply Red in concert at the Bull Ring .......( I wasn't  a Simply Red fan before......amazing..... I think the venue helped! ) I took new stuff, I didn't do a try on session and was left with a fashion disaster!


I am going to take my Monsoon Camilla Jacket to travel in with Jeans and my Johnnie Boden Breton. Similar Jacket I have found is this Mango Red Pasiley Jacket £44.99


My beloved Boutique by Jaeger White embroidery top will be in my case, this gorgeous top from Topshop has a similar look, Topshop Embroidered Blouse £38.00



We are going on Saturday evening to a Michelin star restaurant so I will need something smart for dinner, I did toy with the idea of a dress but the Spanish are so relaxed, I am going to wear my trusted outfit of black Gap Capri pants and red Whistles structured top with my black Louboutins and my Chanel for a touch of glamour. I have found some alternatives..........

and then for Sunday evening I assume will be tapas bars so more casual, I will wear my and Other Stories Blouse in black with my boyfriend jeans and try and fit in with the cool street style girls of Barcelona!

Anyway I am going to love you and leave you til next week, hopefully with lots of outfit pictures.

Thanks for reading,
