How to pack for a long weekend

Yes, you know that you will only be away for a weekend. Two nights and three full days. Pack light, right? An overnighter not a suitcase, you remind yourself.  

We have all done it … convinced ourselves that we need that extra shirt and that third pair of shoes, yet still spent the weekend with a full suitcase and nothing to wear. 

Well, in a team effort at D&D we have pulled together a list of essentials for you weekend packing. 

1. The perfect plain white and striped tee. Either can be worn through the day with your cut offs or night with heels. 

Adam Lippes, Pima Cotton T-shirt, £82. Shop here.

Isabel Marant Étoile, Karon striped linen T-shirt, £110. Shop here

2. Your favourite pair of D&D's - obviously! And the good news they are a multi-purpose-thing. Wear them to bed OR take them onto the streets with a pair of jeans. 

Desmond & Dempsey, Navy Dempsey Signature Set, £95. Shop here.

3. THE Jeans. Everyone loves them at the moment - we know. But they just fit waaay too good if you ask us ... 

Levis, Levis 501, £85. Shop here.

4. Chill-Mode-Entertainment. For the plane, for the beach, for your parents' couch. Is there anything better then reading a new mag cover to recover (ideally with a cocktail in hand)? Holiday Magazin is our new favourite. 

5. Go old-school. Stop scrolling and start shaking ...

Fujifilm, Instax Mini 8, £64,99. Shop here.


You may enjoy your weekend now ...
