Autumn Packing Tips for a Weekender in the UK

No matter how much I travel, getting the suitcase out of the loft does not fill me with excitement. With the winter months closing in, and Autumn now in full swing I thought I would throw together a post on packing for a weekend in UK in autumn. Less is certainly more when you do a weekend break, and with this in mind here are my tips for spending 48 hours on a staycation!

Floaty dresses

Dresses have become a staple for me this year. I used to hate wearing dresses, and only ever wore them when going out somewhere special, but as I begun to invest in more casual dresses I started wearing them for work, and out and about at weekends. I have bought a few this summer, and ready for autumn, including this striped ASOS dress, which literally goes with everything, and a couple from my favourite store FatFace.

Basic tops (or just breton)

I am obsessed with basic tees, whether that is my favourite, a breton long sleeved top, or a black basic tee from New Look. I have recently bought a bulk of basic tees from New Look from their eco-range in preparation for layering throughout autumn and winter. I’ve got two in each colour (black, grey and white), and then of course I have invested in a couple of new breton tops from both Joules, and FatFace. I love this top from FatFace and it fills me with autumnal vibes.

Khaki trousers

I own some lovely khaki workers trousers, which have become my staple this autumn. They go with everything and are super comfortable – I got my pair from FatFace but again they’ve sold out. There’s some similar ones here on ASOS.

Wide leg jeans

I recently bought these wonderful jeans from FatFace, however I have just gone to look online and they’ve sold out! They are the comfiest things I have ever worn, croppped leg, and have a small tie fastening at the back. They are perfect for a sunday morning stroll, matched with Converse and a basic t-shirt. There are similar ones from ASOS which you can find here.

Slip-on shoes

FatFace came out with a killer collection of shoes this summer and I snapped up three pairs of their slip on shoes. Their Meldon sandals sold out in record time, so I grabbed a silver pair.




I can’t go anywhere without my Converse, and I take them on every trip without question. They go with everything, they’re comfy and I know they won’t give me blisters when we are walking around a city exploring for 10 hours in a day. They can also be jazzed up with a dress for evening wear, and dressed down with leggings and a top for airport travel. They go with everything and are super comfy. I’ve worn Converse since my emo days at the age of thirteen!

Slogan t-shirts

I didn’t really jump on the bandwagon with this one, but I did get two slogan t-shirts, one from ASOS and one from FatFace. The one from FatFace had the wonderful wording ‘anything is possible’ which I loved, whilst the ASOS one opted for ‘nothing to wear’. You can buy it here.

Throwover jacket

I also grab a jacket  and my two favourites at the moment are my Tasha Mid Denim Jacket, and a khaki coloured Hastings Garment Dye Military Jacket, for when the nights get colder, and I know these two will last me throughout autumn, and maybe even winter too.


Winter coat

And lastly but not least, the first winter coat I have bought this year is this super cosy boucle coat from Tokyo Laundry! It the warmest thing I have ever worn and it’s great hues really do go with every outfit, slouchy leggings, or dressed up jeans.
