Packing Essentials for Your Relaxing Winter Getaway

We can hardly believe it’s already November, it seems like just a moment ago we were putting our New Years health plan into action! We had very good intentions of fresh fruit smoothies every morning, a three mile run before work and an evening pilates session but, well, life can get in the way sometimes can’t it?

As we head into these dark, cold, winter months it’s more important than ever to be feeling good and beating the blues. So why not book yourself a little winter getaway?

A long weekend, a peaceful meditation retreat or even a week in the Lake District can give you the perfect opportunity to relax your mind, body and soul. Rejuvenate, unplug and enjoy a little time away from the emails and a little more time practicing yoga, eating delicious healthy foods and getting a good nights sleep. It sounds just heavenly, and it’s what your body deserves.

We’ve teamed up with one of our favourite ethical causal wear brands KokoNorth to bring you the ultimate list of packing essentials for your weekend of self care…

Red Floral Kaftan

If you’re spending time in the spa, this kaftan is ideal for slipping over your bikini for when you want to feel a little more covered up. It also doubles up as a gorgeous daytime dress and looks fabulous paired with an ankle boot and denim jacket. We love a versatile piece!

Harem Pants in Elephant Print

How adorable are these harem pants? We simply love the elephant print. These are the perfect pair of yoga trousers (allowing you to stretch that bit further!) and ideal for taking away on your relaxing weekend. Ditch the pencil skirt and tight jeans and opt for these comfortable, loose cut harems handmade by local artisans in Northern Thailand!

Harem Pants in Tribal Print

Once you wear your first pair of harem trousers, you’ll never want to own a pair of tight fitting bottoms again! For a slimmer fit, this particular style is perfect. The lightweight material is breathable and the trousers are also 100% handmade. A great item to travel in, offering the ultimate in comfort and of course, style! The tribal print looks great teamed with a plain black cami and a pair of your favourite espadrilles.

Palazzo Pants in Peacock Print

The palazzo pants offer a wider fit and can be easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Team with a plain t shirt for exercise and lounging, add a statement necklace and biker jacket for a look that suits heading off for dinner. Luckily, the elasticity waistband means you can eat alllll of the food.

Beach Wrap Skirt in Turquoise

If you’re lucky enough to be heading somewhere with warmer temperatures than the UK right now (errr hello we are FREEZING) then be sure to pack a handy sarong wrap. This beautiful turquoise patterned sarong is a real must-have and perfect for lazy days on the beach. We’re currently dreaming of running away to a peaceful health retreat in Thailand, a last minute winter getaway perhaps? Who’s with us?

We can’t wait to get our hands on some of these beautiful, handmade pieces of clothing. For us fashion is about feeling great, looking great, but also supporting artisans and small businesses that truly value their product and follow ethical practices.
