The Stylecases Challenge

Now I've moved to Leeds I find myself going back and forth to London quite a bit and I have got quite adept at packing light and packing fast. When bonprix asked if I would like to get involved in the #stylecases I knew that it would be something I could really enjoy.

I love the range of clothing at bonprix they sell my sizes and also have next day delivery. Handy for when I'm going away on a Friday and feel I have nothing to wear on a Wednesday.

You can check out bonprix at 


Take one case, I usually end up taking a small bag that I can carry around, one that has lots of compartments on the outside so I can keep things separate.

A must for me is going on journeys in shoes that I find comfortable and yet can be dressed up or down. I chose these boots from bonprix that I think are wearable with dresses as well as jeans, plus if I wear them? More room in the case.

When it comes to outfits, I always try to take clothes in the case that I can just throw on, (no room for an iron in MY case) elastane is my God. Plus it means you can fold things up really small and have a lot more room in your bag. 

The dress I chose from bonprix is this eye-catching number and because it is stretchy it is comfortable on long journeys and yet still looks great at the end of your journey.

(I look quite mean here)

As the weather gets warmer and warmer I would probably leave a heavy coat behind and go for a light jacket or even a wrap just for the evenings.

And when it gets even warmer, I may even be packing THESE stunning spring dresses in my case. 

My tips for the #stylecases challenge

Pack light clothes that do not crease easily.

Wear bigger, heavier items on your journey like boots or jeans.

Pack items that are multi-use. A dress that you can take from day to evening with just a change of shoes is a great way to save space in your bag.

Clothing that you can roll up small means more space and a lighter bag.

What are your tips for packing? Do you pack light?

Let me know
