THE MINI-BREAK EDIT

Fashion blogger Alexis Foreman, founder of Style Memos, reveals what she
packs for a mini-break in the sun.

PACKING LIGHT

“I love squeezing in a mini-break or two before our family summer holiday. It’s a chance to explore somewhere new with my husband James, and it’s an opportunity to unwind and to recce destinations for future family breaks.

“It’s not just the trip I enjoy – I actually love the packing bit! It’s a luxury packing just for myself without worrying about what my three boys will need.

“Over the last couple of years, I’ve finally got my head around how to pack light. Being decisive and brave with what you pack will pay off – not just in terms of baggage allowance, but also to make the process of getting ready much quicker while you’re away.”

Alexis Foreman's mini-break style

“I picked some simple pieces I know I’ll feel confident in from the new Marks & Spencer summer collection. They are typically me, in monochrome shades (that’s often my default when packing light) that transition well from day to night, city to beach.”

GETAWAY GROOMING

“I found a great selection of beauty essentials for my trip in M&S too, including James Read Sleep Mask Tan to get my skin holiday ready!”
