Whisk Me Away

The days of glorious sunshine are becoming few and far between; walking around at night in a t-shirt is a distant memory.. Cross Street is definitely looking more grey than previous weeks. 

All that said, I can't think of a better time of year to be whisked away for a weekend. Whether it's an adventurous couple of days away with your girlfriends, romance and relaxing with your partner or just some time for yourself, a break is always welcome! 

Stressed by the prospect of packing light? To help, here's a little insight is a Tallulah girl's suitcase. These are our top picks when it comes to packing luxurious essentials.. 

Here is my Tallulah girl suitcase, packed to the brim, all essential of course! 

Douce Faveur Unpadded Bra and Knickers in Nude by Aubade |

Your always going to need a nude bra to sit perfectly under lighter colours, our top choice would be Douce Faveur in Nude by Aubade Paris. I've posted previously about all the dreamy details in this collection; it can't be beaten when it comes to a luxurious nude. 

Noeuds et Merveilles Padded Bandeau Bra and Knickers in Blush Pink by Chantal Thomass |

I love a bra that's gorgeously functional as well as just a beautiful piece. The padded bandeau from Noeuds et Merveilles by Chantal Thomass is just that. The blush pink colouring can be worn with anything; much like a nude. The moulded shape can bring perfect structuring to even the floatiest of tops and here's the best bit, you can remove the straps! 

I wasn't lying when I said this bra had everything from charm and good looks to impeccable functionality. A strapless is always an essential; here's the answer! 

Full Length 40's Gown in Jocelyn by Mary Green

For floating around the chateau whilst snow falls outside, or for lunch on the veranda under the midday sun this full length slip is dreamy! 

It's a great light alternative to wear to bed, but as I'm such a fan of underwear as outerwear I would wear this as a dress and layer according to my surroundings. 
I love exploring more of our beautiful United Kingdom when I get a spare weekend. Personally, for my weekend, I would pair this slip over leather look jeans, a silk camisole and a soft leather jacket on top.. 
Isabel Marant wedge sneakers for the day and and glistening Emmy Shoes for the evening; divine! 

Satin Touch 20 Stay-Up in Black and Twenties Tights in Honeycomb by Wolford |

There's a pair of Wolford's appropriate for every outfit. I would go for the Satin Touch 20 Stay-Up's in black for a dreamy evening look or to hook on to a gorgeous suspender belt in the boudoir. 
Autumn is approaching so I think the nude tights are going to be a staple from here on out, my favourite are the Twenties tights in honeycomb. The fine fishnet creates a gorgeous detail up close and from a distance gives the illusion of flawless legs.. Great for day to night! 

Silk Camisoles in Ivory and Black by Julianne |

A Julianne camisole or two, in ivory and black is everything you need from layering sheer tops and dresses. By far my favourite silk essential! The versatility of these pieces is extraordinary; from pairing with your favourite jeans for a sunny day's pub lunch to lounging in the evenings a Julianne camisole is always a luxurious staple. 

Opera Padded Plunge with Suspender Belt and Thong in Black and Gold by Chantelle |

A black bra is always necessary, so why not spruce it up with a touch of gold!? 
The padded plunge shape is flawless from Chantelle, not only does it shape well under t-shirts but it creates the most fabulous curves up top - as every plunge should! 

All of the lingerie sets packed in my suitcase are beautiful and boudoir worthy, but paired with the gorgeous deep suspender belt and thong Opera would definitely be my outfit of choice for a night in.. Less is more! 

Bracli Pearl Thong with Black Lace |

Room Service Short Kimono in Rose Pink and Black Vintage Lace Short Slip by Shell Belle Couture |

What could be a better occasion to wear your favourite slip and robe combinations than a weekend away? 
I would chose the Vintage Lace Slip and Room Service Kimono, to float around in. The completely sheer Vintage Lace Slip is super sexy and fabulous for being chased around an exciting new boudoir. The rose pink Room Service Kimono is the perfect robe to slip over the top when you want a little more coverage whilst lounging or getting ready in the mornings. 

Although they aren't a set, the black lace edging on the kimono is a cheeky suggestion of the beautiful black vintage lace that lays beneath! 

And of course, no boudoir outfit, weekend away or weekend for that matter.. would be complete without the Bracli Pearl Thong!
My choice is the black lace to match the Vintage Lace Slip. 
It also matches the sexy edging on the sleeves of the kimono if your feeling really daring! 

Just a suggestion.. 
A weekend away is the perfect time to try the, "I'm wearing the pearls tonight darling.." moment at dinner. The black lace also goes fabulously with the rest of the black and gold Opera set! Pearls and fabulous contouring, I'm good to you! 

The possibilities are endless. Versatile and easy to wear pieces is what you need when packing light or in this case for a cheeky September getaway! 
Follow my guide, take the stress out of packing and create some dreamy memories with a long weekend!
