The Friday Five | Essentials I'm Packing for The Lakes

It's Friday again!! Which means it's time for another TFF. I'm extra excited this particular Friday as not only is the weekend ahead of me, but a feel week off work! On Monday I'm heading back to my happy place in the Lake District for the week and I could not be more giddy. Nothing makes me feel more at peace than a trip to the Lakes.

Now, about 2 weeks ago the sun was hitting us up with some scorching hot weather and giving us a glorious taste of summer. This week it's been pretty darn dismal and I've definitely turned the heating on a few times. Now clearly I'm hoping for that summer heat to find it's way back to us while I'm in the Lakes, but I'm starting to come to terms with the fact that might not happen.. but also might? Can we really trust the weather forecast? Needless to say, deciding what to pack is a little confusing. I'm going to have to prepare for all eventualities and I've picked out my 5 essentials for building the rest of my outfits around.

1. A cute Pac a Mac
An absolute essential for those showers I'm hoping won't come! Like this one from ASOS.

2. Walking Shoes
Because no adventure should include sore feet! I have these ones from Go Outdoors and they've never done me wrong, regardless of the weather.

3. Lightweight Shorts
Like these from Asda.  I have all my fingers and toes crossed for the sun making an appearance. And if that happens, no one wants to make clambering up hillsides a sweatier affair that it needs to be!

4. Leggings, and plenty of them!
For those chilled out days in the lodge, and to pair with a long jumper on a colder day. Thick leggings, thing leggings, all the leggings.

5. Basic tops, and again, plenty of them!
Vest tops save my life. They'll go with anything. Layer them under things when it's cold, wear them on their own when it's hot out. Winner.

Obviously these aren't the only clothes I'll be taking. But these are the five essential pieces that I hope will get me through my week in the Lakes regardless of the weather!
