Previously I covered how to pack efficiently. Now, here’s how to pack for a weekend trip!
With a busy schedule, it can be difficult to travel for long periods of time. But sometimes a weekend trip can be just as exciting as an extended vacation. Whether you spend a month planning or spontaneously leave on a Friday night, here are the essentials for a weekend trip.
Clothing: When deciding what to wear, I start from the layers closest to my body and build outwards. This method helps me to visualize what each outfit will look like.
Base Layers: Socks/tights, underwear, undershirts/camis, thermals, PJs
Tops: two shirts, one sweater, one jacket, one dress if applicable
Bottoms: 1-2 pairs pants or leggings or shorts, 1-2 pairs shoes
Accessories: 1 scarf (if applicable), jewelery, 1 purse/bag in addition to suitcase
Toiletries: toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, deodorant, lotion/sunscreen, make-up, shaving items, shampoo/conditioner, soap, etc.
These are only the basics and different locations/events may call for additional items. But this list can get you started on a weekend of fun!
