Weekend Getaway Packing List

Thursday, March 14, 2013

I've been going on a few weekend trips lately and I have a few more coming up so I've been trying to master the art of packing light, yet effectively. A weekend carry-all back is a great place to start, along with mini toiletries, smart, all-weather clothing choices and some trinkets for entertainment.

Weekend Getaway Packing List

Design History Open Cardigan - flowy for warm weather but large enough for the cold (on sale!)
  J Brand white boyfriend jeans - the relaxed fit is good for a plane or car ride 
TOMS skimmer flats - these are easy to slide on or off and I love the cute skull print! (on sale!)
 Marc by Marc Jacobs weekend bag - great and stylish carry-all for all this stuff!
GiGi NY all in one clutch - easy to throw in a few lip balms or accessories
BCBG sunglasses - love this style!
 Kate Spade umbrella - you can never predict the weather! 
Kate Spade earbuds - in case you need to jam to some tunes or mellow out and take a nap
Diptyque great for dry lips when traveling
Bliss body moisturizer  - to keep those cracked hands moisturized
Viva La Juicy Rollerball - to stay fresh when traveling through public places
Defending Jacob - great page turning murder mystery, leaves you guessing til the very end! 
Minimergency Kit for Her - has everything you might need in an emergency like mini deodorant wipes, breath freshener and a sewing kit
Kitsch 'Neopop' Hair Ties (5-Pack) - for a quick pony tail

What do you pack for a weekend getaway?
