Weekend vacations appear to be the most straightforward to pack for. They are, nevertheless, always the most difficult. Weekends should be straightforward. The journey will be brief, the weather will be consistent, and you will most likely know what you will be doing. However, packing small for a weekend trip can be difficult. We all have a tendency to pack as much as we can, rather than just what we require.
It’s a weekend getaway so you have to look good. Your dressing code should be on point and have simple but outstanding makeup. Pick on your favorite hairstyle, cute earrings have your best lipstick, and also have your cluster mink eyelashes look gorgeous to complete the entire look. Below is a list of items you should include when packing for your weekend getaway.
Travel Day Outfit
Especially if you are flying, the clothes you wear to travel should be the bulkiest of the vacation. Wear your heaviest, bulkiest clothing like jeans, sweater, boots, jacket to save room in your backpack. You can easily remove a layer and store it in the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you if you grow too hot during the journey.
A light jacket with zippered pockets should be part of your travel outfit. The pockets will provide additional storage space for items such as your wallet, phone, chapstick, boarding card, and other travel day necessities. When you go through airport security, the zippers will keep your belongings safe.
When it comes to packing, shoes are always a challenge. Even on a three-day trip, it is easy to convince yourself that you need a second pair of shoes. This is a temptation you should avoid. Instead, bring one pair of shoes that you can wear for the entire weekend. Your shoes should be comfy enough to wear all day while also looking beautiful enough to wear out to dinner.
Choose warm, comfy footwear in the cold. In the summer, sandals or sneakers are ideal. If desired, you may always add flip-flops for the beach or pool. The majority of them will fit in the water bottle compartment of your bag. They are very essential items that should not miss in your backpack.
Allowing your skin to suffer while on vacation is not a good idea. No matter how long your trip is, you should always carry your favorite cleanser and moisturizer. A high-quality toiletry bag is great for storing your toiletries. This one comes with a hook so you can hang it in the bathroom, and it’s big enough to hold your shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, body wash, cosmetics, and other toiletries.
Avoid overpacking electronic devices. You can leave your work laptop at home for such a short excursion. You can also forgo the tablet because you will either be driving or taking a short flight. In any case, your flight may be too short to watch a movie. For short flights, I prefer to use a Kindle as in-flight entertainment. If you prefer to listen to music or a podcast, you will also have your phone and earbuds.
Even if you are not going to the beach, it is a good idea to bring a swimsuit with you. You might relax in the hotel’s pool or hot tub. This shirt is one-of-a-kind, and the halter string allows you to customize the fit. It is one of the outfits that will make you feel free and flexible due to its stretching ability. Never miss a swimsuit in your backpack for your next weekend getaway.
Waterproof Phone Cover
You might be tempted to carry your phone in with you if your excursion takes you anywhere near water to shoot a few selfies. It has been a routine when we go for vacations or getaways we take a lot of photos to always keep the memories fresh. With this waterproof pouch, you can now make it happen. It is also great for when there is a freak thunderstorm or other unpredictably bad weather!
A Travel Wallet
It is critical to have a safe and orderly place to put your ID, money, and credit cards while traveling. With this Leather wallet, you can protect your privacy and personal information. This one has enough room for everything and will keep you well-organized on your trip with all your documents secured.
When it comes to packing, as I always say, less is more. Obviously, it depends on where you are going, so prepare a note of the specific activities you will be doing and what you will need to wear for them while you are packing at home. This type of pre-planning will prevent you from packing too much luggage.
To avoid overpacking on a car or airline vacation, pick comfy clothes that you can re-wear over the weekend. Another tip is to wear your heaviest goods on the plane to lighten your carry-on! Keep an eye on the weather prediction as well. Try out our packing list in your next weekend getaway.
