Packing for a Weekend Getaway – The Ultimate Guide
A common mistake made by many first-timers is over or under-packing. You stuff everything you think you might need into your luggage only to end up lugging around a huge bag full of stuff you never even took out of the bag!
While it is always good to be fully prepared for everything, sometimes less is more. Think about it; do you really need two pairs of jeans and five shirts for a two day trip?
Make your trip completely stress-free with these helpful packing tips for a weekend getaway:
A Chambray Shirt
Whether you’re headed to a poolside resort or the beach, or even plan on partying the night away, your chambray shirt will become your best friend for the entirety of your trip. The most versatile of options, the chambray shirt can act as a cover-up for your swimsuit, or can be paired with a fancy jacket and skinny jeans with heels for a night out on the town.
A Light Jacket
Sure, you’ve checked the weather forecasts for the trip a gazillion times and they say the weekend will be the brightest and sunniest of the year. But Mother Nature loves giving us surprises, and you never know when the weather might change all of a sudden! Keeping a light jacket with you during outdoor parties will help you get through the chilly night without a hitch. You’ll thank us later!
You may be planning on spending the entire weekend just in your resort flip-flops, but you’re very unlikely to be wearing the same if someone were to suggest anything outside of your resort! If your trip is going to involve a lot of walking, it might be a good idea to skip out on the heels and pack a pair of comfy sneakers instead!
An Evening Dress
Even if you know for sure you’re not going to any fancy dinners on your weekend trip, you never know when plans may change! Keeping a nice, fancy LBD or other cocktail dress in your bag to whip out as soon as someone yells “fancy dinner!” will make you thank the heavens for your foresight!
