I’ll admit it…I use to be the a master overpacked and it drove me nuts! There is nothing more annoying then packing 47 items in a massively oversized suitcase when you end up only wearing 8 of the 47 items you packed, am I right?! I always found it easier to pack for a 7-day trip verse a 3-day one due to the fact that it was okay to bring a few more items which allowed you to mix and match more buuuut I realized that packing for those quick weekend trips are no different. Packing my favorite basics and essentials (aka only what I can fit in a carry on) has made traveling so much easier!
Spring + summer tend to loaded with quick weekend trips so here is my go-to 15 item packing list for fun travel days to somewhere sunny!
Neutral bodysuit. I brought this Forever 21 white bodysuit to San Diego last weekend and I wore it with everything!
Blouse or Tunic. A pretty blouse or tunic is always a easy piece to bring along.
Denim cut-offs. I pretty much never go anywhere without these.
Two dresses. You know I’m a dress lover and they are perfect for traveling, one and done! I like to take a maxi and a mini, one with a pattern and one solid.
Shoes. Limiting myself to a only few shoes is probably the hardest packing task for me. I try to keep it to three pairs. Sandals (lace-ups or slides), tennis shoes (either workout sneakers or a comfy tennis shoe if you’re going to be doing a lot of walking) and a fancier shoes (wedges or a nude heel)
Straw hat. Because who wants to wash their hair on vacation? No one.
Cozy sweater/sweatshirt. I also brought a darling pink lace up sweatshirt to SD and it was perfect for a breezy beach day (I can’t find it online right now but I’ll keep looking for it babes, I got it recently from Forever 21)
Crossbody bag. Easiest to carry around beings that your hands/arms are always free!
Keep in mind to bring only your favorite pieces that are super easy to mix + match! Hope this helps your next mini vacay – packing totally doesn’t have to suck. Have a great weekend, friends! As always, thank you so much reading xx
