Weekend trips in the summer are essential. East coast…west coast, doesn’t matter – there’s plenty of options of where to go and what to see. BUT, that’s not what we are focussing on today. Today we are talking about how to make those weekend trips a breeze and as easy peasy as possible. We love them and want more of them so to make it simple makes it easier to do more of them! Let’s see how two A-type individuals have minimized their bags and maximized their time away!
First, two dresses. That’s it. That’s all you need. Almost. A cute white dress and a cute blush dress are really all you need and you’re good to go. You can wear either of them during the day with your Adidas Stan Smith sneakers or you can dress them up with casual heels in the evening. That’s all! We also love our Chanel wallet purse for weekend trips so that all our essentials fit in perfect and you can wear it cross body during the day or clutch style at night.
Next, the little things. It always feels like there’s so many little things needed for a long trip and just as many for a weekend trip. So, all we did was take those essential items and minimize them. We use a sheer pink gloss all day and all night when we are away. We also use small sample size perfumes and never go anywhere without our Touche Eclait. We put all our little essentials into our cosmetic bag so that they are easy to find and not buried at the bottom of our bag.
Finally, the simplest things… We love lace bras and barrettes for short weekend trips so that they are easy to fold and sexy if the mood suits. We also depend heavily upon our Louis Vuitton square scarf. It acts as a shall so that you don’t need to pack a bulky sweater or cardigan and it acts as another layer if you want a splash of colour with your two dresses.
Packing list? 1 weekend, 2 dresses, 1 runner, 1 heel, 1 purse, 2 underwear, 1 bra, 1 scarf, some cosmetics and a PASSPORT and you’re off for the weekend with the most essential packing program!
