Weekend Wardrobe Packing List: Travelling with only a Carry On
1

Every time that I go away I always tell myself that I am going to pack less. Does it ever happen? Not often. I tend to pack last minute, without a list, and then just grab all the things. This weekend when I pack for Portland I want to do it differently. My goal is to pack everything I need for my four day, three night trip inside my carry on. With the help of Samantha of The Family Jewels and her Weekend Wardrobe Packing List I am pretty confident that travelling with only a carry on will be a breeze.

Samantha has a minimalist style and is always looking pretty dang good. With a number of trips under her belt and her fashion sense, I fully trust her packing list to be more then enough for a weekend. I have put together a little graphic for you to go off of when you need to create your packing list as well. Don’t forget to add your essentials, this list is for your wardrobe only.

A few more tips for your Weekend Wardrobe Packing List to be successful…

  • Choose neutral colours for tops and/or bottoms to give yourself more outfit options.
  • Pack your hat into your suitcase upside down, and fill the crown of the hat with rolled up clothing. Add clothing around the brim to ensure it does not bend.
  • Pick a bag that isn’t too large that can be worn for both day and night (ie. crossbody)
  • Pack shoes that you know you can wear all day!

Have fun and enjoy your additional time to have fun and not wait for your baggage!
