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!

  • A quick snap before we head out this morning, Sophie jumped in at the last second smiling with alllll her teeth 😍❤️ my shirt .. which is actually a bodysuit is @gentlefawn | hat @gigipip | shorts and cardigan @shophunnis | Hair curled with new wand from @conaircanada
  • May have gone a tad overboard on the swim gear a couple of days ago to get them excited for their swim lessons.

Goal: Can never be too prepared.

Reality: The whale floatie popped in our house the day I bought it, the morning of swim lessons was a rush to get ready, I regretted not findinng and organizing all their swimwear the night before, got breakfast through the drive through on the way over and somehow successfully completed day 1 of swim lessons. The kids were all smiles.... for the most part.
  • I was reading an article recently that said floral is the flavour of the year, thanks to the Royals serving a Lemon Elderflower wedding cake. Hopping right on that elderflower trend for this new recipe by experimenting with my new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch sparkling water maker.

Here's what I used: • @sodastream Sparkling Water that I created in seconds at home • Sparkling Elderflower
• Peaches
• Rosemary

Check out my latest blog post for the full recipe. 
Fun Tip: Turn any favourite sparkling water recipe by using half as much sparkling water and adding in your wine of choice (doesn't hurt to top it up with more berries either 😉 )

  • Picked up this wreath from @eucalyptuspopup today for a video shoot tomorrow (see my last post for what that’s about) and def think wreaths are perfect home decor all year round. What do you think?
  • A good night’s sleep makes a huge difference for how our kids behave throughout the day and how much energy they have to do the things they love!⠀
