Weekend Wardrobe Packing List: Travelling with only a Carry On

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!

  • This girl couldn’t be happier to do these matching hair photos together. Who wants to learn this look?
  • What if I told you creating latte art just got easier.....⠀
Because it has! I've been loving my new machine, but have been lacking on the ability to create beautiful latte art. I created a handful of latte art stencils for anyone else like me that just can't seem to get it right. ⠀
Since getting my Nespresso machine I have learnt so much. Not only have I been improving my latte making skills but I have also discovered more about how Nespresso is working towards being as sustainable as possible. Each of their capsules are made of aluminum, which is fully recyclable. Right now there are 51 recycling points across the country, and the number keeps growing. More about their recycling programs and those super cute free printables are up on the blog now.⠀

  • How she’s been asking me to tuck her in, with both babies by her head.
  • Guesssss what! @roxannredekop and I were chatting and we are going to be putting some video hair tutorials together. She’ll be helping me style mine and Sophie’s hair for our matching mom and mini photos and then she’ll teach you how to do it. I loved all your feedback on our first matching mom and mini hair post and I can’t wait to bring even more!
  • Trying to capture some product shots of the @sodastreamcanada FIZZI and this girl has other ideas. She's been getting involved so much with the behind the scenes (and in front of... swipe left) for the blog and it's so fun to see her loving it as much as I do. We introduced the SodaStream FIZZI into our home recently and have been enjoying turning our tap water into sparkling water in a matter of seconds. Curious about how it works? Sophie is giving a mini tutorial in my stories, I think I have a little YouTuber in the making.
I'm so excited to join the @SodaStreamCanada Stream Team this year and to start changing the world through bubbles. Up next, we are working on fun recipes and would love to share all your favorite flavoured water combos. C O M M E N T below what you like to mix into your water and I'll be putting together a blog post, linking your favorite mix back to your Instagram.
