Weekend Getaway – What I Packed!

I have been working in Regina since yesterday and head back to Saskatoon tonight after my case to spend the weekend with my hubby and his grandparents! We rarely get to go on road trips together as we both work and travel so much so I have really been looking forward to this weekend even though it is a combo work/pleasure trip!

While I was packing I thought I might as well share what I am packing and how I plan my outfits! Driving is a whole nother ball game as you can bring as much junk as you want and you aren’t limited by weight or number of bags however I didn’t want to go overboard! I much prefer driving personally because I can set my own schedule and don’t have to worry about shopping too much and not having enough luggage room for my junk!!;)

The key to packing for any trip is to coordinate your outfits. You shirts should go with every pant or skirt you bring and your shoes should work with every outfit combination. This may mean you go with a monochrome look and add colour in your accessories! If you are just throwing things in your luggage for the sake of packing you are wasting valuable space! I can bring 2 tops and 3 bottoms that all work together and have 6 outfits for a trip! Packing when it is cold out is also more difficult because your items tend to be thinker, giving you even more reason to plan! With the weather scheduled to be around 5-10C I am going to be layering up like crazy! The trip is 4 days, 2 work, 2 casual days so this is what I am packing!

Hope you enjoy! xo
