Travel Packing Guide: Weekend Carry On – City Trip

This spring break is going to be a quick one for me, so Oliver and I are about to take a mini trip. We are flying to the East Coast this upcoming weekend and taking day trips to New York and Boston.

Since we are flying in to Newark and flying out of Boston, that means we have to pack pretty light. And when I mean light, I mean “let’s try to cram everything in my tote bag” kind of light. Seems impossible, but I think I would much rather carry less stuff then have to drag a suitcase around both cities when we visit. Plus, packing light means saving money on paying for that checked bag!

If you’re planning on taking a weekend trip and want to save on that checked bag, here’s the small packing list I’m following for my 3-day city trip.

Packing Guide Details

Jacket: Cotton Parka, H&M

Shirts: Modern stripe long sleeve, Gap // Denim Shirt, ASOS

Dress: Ribbed Jersey Dress, H&M

Jeans: Skinny Jeans, Target

Leggings: Jersey Leggings, H&M

Sleep T-Shirt: Linen V-Neck Top, H&M

Flats: Black Flats, Gap

Necklace: Gold Fringe Necklace, Francesca’s

Tote: Faux Leather Tote, Target

Small Purse: Crossbody Purse, Target

Cosmetics Bag: Cosmetics Bag, Nordstrom

The reason I chose what I did is because most of this stuff I could wear each day. The flats, the necklace, and the jacket, are all items that I can every day that I’m gone. I can also wear those leggings both under my dress and as PJ pants each night. Each of these things can fit in my tote with my laptop, while all the other small things (wallet, phone, chargers, book, journal, sunglasses) can fit in my smaller purse.

I love putting these types of lists together because they not only inspire me to wear what I own and shop in my closet, but to also pack light and save money when I travel! Happy weekend everyone, and happy spring break 🙂
