How To: Packing for a Weekend Trip

Hey everyone! As the summer months are fast approaching, I find myself planning for different trips and excursions. Traveling is my favorite thing to do and I think that I have now truly mastered the art of packing for a trip. Whether you are traveling for weeks, a month, or even just a few days, it is easy to pack more than what you need. I will be traveling on a couple of weekend trips throughout this next month, and I'd love to show you what my packing essentials are. Please leave me a comment below and let me know what your travel essentials are. As always, I hope you are having an AWESOME day! :)
With love,

The Bag:
I love traveling with a small, compact, hard piece of luggage. This particular bag is from Target and is the perfect size for a weekend trip. It offers me enough storage and compartments for all of my clothes and shoes. If you're looking for a more affordable higher end piece of luggage, try Marshalls or T.J. Maxx for great finds!
I also really love traveling with a bag I can carry around throughout the day. I like to choose something with enough storage for the things I will need throughout the day, but a bag that has a cross body and will be comfortable to carry. I absolutely love my Michael Kors Large Selma Houndstooth bag for a carry on, and a perfect purse for a day of sight seeing and shopping! (It also conveniently matches).
Sample Packing List: Weekend trip to Boston (Shopping, Museums, etc.)
2 Nights, 3 Days
