I was in Udaipur last weekend and in my last post I promised to share some of my tips on how to pack for a quick weekend trip. If you are following me in Instagram you must be knowing all about it already. In my previous post I also mentioned that I love to travel light. I am a sensible shopper and my style is pretty laid back and easy going. My heels are rarely that high and comfort is the key while I pick my clothes. Of course I put everything together in a way that adds in some style and fun. So while packing for a weekend trip I always keep in mind that I will have to carry the luggage myself and yes, I would obviously want to do some shopping during my trip and I will need that extra space in my baggages to bring them back home.
A weekend trip is rather small, I mean just 2 days can’t be called a long holiday! So basically packing for 2 days shouldn’t be all that difficult. But I have many friends who love to carry their whole world for those 2-3 days! 🙂 Of course there is nothing wrong in it! But here is what my luggage comprises of on a weekend trip.

Since the trip was during winter you can see dark colours and a jacket. During summer I mostly have some vibrant colours packed in for a weekend trip. I usually pack a dark skinny jeans that can be carried from day to night just by changing the top. One basic and one slightly stylised top are good enough for a weekend travel but during summer and in India you might have to carry several tops as it would get quite hot and humid. I pack one dress for evenings and mostly a printed one anticipating some special evening event but so far I have always ended up into an evening-do in my jeans when I am on an vacation. Still it’s better to carry one with a pair of high heels for any unforeseen special occasion! 🙂 I mostly wear flats as I know most of the travel trips comprises of a lot of walking and exploring new places and I would die if I have to walk for that long in high heels. I definitely don’t mind wedges but still, flats are the best. Just one big handbag, a pair of sunglasses and a mix of dainty and statement jewellery pretty much finishes my packing list for a weekend trip. I do carry a lip balm and one red lip colour just in case I feel like creating some colour drama while on the go! 🙂
In the cosmetic kit I have my basic skin care, shampoo and conditioner and a big bottle of sunscreen packed in. I mostly avoid foundation and just stick to a concealer when I am travelling for a vacation.
I feel that is all I need for a 2-3 days trip to a near by place. If I have some room left in my bag I preferably fill it with all the shopping that I do while in my vacation.
How does your weekend trip travel luggage look like? I am really curious to if you guys like to travel light like me or like to pack in a lot of things coz you never know what you might need! ? 🙂
