Travel Takes

Packing for a Weekend Trip: Travel Like a Pro the weather heats up, your weekends start to fill with last-minute getaways. Although these trips tend to be just two to three days, packing for them is difficult. It’s easy to overanalyze your packing needs when considering weather, your weekend agenda and level of activity (seven outfits isn’t overboard for a weekend, right?) Packing for your weekend trip shouldn’t be this painful — in fact, we think it should be a breeze (even for over-packers)! Product Manager and weekend getaway guru, Kelli, has mastered the art of savvy packing. Find out how she saves space and the only items she’s okay over-packing.

“My go-to bag is the Iconic Weekender. It fits all my extra outfits and is a great size for over-packing.”



“I love traveling with the Hanging Organizer. It’s water resistant, large enough to fit your full-size toiletries and see-through to keep you organized.”



“A girl has to have options. If you’re like me, you have lots of shoes you need to pack. The Market Tote is a great size to fit ALL of them!”
