Weekender Essentials

One of our major 2017 goals is to “get away from it all” more and more. That means: Weekender Essentials!

Personally, I think it’s a lot easier to get away when you 1) pack light and 2) organize your sh*t to within an inch of your life. David is more of a “throw it in a bag, and hope for the best!” type, but that makes my anxiety go wibbly-wobbly.

I really like a giant duffel bag that can fit all of our stuff, together.

Then, I know I need to corral all of our tech into one spot. Modern day travel can’t happen without at least two phones, two cameras, and a Kindle. Right?

Also, I personally believe in always segmenting clean from dirty laundry. No one wants smelly socks touching what they’re gonna wear tomorrow! And gone are the days of cramming things into a hotel garbage bag (#guilty). Now I bring my own laundry bags.

We almost always bring our dogs with us when we go somewhere, so I’m eyeing pre-made doggo travel kits. Normally we load up a reusable grocery tote with food, leashes, treats, and whatnot but I think it might be a bit less conspicuous to roll into a hotel with a chic bag instead of something with RALPH’S emblazoned on the side.

My other weekend essentials? Unisex hats and sunglasses, like Ray-Bans and straw Panama hats. I actually usually travel with contacts instead of my glasses; it means that I don’t have to switch specs every time I enter or leave a building. And it means more room in my bag for picking up little treasures along the way. But traveling with just a few pieces that work on both of us? Frees up a lot of room in the luggage!

And finally– I can’t stress this enough– SUNSCREEN. We’re indoor kids to the fullest degree, and all that strolling around outdoors means way more sun exposure than we’re used to, even in SoCal.
