How To Pack For a Weekend Trip

10:00 AM

Since I'm in Europe I've been doing quite a few weekend trips. These trips require packing lightly and that is something that I'm just not good at doing. I always, always overpack and bring stuff I definitely do not need. 

Desde que estoy en Europa he estado haciendo pequeños viajes los fines de semana. En estos viajes me he dado cuenta de que es súper necesario empacar poquitas coas y eso es algo en lo que, de verdad, no soy buena. Siempre empaco de más y me llevo cosas que no necesito y ni saco de la maleta. 

I've realized that what I need to do for these kind of trips is pack neutral colored clothes that you can mix and match. Basic garments that you can wear one or two times during the weekend (aka jeans). 

Me he dado cuenta de que lo que necesitas hacer cuando empacas para este tipo de viaje es llevar ropa en colores neutrales que puedas combinar en distintas formas e incluso ponerte más de una vez durante el fin de semana (léase jeans). 

Depending on the weather of the place your going, the clothes are going to change obviously. However, take into consideration that if you're going to a cold place you need layers. Layers are life savers. Remember you will only be cold if you're outside because everywhere you go will have the heat on, so think about how much time you're going to be spending outside so that you pack accordingly. 

Depende de a dónde te dirijas el tipo de ropa que empaques va a cambiar, obviamente. Sin embargo, toma en consideración que si vas a un lugar frío, las capas te salvarán la vida. Además acuérdate que sólo vas a tener frío si estás afuera porque en todos lados va a haber calefacción. Piensa qué tanto tiempo piensas pasar afuera para que empaques de acuerdo a esto. 

Some cheap airlines (which we all like) like RyanAir have luggage restrictions and are not cheap if check in your luggage. Because of this you also have to pack lightly and make everything fit in a carry on in case you're flying in one of these airlines. 

Si estás en Europa y vas a viajar en una aerolínea barata como Ryan Air, el documentar equipaje es caríimo entonces necesitas lograr que todo lo que lleves quepa en tu equipaje de mano para que siga siendo un vuelo barato. 

This is what I would pack (try to fit everything inside that very cute backpack) for a weekend away. Two basic neutral colored tops, one pair of jeans that you can wear both times, comfortable shoes to walk around, a coat and scarf to stay warm and a nicer blouse, shoes and clutch in case you go some place nice for dinner or if you plan to go out. If you're not planning this, totally not necessary. Plus some travel sized shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, etc. 

Esto es lo que empacaría, e intentaría que cupiera en la mochila, para un viaje de fin de semana. Dos blusas básicas en colores neutrales, unos jeans que te puedes poner ambos días, zapatos cómodos para caminar mucho, un abrigo y una bufanda para estar calientita, además de un outfit más bonito en caso de que quieras salir en la noche. Si no planeas hacer esto, obviamente no es necesario llevar ropa para arreglarte más. 

All these items you can find at and you should totally check them out because they're all so cute and it these outfits would look so amazing on you! 

Todas estas cosas las puedes encontrar en y de verdad que deberías checarlas porque estan muy baratas y estoy segura que estos outfits se te verían increíbles!
