Minimalist Packing: Weekend Away for a Wedding.

My husband and I are going on a weekend road trip away, but it’s going to be very short and driving intensive. It will be about 10 hours one way. So we are leaving early tomorrow morning, attending a Saturday wedding, then leaving early Sunday morning. The nice thing is this means there isn’t much to pack! Here’s my quick list:


  • Friday clothes (have laid out tonight): loose tank top, athletic shorts, underwear, flip flops
  • Dressy-ish top, jean shorts, underwear
  • Pajamas
  • Swim Suit for hotel
  • Maxi dress for wedding, dressy sandals, underwear
  • Tank top/shorts for drive home, underwear
  • Rain Coat


  • Travel Size Face products (cleanser, toner, moisturizer, eye cream)
  • Travel Size fragrance (body mist + perfume)
  • Hair brush
  • Hair Products (heat protectant, hairspray)
  • Curling Iron
  • Makeup Bag

This will all easily fit in my backpack. Basically I have two sets of driving outfits, one outfit in case we go out into the city at all, and then the outfit for the wedding. I also will have a pair of socks and tennis shoes in my car just in case. Again, this trip is super short so there isn’t a need to pack much!
