This is a step-by-step packing guide for summer weekend trips, for women. Follow the steps and you'll take out all the emotion behind packing. And you'll get it all done quickly.


Here are the steps to follow along:

Step one:
First, put your transit clothes to the side. I've got jeans and a tank with a sweater. This outfit is comfy and versatile. Include a small purse, you'll use for the trip. And the jewelry you'll wear all weekend. This sweater will be my go-to sweater any time I need warmth all weekend.

Step two:
Throw in your favorite pair of shorts and your favorite light jeans or capris. If your jeans or capris are already in your transit clothes, throw in a pair of cropped leggings in case you want to work out.

Step Three:
Throw in your two favorite casual tops that can go on top of your jeans or shorts.
And throw in one favorite dressy top.

Step Four:
Pick your favorite sundress that you can wear during the day or during the night - with or without your jeans or leggings.

Step Five:
One pair of your favorite PJs appropriate to your lodging situation. Be prepared in case other people might be seeing you in your pjs.

Step Six:
Pack those extras in a baggy.
4 pairs underwear
2 bras -- remember you'll also have your bra you are wearing in transit. Make sure to pack the right colors. You may want to include a sports bra for physical activity.
3 pairs socks -- Appropriate to shoes
1 bathing suit
1 scarf/sarong

Step Seven:
Toiletries in a baggy -- Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, face wash, face cream, makeup remover, toothbrush, toothpaste, basic makeup, brush.

Step Eight:
Pick your two to three pairs of shoes -- no more than that!
1 pair of sandals
1 pair flats
1 pair heels or tennis shoes
Put one pair with your transit clothes. The other two go in your suitcase.

Pack it all up and you are DONE!!
So easy, right??
