Packing for an Overnight Trip & Lilly Pulitzer Pineapple Dress

Happy weekend, y’all!

Hubby and I are spending our Saturday lounging poolside at his parent’s house. We left yesterday evening after work, spent the night last night, and are coming home tonight. A quick 24 hour jaunt.

I always find it so difficult to pack for an overnight trip. Historically, I overpack and don’t use half of the stuff I bring. This time I tried to be more intentional with my packing. Here are my tips for bringing less on your next quick trip…

  1. Leave your hair products and styling tools ate home: I washed, dried, and styled my hair Friday morning, so I left my hair products and blow dryer at home. Instead, I threw a can of dry shampoo in my bag.
  2. Limit yourself to two pairs of shoes: Shoes take up tons of space. I packed a pair of athletic shoes and a pair of flip flops. This should be enough variety to get me through my short stay.
  3. Wear your travel clothes coming and going: If you can, wear the same outfit on the way to and from the destination. This eliminates excess clothes that are only worn for a few hours.

What are your travel tips for short trips?

In other news, the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale should be happening in the next few weeks. I’ll be sure to keep y’all posted with the date and more details.

I donned this Lilly Pulitzer Pineapple Dress last weekend for a backyard birthday bash for a friend.
