Luxetips Travel! Packing for a 4 Day Trip in a Weekend Bag

Hello Divas!

P.U.S.H…Pray Until Something Happens.  It works!

I am not super organized in my general life, but when it comes to packing for a trip, I have it down to a science.  You see when I was a new young attorney living in New York, I traveled a lot and I always checked my bags.  After a certain airline lost my luggage about 3 times, I decided if I could not put all of my things in a carry-on, it had to stay home.

Well for my Essence trip, I packed two outfits per day (my standard rule) and packed enough shoes and accessories that were interchangeable and complimented every outfit.  EVERYTHING fit into my shoulder weekend bag and I was elated.  Take a look at what I packed:

Traveling Outfit Day 1:

This is what I wore on the airplane.  The shirt is from Forever 21.  The white linen pants are from Target.  I have these pants in tan and black.  They are lined and awesome!  The wedges are Guess and I purchased them for only $24.99 from Ross.  The authentic vintage python bag is a gift from my adopted Aunt.  Her style is timeless.  I love that python bag.

Night Out Outfit Day 1:

This is the DVF dress I purchased from The Lucky Exchange for only $35.  I paired it with my Chinese Laundry platforms and silver accessories.  After walking in the wedges all night and dancing in the Superdome, I wore a pair of silver Chinese Laundry flats that were a life saver.  The Chinese Laundry platforms and silver flats are from Ross and were $20 and $12 respectively.

Day Outfit Day 2:

I knew Day 2 would be packed with Ford activities such as test driving vehicles and hanging out at the Ford booth, so I wanted to be casual but really cute.  The striped dress is from my favorite boutique, K-La.  It was only $35.  The earrings were gratis via K-La boutique.  I purchased the dress on my birthday during Mother’s Day weekend.  They were giving away free earrings with purchase.  Score!  I paired this outfit with the python bag and wedges.

Night Outfit Day 2:

I knew I was in for a treat with Kanye performing, so I went for a comfortable but sexy look.  This 100% silk Kimchi Blue dress was only $30 at The Lucky Exchange and it is in mint condition.  It was perfect for a night of concerts.  It is lightweight, comfy and gorgeous! I decided to ditch the platforms that night and simply wear my silver flats.  Good idea considering how much I was jumping around when Kanye performed.

Day Outfit Day 3:

This day I wanted to be a little bit more casual but stylish of course because we were going to a BBQ restaurant.  I purchased the skirt from Target for $20 and it is the cutest skirt ever!  It is has pleats in the fronts and pockets.  The striped shirt is light and loose and I purchased it from Ross for only $8.  I wore my silver flats and chilled that day.  This is now my favorite outfit!

Night Outfit Day 3:

Well on the last night I decided to glam it up a bit and rocked my black romper, black platforms and gold accessories.  I also styled my hair in a Farrah Fawcett feather style and if I must say, I was looking pretty hot! LOL!  However, after watching Kem, Trey Songz, New Edition, and MJB, the platforms had did me in.  But I ALWAYS carry my flats, so I changed into my gold flats and was back in business!

Day 4: Traveling Home!

I always try my best to look comfortable and well put together when traveling by air.  So I wore my gorgeous $7 on clearance, Target print dress and my wedges.  I also carried my white eyelet jacket by Willi Smith.  Planes get cold and it is always nice to have something to throw over your shoulders.  I purchased this jacket from The Lucky Exchange for only $18! Classic.  I paired the outfit with dark brown wood earrings.  They are on the shoes in the pic.

So how did I get all of this in my weekend bag with my makeup case?  Well I balled up the dresses, skirt, and shirt and lined them on either side of the bag. I put all of the shoes in the middle.  I placed my make-up case on top of the shoes and I stuffed my undies and things in the inside pockets of the bag.  Done.

As you can see, you can always travel light and still live the luxe life!
