Spring Time Weather Packing List for a Carry-On

It’s finally March and you can feel an end to this long winter. The thing I like about March is that you notice the temperatures getting slightly warmer each day. Even if it is only one degree warmer it is like a countdown to spring. The past couple of days have shown us warmer temps and have been sunny which was uplifting, but now we have a freezing rain + extreme cold warning once again. Since the saying goes “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb” you know that you can never trust this month. It’s sneaky enough to give you beautiful weather one day and a snowstorm the next. It’s making us a little stir crazy to be honest. Whenever we go out it seems we are rushing to get to the destination because the snow drifts and wind chills suck out any joy you may get while walking there.

I am looking forward to the snow melting so we can buy the girls some new bikes and take them around the neighbourhood. Merle has decided she wants a Frozen bike *eye roll*. Honestly, I am getting sick of Frozen. I just want to get her a nice solid colour bike maybe in yellow which is her favourite colour. Then get her a frozen basket to put on the front since she will want to bring her favourite stuffy with her like always. I hope that she forgets her request by bike buying time. We live in a city center so we have a lot of buildings and concrete snot not a lot of play area. But there are a lot more green areas (albeit somewhat hidden) than our last place we lived. So I am getting excited to explore our new area.

My favourite temperature is around the mid to high teens, like the temperatures you get in spring and early fall. I made a packing list for destinations with these temperature ranges since it the most comfortable for me for travel. I actually really dislike extreme heat and humidity. This list offers lots of mix and match and layering options. A rain boot is always a must for me and I love the Hunter Packable Boots because they roll down making them compact so you can pack them easily. Being able to wear just a sweater or light jacket over a t-shirt and be warm enough is the perfect weather for me and this packing list reflects that. Every piece in this list is under $100 except the watch and the rain boots, and most items are under $50. Listed below the picture are the links of where to find all of the items and their prices.
