Throwing some stuff into a weekender bag and taking off for a few days is one of my favourite things.

This weekend trip packing list could take you from 2 days through to a week if you wanted. 

Right now with the state of how things are in the world, most people aren’t looking for extended travel.

Oh, we are dreaming about it for sure, but realistically we know that it is too much of a gamble to plan anything that extensive. 

I just saw an influencer that I follow tried to go to Greece the day they were supposed to open the borders to all countries.

She made it as far as the airport only to be told that Greece changed their mind and people from the US can’t travel there at the moment.

Sorry but your trip is cancelled.

That would be so disappointing after being cooped up this long, but honestly, I think it was wishful thinking on her part because that outcome doesn’t surprise me in the least.

And what was my point to that story?

My point is that most people are looking to travel within their country, state, province, and even cities for a few days instead of taking a chance with international travel.

Even going to your cottage seems like a big vacation at the moment. 

The safe bet is the best bet at this time until we actually see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Which means you don’t need a full summer packing list, because you will only be packing for a weekend trip.  

We started phase 2 of reopening in my city today so instead of going down to the pharmacy to drop off my packages to be mailed, I went to the mall post office instead and it was like a mini-vacation. 

Most of the stores were not open in there today, many will be opening through the weekend but it was still a nice change. 

I have the weekender that is in the packing list but mine is grey. I have had it for about 5 years now and I love it and recommend it.

The zippered shoe section at the bottom is awesome and holds much more than shoes, especially for shorter trips.

There weren’t as many colours when I bought it and I kind of really love the oxblood.

The blush is really nice as well. 

I showed two bras in the packing list but realistically we ladies know that you will probably only pack one and wear one for a trip of this duration.

Not many people I know would pack any more than two bras.

Generally, it is one black, and one nude…or you can be like me and just wear a black one regardless of whether or not you can see it through my shirt… 

I do have one of those Wacoal T-shirt bras on my wishlist though because I have heard some great things about them.

Let me know if you have one and if you like it. I’d rather not spend that much unless it is a really good one. 

This packing list is for a summer weekend getaway. All of the visuals in this post are meant as a guideline to aid you in creating your own weekend packing list based on your own clothing, colour preferences, and personal style.

  1. I love the weekend packing lists! I’m always amazed at how many outfits you can create with just a few pieces, Sara. I’ll be picking up a few of these for sure!

  2. i saw on your stories that you bought the Cuyana wrap!! so excited for you, i know you’ve been wanting that for years and i can’t wait to see the outfits you put together with it!

    i love the colors of this packing list. we’re talking/daydreaming about going out of the state in september, but realistic that there’s a good chance that it won’t happen. our state is one with an alarmingly high number of cases recently, so that’s been super fun.

    i wish i had recommendations for a good bra, but i’ve been wearing gap body wireless bras that are at least 5 years old (!). i did try and replace them with ones from aerie, but the sizing was all over the place and they just didn’t fit my body as nicely as gap. i’ve heard more about the natori feathers bra than the wacoal t-shirt bra. i have one from cosabella that’s really comfy, but it’s more like a bralette; not sure if you’re looking for that kind of support/non-support?

    • Ahhh yes! I’m so excited. It’s been a long time coming so you can definitely say that I put a lot of thought into it and it isn’t an impulse buy 😂 the tracking shows it just made it through customs (I had to pay $58 😞 for duties) so I hope it gets delivered by tonight. I love DHL shipping 😂

      Tom went to his mom’s cottage for 4 days which was nice for him (and myself) for him to get away. I’m not a very cottagey person so he went up with some friends before they have to go back to work. Which I hope is sooner rather than later.

      I’ve heard about all those increases cases. It’s so scary. Ours have been consistently decreasing even though I live in the hotbed area in the province. It’s nice to be able to get out a bit more. I’m not going to lie, I did like how ghost town everything was for those few months. I hope we don’t screw ourselves here because there have been some really stupidly large gatherings at beaches and parks.

      I’ll look at the Natori because I think Nordstrom carries them here. I wear a weird size that isn’t usually an option in most brands, so I often have to get a sister size that they offer instead. That means trying them on which I don’t want to do right now 😞 I do have a bralette that I wear under certain shirts but I think for aesthetic reasons I need something more supportive under a fitted t-shirt. They don’t quite hang out where they used to 😂😂😂
