Packing for a Girls Weekend Away

What’s better than a weekend away? A weekend away with your girls. I am the queen of over packing. I have been trying to be good, and only pack essentials. Here are my 6 steps for packing for the perfect weekend away!


1.Make up and a hair straightener

IMG_3091Whether its just to get rid of some frizz, or make my hair pin straight, my hair straighter is my best friend. To complete any look, I also need makeup. I packed my everyday basics and some bright coloured lipsticks to make the look ready for a night out.


2.An outfit for dinner


All my friends are super fashionable. We are planning on going out for dinner one night, so I packed a simple black dress to wear with my blanket scarf from H&M. I also packed tights and my quilted boots.


3. A good read


I recently went to Chapters and picked up new books. I love finding new authors and stories to get lost in. A weekend away with the girls is the perfect time to catch up on a good read.


4. An outfit for a hike


We are planning on going on a scenic hike so I wanted to be comfortable, but cute. I packed my runners from Primark, my Lululemon sports bra and leggings, and my Rio Boutique ‘Strong is the New Skinny’ tank.


5. Wine


No girls weekend is complete without some wine. I chose to bring red and white.


6. An outfit to wear home


I wanted to pack light and bring items that can be worn again in a different way. I paired my Old Navy boyfriend white v-neck t-shirt with my Old Navy Black jeans. I added a long grey cardigan to spice up the basics.
