Weekender Packing: The Ultimate Guide! - Pixie Mood Vegan Leather Bags

If you're anything like us, you love a good weekend getaway. There's something about packing up your bags, hopping on a plane, and spending a few days in a new city that just feels so exciting. But as much as I love traveling, I'll be the first to admit that packing for a trip can be a bit of a challenge—especially if you're trying to pack light.

So today we're sharing our top tips for packing for a weekend trip. First things first: you need a good bag. I'm talking a stylish, vegan leather duffle bag that will make you feel good and look great on your trip. Trust me, it makes all the difference. Once you've got your bag sorted, all you need to do is follow these simple tips and you'll be packing like a pro in no time!

The Bag and Organization

First things first: you need a great bag to hold everything. Our top pick is this super sleek-looking Riley Weekender, which has cute options in full vegan leather or light-weight fabric with vegan leather accents in various color ways. It's stylish and spacious, but not so big that it will be a pain to carry around. Plus, it has a detachable crossbody strap, which comes in handy when you're juggling luggage and trying to make your flight.

The Clothing

Of course, you'll want to pack some cute clothes for your trip. But don't overdo it— a versatile outfit that can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion, is the best packing tip ever. One dress for multiple occasions, rather than packing multiple dresses, will help save some room in your weekender bag.  If you want to avoid wrinkles and save space in your duffle bag, rolling your clothes is the way to go. Just take each item of clothing and roll it up tightly before placing it in your weekender bag. It really is that simple!

The Beauty Essentials & Travel sized bottles

No vacation is complete without a little pampering. Make sure to pack your favorite sunscreen, lip balm, and sunglasses to keep your skin protected from the sun. Let's not forget about makeup! A BB cream with SPF is perfect for days when you want just a little coverage, while still protecting your skin.  And waterproof mascara is essential for those beach days or afternoons spent swimming in the pool.  As for shampoo, conditioner, and other toiletries, there's no need to pack full-sized bottles - just put them in small size travel containers. Not only will this save space in your weekender, but it will also save you from having to check luggage if you're flying. Win-win! 

The Teagan Toiletry Case is the perfect case to keep all of these essentials in one spacious bag which also has a super sleek look, so you can keep the vanity counter looking clean, neat, and aesthetic.

Packing List
I know this might sound like overkill, but trust me—making a packing list is the best way to ensure that you don't forget anything important. Simply write down everything you need to pack before you start packing, then check each item off as you put it in your bag. This way you won't have any surprises when you arrive at your destination. 

Packing for a weekend getaway doesn't have to be difficult—just follow these simple tips and you'll be packed and ready to go in no time! And don't forget the most important step of all: choosing the perfect vegan leather bag, the small organizational pouches, and accessories to take with you on your trip. After all, keeping things organized while looking good and feeling great is half the fun of traveling!  Now that you know what to pack, all that's left to do is book your ticket and have a blast!  Whether you're headed to another city or the mountains, we hope these tips help you enjoy every minute of your trip. Safe travels!
