What To Pack For An Overnight Trip


I am often asked how I only take a carry-on so I’m showing you what to pack for an overnight trip. For instance, when I have overnight trip I only take a very small Travelon carry-on bag. I’ve had that bag for about 10 years and I love it! Of course I used my packing cubes which always makes everything easier!

In my bag I usually pack the following:

  1. sleepwear
  2. undies
  3. showercap
  4. One of my handmade bonnets 
  5. House slippers
  6. shirt
  7. toiletries
  8. Silver shoes
One of my go-to overnight outfits. This shirt is light enough to not add much weight to a carry-on bag and can be layered easily for colder weather. It makes packing for an overnight trip simple! 

That’s it. There was no need to pack anything else because that is everything needed for an overnight trip. A sweater and scarf can be worn in case it gets chilly, and an extra shirt can be packed to wear the next day. There is nothing wrong with re-wearing jeans and your accessories can match everything you pack.  I love the silver flats because they are comfortable and they can dress up jeans without trying too hard.

I like to be stylish and cute when I travel but I don’t like to spend lots of money doing it, I prefer to spend my money on the things that are important to me while I’m in destination.

Do you pack more when you travel for a couple of days?
