What to Pack for a Trip in the Winter

What to Pack for a Trip in the Winter

Taking a trip in the winter to a place that is cold seems like a nightmare in the packing department. How can you pack all your winter clothes into a suitcase? After traveling a few times this winter to places that were cold, I have figured something out that is amazing: your coat covers your clothes. This is amazing because you don’t have to stress out about putting together the perfect outfit. Of course when you go out to eat or get a coffee, you will take your coat off but still 😉

Here is a list of things I have found useful on a winter trip!

Sweaters

Usually one to two is enough, especially if they are a solid color. You can layer them to keep warm while sightseeing the town! I have a sweater dress that is a solid color and so comfortable! It is the perfect winter travel dress.

Solid Shirts

Perfect for layering under your sweater and also good to rewear and no one will know you are 😉 Packing one to two is the perfect amount to save space.

Scarfs

Also another staple to keep warm, but also the mix up your outfits! I usually bring just one.

Pants

I will usually bring one pair that are black or a dark blue.

Shoes

Wear your heaviest pair! Make sure they are water proof and warm. In winter you don’t really need to bring a variety of shoes, but I like to bring tennis shoes in case my feet get tired. Not the best for the cold, but for comfort.

Socks

Bring wool socks if you have them! Walking around a lot outside can make your feet cold! I also like to bring pantyhose that is fleece lined for my sweater dress so I am really warm.

Hat and Gloves

Make sure to bring a hat and gloves to keep you warm. Bring an extra pair of gloves just in case!

 

 

I hope my list will help you pack for your next trip!

I think packing for a winter trip is easier than summer! Do you?

Packing for One Week in Ireland

Cliffs of Moher Ireland

In my last post I wrote about my amazing week driving through Ireland. When I was packing for my trip I honestly had no idea of what to bring. Will it be really cold? Will it rain a lot? These questions left me lost on what items I should pack. Since I am back from my trip I will share with you what I packed for one week in Ireland in March!

My Packing List for One Week in Ireland:

  • Rain boots: Since these were my biggest item I wore them on the plane. It wasn’t the most comfortable, but it saved a lot of room in my bag. With Ireland’s unpredicatable weather you never know if it will rain or not. We were lucky and it did not rain during our trip, but the year after my friend took the same trip and it rained the entire time. Better safe than sorry in my opinion.
  • Black wedge booties: I bought mine from Target and they are so comfortable! I wore these out at night and they were perfect when walking on the old cobble streets.
  • Tennis shoes: These will come in handy when your feet are hurting from walking so much!
  • Black flats
  • Pants(2): I brought a pair of regular skinny jeans and also a pair of black pants.
  • Leggings(2)
  • Sweatshirt
  • Blouses(3)
  • Sweater
  • Black long sleeved dress (pictured below)
  • T-shirts(2)
  • Light Jacket: I got mine from J.Crew, it is no longer available but is pictured below
  • Raincoat
  • Vest: I also got mine from J.Crew, but they are no longer available
  • Neutral shirts
  • Black Scarf
  • Crossbody purse

Other Important Things to Pack:

  • Converter for your electronics
  • Feminine products (just in case)
  • Glasses/contacts
  • Makeup
  • Socks
  • Underwear
  • Sports bra
  • Bras
