Our rule of thumb for weekend trips is an outfit for each day, and one extra outfit. Plus, one evening outfit if we plan to go out. This includes what we travel in.
We often travel in the shoulder seasons where weather is changeable and sometimes rainy. We mitigate these issues with our extra outfit. Ideally, we look for outfits that can be layered, and mixed and matched together.
Shoes add a lot of bulk and weight. If we are driving, then we don’t stress about it. However, it does become a consideration when flying. Look for shoes that are versatile and comfortable.
