My 6 year wedding anniversary is creeping up and to celebrate the hubo and I are spending a weekend away (child-free) to celebrate. Oh and did I mention we’re going to the Brown Brothers Winery!!! My favourite wine brand of all time, the man knows how to please his woman. We are driving to our destination, we will be there Friday, Saturday and coming home Sunday. Where the winery is is in kind of a country town, so it will be a bit laid back and I won’t need to be too dramatic with what I wear. So I thought I would share what I’m packing for this weekend away just so if anyone is going away with their significant other some ideas on what to pack.
Since its only a weekend away I don’t need to pack a large ass case, I had to write that I know an awful lot of females who pack as if they are going for months.Im packing my small carry on suitcase. This was a case I bought when I used to work as a manager for a luggage company, its such a pretty case with the black jacquard designs on it and the inner lining is pink strips. So Pretty. Its so superficial but Im pretty bummed the badge on the front of the case is bent – I had to check it in when I was on holidays years ago and we all know how luggage tends to get a bit bashed around. But the case still works so it could have been worse. Since its only roughly a two hour drive Im just going to wear what I plan to wear the first day.
(I’m not strutting naked around the winery…….although that be a great story if i did)
I planned my outfits with layering. This way with the unpredictable weather I can be comfortable. I stuck with simple high waisted black jeans, with these I can dress them up or I can casual them down. I also packed a pair of leggings just for when I want to kick around the hotel room and be comfortable. 3 t-shirts were packed, t-shirts I find can be dressed up or down and they are comfortable. At least with the t-shirts I can wear a jacket and if the weather warms up I can simply take off the jacket and be comfortable. Finally I packed a loose fitting strappy top, this is another simple top that I can dress up with jeans . Obviously I wanted to be comfortable on this trip with the MR, but still look nice. I also packed my PJs of course, but forgot to include them in the photo.
Because of the lovely state I live in, the weather changes throughout the day and some days you can go through all of the seasons. So it’s always good to take a jacket and dress in layers. I’m taking a cardigan. This cardigan is neat and not too heavy so I can wear it and look nice and if I get a bit warm I can take it off and not have to carry around a large jacket just sling it over my arm.
I don’t need to bring my everyday bag which is fairly big. So Im taking this small MIMCO pouch, its a nice size and can fit all my essentials I need. You’d know ID (even though I don’t get asked for it anymore I still take it), money, lip balm/lipstick, small perfume and small deodorant. I like this pouch because it just hangs off my wrist so I never loose it and it not getting in my way at all.
Well of course!!! Its a weekend away celebrating my wedding anniversary. As if I’m not going to bring out all the guns in order to guarantee sex. Plus rocking sexy underwear for the husband is my way of showing him yeah I still bring the sexy for you after these years of marriage….I did pack my comfortable sexy stuff of course! Yes comfortable and sexy underwear are possible.
TWO PAIRS OF SHOES
THATS RIGHT! 2 pairs. Dress up and casual shoes. I love to wear wedges they are dressy but easy to walk in, I would have worn nice flats but for this trip this bitch wanted some height. White converses are a nice simple shoe that looks neat with your outfit. I obviously packed socks to wear with these.
This is just only half of what Im packing for this trip…Yes I know its a lot, but I need to make sure I bring my A game with my hair and makeup. I also obviously packed deodorant, perfume, brush and hair straightener among other things. One of the things I like to have on trips is travel sized toiletries because it frees up room in my toiletry bag. Obviously not everything comes in travel size, but if I could manage to get the travel sized item why not. I used to get the small bottles and fill them up myself but I just couldn’t be bothered filling them up and potentially spilling product in the process.
So this is what I packed for my weekend away with the hub for our anniversary, stay tuned for my tales of our weekend. Hope you got some ideas for any small trips you are taking in the future.
