Hey guys, heading to London as you read this!

Thought it could be fun to share here a list of my essentials when packing for a short trip. I'm a pretty light packer (I think), even though I sort of wish I could take all of my shawls with me!

- a good book
- an iPhone with a good playlist and lots of podcast episodes (plus it's a great camera)
- lipstick + hand lotion
- an umbrella (ok not an essential but I'm going to London so sort of!)
- a small knitting project
- paper tissues
- lots of socks and underwear
- bandaids (for the inevitable moment where your feet will hurt…)
- international plug
- lots of warm layers; pictured here: a shawl, a sweater, and socks
- sunglasses (for when you don't need the warm layers)
- snacks and water. blueberries anyone?
- Birkenstocks <3

So, what's on your list for short trips?


  1. *takes notes* I'm leaving for a rather long trip this Sunday and haven't even begun packing yet! Very inspired by your level of being organised :)

  2. Lovely post! I am so into traveling so I really love it when bloggers post travel-related things. The international plug is definitely an essential when traveling to different countries!

  3. Always a small knitting project!
