In May, my husband and I went on a little weekend getaway to the Yaeyama Islands for our anniversary and we were so excited about exploring the remotest part of Japan. Read more about our trip. It was our first of many weekend getaways and i thought it would be fun to share what i packed. I’m usually an overpacker but i’m proud to say i did good on this trip, using only a backpack and planning in advance really helped. For the clothing I decided to stay within a certain color palette (whites and blues), so it would be easy to mix and match items. I added some colorful swimwear and a fun block print coverup from India. A girl always needs pops of color! Am i right?!
Here’s what to packed for your next getaway:
ziplock bag (not pictured)
3 oz bottles (perfect for my No-Poo!)
toothbrush and toothpaste (travel size)
pill case with essentials
deodorant (travel size)
roll of toilet paper
small first aid kit
hair ties (not pictured)
bug spray (not pictured)
2 bathing suits
1 beach cover up
1 pair of converse sneakers
1 pair of sandals
4 pairs of underwear
