Overnight or Day-Trips
These mini- travels can be exhausting, because they’re usually packed with activities. You’ve been up since early morning and you don’t get time to freshen up or retouch up your makeup during the day. I suggest carrying a travel-sized lotion bottle because hydrated skin is happy skin. I usually avoid early-morning makeup when my eyes are tired, and carry an eyeliner and lipstick with me to touch up during say, noon time. I like being comfortable during the journey so I also avoid wearing my jewelry during the travel. I carry it with me in a jewelry pouch. For travel accessories, carry a large handbag that’s washable but also stylish!

Short Trips or Extended-Weekend Trips
It’s always advisable to pack light for these trips so that you can travel without the heaviness and be comfortable. Plus weekend or short-trips tend to involve multiple modes of transportation. That’s why I suggest dark-colored baggage so that you don’t have to worry about it collecting dust during the commute. Also select dark clothes so you can reuse your scarf on the airplane or your jeans for travel and this’ll help you pack light. Don’t forget to carry a cute pair of flats so that you can be comfy yet fashionable!

It’s always a good idea to plan in advance the outfits that you’re going to pack. That’ll include making sure your jewelry goes with your dresses and shoes. Some girls like to match their handbag to their luggage, but it’s better to coordinate your handbag with your outfits. A great idea is to pick a cute suitcase, and then match your travel scarf with it. So that when you get cold in the airport, you still look cute! And also coordinate your passport holder and other travel accessories with your suitcase.
Then pick a handbag in a contrasting color that goes with most of your travel clothes. And match your shoes and sunglasses with it. This will make sure that all your outfits from the airport to the destination and back look well-co-ordinated!
