What to put in your travel bag?

Bag-at-You---Fashion-blog---What-to-put-in-your-travel-bag---passport-vogueI love to go away for the weekend. A quick visit to the sun, a romantic citytrip or a family visit is just the perfect getaway to relax and charge your battery. Last month I visited Italy twice and only took this Eastpak Transverz Trolley. Always a challenge of course as you have to make smart choices to make sure that everything fits within this hand luggage bag, which is not something I developed an extraordinary talent for. But I did gain knowledge by doing it and find myself getting better at “light traveling”. I therefore take my changes and share my tips & tricks about what to put in your trolley.

Travel light, live light, spread the light, be the light.” – Yogi Bhajan

First of all, make sure that you have the right equipment. Like I told you in the Travel in Style with Eastpak article, this trolley was very helpful as it appeared that this travel bag fitted so much more than I thought when I got it (and that makes packing so much easier & fun). When I start packing I keep the quote in mind, stay focussed and think smart – yes – this is serious business! I therefore always start by grapping my passport and phone wrapped around in holiday-vibes (get similar icecream case here). Obviously I have to bring my beach items: my bikini (have you seen the fringes on my bottom, get similar here), a statement necklace, the little toiletry bag (which is multifunctional as I also wear it as a clutch when we go for lunch) and a small bottle sunscreen (mind the 100ml restrictions!). When I choose my outfits I always go for my favourite items as I know that these will be the first that I put on when I arrive, like my colourful skirt when we go out for dinner (shown here) and my denim shorts during day time. And last but not least I will take my favourite read: the latest edition of Vogue.

How do you pack your travel bag? And do you have any tips for me to do this even more efficient?

    • Haha, thanks Floortje! Especially the latest edition of the Vogue, right;)?! Xx

  • Great post! I definitely love the tip ‘take what you love’ as I only ever bring things that I know that I will wear 🙂 xx

    • Thanks Lauren for your visit and your kind comment! I used to pack things that I didn’t wear that often but could be qualified as very holiday-style… But that was a mistake as I didn’t like to wear it neither on my holiday! But it takes time and experience to improve, doesn’t it:)? So now, only “things I love” will be in my bag! Xx Susanne

  • Love that phone case!

    I’m a super light packer, especially for the weekend. I just usually stuff everything into my Longchamp bag and call it a day. Smaller bag of toiletries and just 1-2 outfits. The Longchamp bag actually fits a huge amount! I usually put my Macbook Air in it also and that barely takes any space!

    • Haha, that phonecase is one to love as it makes me happy everytime I look at it! I’m a bit jealous on your talent for packing! Maybe my next travel bag should be a Longchamp because it sounds good the way you describe your use of it. Thanks for visiting my blog dear! Xx Susanne
