A Weekend Travel Capsule For Kent

What's In My Weekend Travel Bag

After a simplified Christmas, our seasonal celebrations spilled over into the New Year with a cold-weather trip 200 miles to Kent for a long weekend on the coast with my parents.

When going away for a weekend I like to cram pack carefully and travel light; I squeeze only the very essentials into a single backpack. Aside from the nine items listed below, I packed a small beauty bag with a minimal collection of make-up; since giving up wearing foundation I can travel even lighter. I also threw in the obvious: a couple pairs of tights, lingerie, and, of course, electronics including my Kobo Aura H2O.

It was a relaxed trip so I could keep my wardrobe compact and fuss-free; where we stayed is right on the coast, it's blustery, often rainy, and cold. I wanted a capsule wardrobe that would cover all bases with enough for layers to be piled on when we go outdoors and peeled off when in the warm.
