This past weekend, I flew down to South Florida to spend some time with my man. I booked this trip when I saw him back in February – we try to see each other every 4-6 weeks, but we decided to skip March due to spring breakers and spring break flight prices.
For this flight, I booked a bare minimum round trip on Spirit – which means I was bringing myself, a personal item, and nothing more. I arrived Thursday night and left Sunday night, so I had a good three days there. Thankfully it’s been extremely warm there and my boyfriend planned our entire weekend which made packing a whole lot easier.
When I book a weekend bare minimum flight, I typically use a large tote/purse with a packing cube and my makeup case, along with a few random items. The last couple times I’ve used my Longchamp Pliage and my smallest packing cube.
I learned about packing cubes after watching one of my favorite fashion vlogger’s (Elle be or Lisa) YouTube videos. Packing cubes have made organization so much easier! I use them all the time now, whether I’m packing my tote or suitcase. It allows you to put outfits together or keep certain items together. I especially love using them when I pack for short trips because they keep my clothes together instead of a shirt floating around my bag with the possibility of popping out if I open it.
I found my set of three packing cubes by Sharper Image at Marshall’s for about $15, but you can easily find them on Amazon.
Since I bought a few new items for this trip, I thought I’d share with you what I brought along for my three days in paradise. I’ve also included links so you can add some of the pieces to your closet.
Friday – Pool day & Miami
Saturday – Horse Track
Despite the trip being short, it was a really great time and I’m always thankful to spend time with my boyfriend.
