Minimalist Winter Travel: Packing Light For Holidays & Weekends In Cold Weather | Minimalist Packing

Rates : 0

Hi there! Today, I wanted to share with you what I brought with me for a long weekend in Philly. Since becoming a minimalist, I have learned to pack lighter than ever; although, I am from New York, and I know first hand just how cold and snowy winter can get!

Before our trip, we saw that there was potential for a snowstorm on the way back home, so I packed accordingly— but in a minimal way, of course. 🙂

Now that the holidays are here, I was thinking minimal travel may be something many of you are tackling as well; so I hope this video can help you figure out how to pack lighter. Thanks so much for watching and supporting me on my minimalist journey!

Featured Clothing:

Eddie Bauer Products:

Parka (Not exactly mine but very close):
I wear a size medium in the parka. I’d say the parka runs small.

I wear a size small in the vest. It’s true to size.

Patagonia Leggings:
Women’s centered tights –
These fit true to size for me. I got a small.

American Giant Products:
Pullover: Mine is the Women’s Essential Pullover, but they aren’t listed in their products anymore!!? Here are two that I think would work out-
I wear a small in the pullover.

White V-Neck T:
I have smalls, but they are very relaxed fitting. I will reorder XS when I need more.

Levi’s Women’s Mile High Super Skinny Jeans
I wear a size 28 regular. I LOVE these jeans, but I do not recommend them for long hours sitting in the office. They dig into my belly button a little, so I wear them out and about rather than all day at work. Not impossible to wear to work, but not my favorite.

Adidas: Adidas Neo Cloudfoam Shoes
I wear a 7.5, and these are SO comfortable. I thrifted mine in a like new condition, but didn’t experience breaking them in fully on my own.

Orinoco Spice –
I run from a size 7-7.5, and I’m a 7.5 in these boots. They fit well, but if you want to wear really thick socks, I’d size up at least a half size.

Jean Jacket:
Lucky Brand – I got this at TJ Maxx a long time ago, so I don’t know the model number. I am a size small though.

If there is something missing you want more info on, just let me know in the comments and I will do my best to add it!
