Just in time for the weekend we’ve collected some exciting packing inspiration for your next getaway. Be it exploring ghost towns in the deserts of Arizona, a whirlwind, gluttonous tour of all the newest food trucks in your area or weekend at sea in Caribbean, the weekend opens up a wealth of possibility for spontaneous trips near or far.
Jamie Bartlett, Blogger and Graphic Designer at A Pair of Pears
For an exploratory weekend road trip up and down the west coast, Jamie packed her Erika Ray-Ban sunglasses, Moleskine sketchbook, Charles pencil case, her grandfather’s vintage Leica camera, hair and beauty accessories, iPhone, earphones, Cord Taco, and H&M hoodie.
Taylor Hoff, photographer and visual merchandizer at Apple Inc.
For a quick trip to Palo Alto, Taylor packed just the essentials: his handmade board, several pairs of Vans, wardrobe basics, some good reads and his iPad. True inspiration for traveling light.
Mike Macadaan, founder and creative director of This is Ground
Like a boy scout, preparedness is Mike’s strong suit in packing:
I like the idea of being the guy that has a vintage view master or a boomerang just in case. It’s never really the case but with this much random, boredom is never an issue. If you have the space, I recommend using it both wisely and foolishly.
His weekend gear for a boat trip down in San Diego included a Norse Projects cap, Paper Chase Press notebooks, vintage Viewmaster, vintage and AXS Folk Technology shorts, HUF boxers, Stumptown cold brew growler, Vans sneakers, a new TIG prototype for field testing, hair and body essentials from Aesop, Baxter of California and Go 24/7, Ollo clip, Joby GorillaPod, headphones, and of course lots of This is Ground gear.
Christine Amorose, blogger at C’est Christine
For a brief weekend getaway to Interlaken Inn with her boyfriend, Christine packed her blue and gold favorites: Nice Laundry socks, Marc Jacobs aviators, sunglasses sleeve, Kate Spade wallet, Everlane top and some beauty products tucked into her gold Tomo pouch.
Christopher Dugas, freelance photographer and mixologist at The Grove in St. Louis
On his weekend off from hustling as a freelance photog, Christopher can be found exploring his city with a compass, Macbook Pro, Polaroid Land camera, Field Notes and a good read, his iPhone in a RECOVER wood case, Cordito and Top Shelf Flask in tow.
