Now that we’re getting in the holiday spirit, it’s time to plan what you’re bringing to the fam for the holidays. Or maybe you’re celebrating the end of the year by doing a little staycation. For these types of trips you want to create a staycation light packing list that will maximize your options. Especially if you’re staying for more than 2 days you want to have enough options to celebrate but also to explore — relive old memories in your hometown or go to a local market — and relax. 

That’s where this staycation light packing list comes in to help you prepare for an already busy season.

FESTIVE HOLIDAY OUTFIT

For this packing list I added two holiday looks in case you’re going to be away for both Christmas days or if you’re going to be away for New Years eve. Since lots of us are probably going to spend their Christmas with the fam, you’re probably not going to show up in a glitter dress. But for New Years Eve you might want to go all out. I always loved to buy a new dress for NYE but you could always opted for your favorite little black dress. 

If you’re going to go away for more days, you will want to put a festive holiday outfit on your staycation light packing list that you can mix and match with your other clothes. You can easily match the suede skirt with a cashmere sweater and boots.

COZY OUTFIT

If you’re going to be with the family you might opted for a cozy outfit. I LOVE my cashmere joggers from H&M. They’re the softest but still look chic. Definitely an item you want to add to your staycation packing list. Even more points if you bring a matching sweater and fluffy slippers. A cozy Christmas at home.

THE TRAVEL OUTFIT

The outfit you’re traveling in should always be comfortable. If you need to fly to your destination than you might want to switch out your jeans for leggings. But since it’s a staycation light packing list, you’re probably traveling by foot, car or train, so jeans will be perfect. It can also be your exploring outfit if you want to escape the holiday commotion for a walk outside. Or to visit festivities in town or city.
