Weekend fun...

Its Saturday again, and we're off to Chicago for some  weekend fun and some St. Patrick's Day fun too with our dear friends!Hooraayyy!!


This is what I would typically wear on a day trip. It is very important to dress in layers for a short day trip to fight that evening chill on your way back home or to make yourself prepared for an unpredictable weather condition and this hooded sweater serves the purpose so well.
I would prefer cotton over any other fabric for such trips as it is soft and gentle to my skin and lets my skin breathe.
Cargo pants are comfortable and also durable enough to withstand some serious dust and dirt baths! I would keep accessories to the minimum as I don't want to ruin my favorite delicate pieces!
This duffel bag shaped satchel with a shoulder strap is ideal for such occasion as I can use it as a cross-body  whenever needed!The bag is big enough to carry some toiletries, a scarf (also for that unexpected chill), a pair of flats( if you have to walk a lot) and even an extra blouse and some undies (in case you plan to spend the night there!).
For shoes, I prefer comfy boots or booties ( for colder season) or flats. But if you are comfortable in sneakers, just go for it, as sometimes, you are allowed to compromise on style for comfort, doesn't really matter as long as you have FUN! Maybe some bright neon sneakers to add to the FUN quotient!

Here is an illustrated list of what I normally would carry in my bag:

1. A scarf
2. An extra blouse
3. PJs ( in case you plan to spend the night out) and a set of undies ( not shown in picture)

4. A pouch to carry all my toiletries and knick knacks!
5. Clinique face wash (travel size)
6. Clinique moisturiser (travel size)
7. Bath and Body Works hand sanitizer
8. Body Shop body spray
9. Johnson's baby lotion (travel size)
10. Bath and Body Works hand cream
11. Mac kajal
12. Burt's Bees lip balm
13. No7. lip gloss
14. Lancome mini make up kit
15. Contact lens solution and case
16. Medicine
17. Mouth wash
18. Neutrogena Make up removing towelettes

Not to forget a pair of flats in a shoe pouch, cell phone and a tiny point and shoot,  and some snack to nibble on- I'm all set to have loads and loads of weekend fun!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and a very happy St. Patrick's day (You must be thinking why I did not wear green toda! Well, I'm carrying a green bag instead of a complete green outfit, just to stand out in a GREEN crowd!!)
