If you’re yet to discover the joy and freedom of a well-stocked bag filled with overnight essentials, you’re missing out on the opportunity to say “yes, just let me grab my bag and I’m there!”
If you want the freedom to be impulsive, think about what you would need if a friend suddenly asked you to go for a road trip to the beach because they are sick and tired of this quarantine stuff! What would you need? From earrings to makeup and from shower gel to your hair dryer, you don’t want to end up in a blind panic shoving unnecessary crap in a bag and running out the door.
Take a moment and think about packing a duffel bag with overnight essentials so you’ll be ready to go when the mood strikes you!
Shoes That Go With Everything
The problem with fashion is that the more style and design you add to a particular item of clothing or footwear, the fewer the things it will match with. That’s why you need something that will go with whatever the weather calls for – from jeans to skirts, you need a nice pair of boots for women. Stick to a neutral color like dark grey or brown. Wherever you end up and whatever you do on your night out, these boots will give you attitude and a lift! Block heels will be easier to wear all night long and more comfortable if you end up doing a lot of dancing, standing or walking around. This is one of those overnight essentials you don’t want to miss!
Jeans And a Nice Top
Listen to two women talking about what to wear to social events and they’ll sound like parrots repeating the phrase “jeans and a nice top”. It’s true. And it’s true because it works. Jeans and a nice top will help you out in a multitude of social wardrobe quandaries which is why it’s an important overnight essential.
Makeup And Accessories
Don’t forget makeup and accessories! Speaking from experience, you don’t need to take your full dresser with you. Do your hair before you leave and take a hair clip or scrunchie for the day after.
You don’t need a ton, but you will need a couple of makeup bag essentials like mascara, foundation, and lip gloss. You’ll also need spare underwear and possibly a pantiliner. Don’t forget your phone charger!
And that’s it! You’ll be home within 24 hours so you need much less than you might be tempted to take with you. You don’t need much more than these overnight essentials to party!
