How To Pack Light For Any Type Of Trip (But Still Have Everything You Need)

Nothing sends us into a tizzy quite like packing for a getaway—especially a short one. No matter how calmly and rationally we approach that innocent-looking suitcase, like clockwork, a fun cocktail of anxiety and paranoia washes over us. The same frantic questions run a marathon through our heads: What if it’s cold? What if it’s hot? Do I need to bring those heels? Should I pack a hat?
