How to Pack for a Winter Getaway

If we’re being honest, Florida doesn’t have a winter season. For a few days temperatures dip below 60 and that’s pretty much it. So, it’s fair to say we may not be the best at packing for a winter getaway. In just a few days, I’ll be taking a trip to Asheville, North Carolina, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I had to Google what should and shouldn’t make it into my luggage. Here are a few of those staple items I discovered I needed.

Insulated tops and bottoms

Layers, layers, layers! You’ll want to have the ability to accommodate your wardrobe to the time of day or activity you’re doing (without having to go back to the hotel). It’s also important to have a good foundation, so pick out a solid base layer long sleeve shirt and midweight stretch tights.

Wool hiking socks

When your extremities are cold, you will feel it all over your body. Wool socks are great insulators and absorb moisture a lot better than cotton. They are also known to dry faster. Bombas and Smartwool are brands to check out!

Infinity scarf

Stay warm and comfortable with an infinity scarf. These oversized scarves are versatile, come in an array of colors and designs and are the perfect addition to any wardrobe.


Just like socks, gloves are by far one of the most important items that should make it into your suitcase. If your hands are cold, your body will be too. Look for black or light color gloves that will match with much of your wardrobe and pick out a pair that will not only fit comfortably but also have touchscreen capabilities.

While we’re slowly getting closer to spring season, winter temperatures are still impacting much of the country. If you’re looking to sneak away before the last of the snow melts away, make sure to consider shopping for a few of the items listed above. Nordstrom Rack, TJ Maxx and even Amazon carry these items and for great prices too!
