What To Pack For A Babymoon In Seattle

My husband and I just got back from a little vacation to squeeze in some last minute “us” time before our little one arrives. We wanted to stay close to home, so we headed up to Seattle for our little getaway. I was kind of intimidated about what to pack, since I have a hard enough time dressing myself at home without being limited by what little I had in a suitcase. After checking the forecast, I made a list of what was important to me, and that was comfort, layers to stay warm (but also to shed when I inevitably got a hot flash), and mixing and matching as best I could so our luggage was manageable. Click through to see what I decided to pack for a babymoon in Seattle:

  • Blouses and sweaters 2 of 7

    Picking a bunch of basics and mix+match tops allowed me to pack less but still layer well. A few basic t-shirts, a chambray button-up, a fun sweater, and something on the dressier side for the night you want to go out for a fancy dinner.

  • Bottoms 3 of 7

    Leggings: I knew I would end up wearing leggings almost every day, so I packed a couple pairs.

     

    Skinny jeans: For when I just wanted to wear a t-shirt.

     

    Black maxi skirt: Because it's pretty much like wearing a nightgown, and comfort is the highest priority at almost 9 months pregnant.

  • Staying warm 4 of 7

    Since the forecast called for all overcast days while we were there (how typical of you, Seattle!) packing a couple oversized cardigans and my heavier parka was a must. All three of these items were neutral enough to pair perfectly with any of the tops I brought. 

  • Accessorize 5 of 7

    I brought along just a few basic accessories for the trip:

    -My leather satchel to carry my necessities (wallet, camera, lipstick, phone, etc.) as we walked all over the city

    -A headscarf to keep windblown hair as tame as possible

    -A jersey infinity scarf for extra warmth

    -One basic necklace that goes with anything

  • Comfortable shoes 6 of 7

    Since we were staying in downtown Seattle, I knew we would be doing plenty of walking, so I brought along my favorite pairs of comfortable shoes. A pair of flats, a pair of lace-up ankle boots (which were the best choice), and a heeled bootie for the days we didn't as much walking.

  • Comfy loungewear 7 of 7

    And, of course, you'll want something that you can wind down in at the end of a long day. I changed into sweatpants and a sweatshirt within 30 seconds of getting back to the hotel each night, and it was perfect!
