So often, you live just a quick train ride from a big city, but you don't make the time to visit! But there's a new exhibit at the big museum that you REALLY want to see, and a new restaurant... So let's cash in a few of those hotel loyalty points, and go downtown for a quick weekend away.
But what to take? How about starting with your favorite shawl, from the Metropolitan Museum of Art? It's a perfect reflection of your preferred color palette of autumn colors, and you know you will want it with you - at least on the train, for drafts, and in the restaurant, too...

For the trip, break out the saffron cardigan! There's never a bad time to wear it. And a touch of teal on your toes...
Even though you're only going to be away from home a couple of days, it's always a good idea to take enough changes of shoes to keep your feet refreshed. Low heels and flat soles don't take up much space at all in your backpack.
When you lay everything out on your bed (just to check that you have what you need), you see that you're going to be very well equipped for whatever the city throws at you.
So this is your weekend:
What exhibit are you going to see? Doris Salcedo at the Contemporary? or the Irish, at the Art Institute? or another, in another city?
