I’ve just returned from a five day trip to Boston, Massachusetts where I attended Women in Travel Summit, a place to bring together women in the travel industry. Spring is on the calendar in California, but it certainly has not arrived in Boston yet. Most of the days were a mix of rain or snow, and the one day that had a little bit of sunshine it was near freezing most of the day. This list is almost identical to what I packed for my trip, but I did bring a pair of my trusty black jeans. I only wore them once, so I didn’t include them on this list. If you’d like, I’d suggest tights or leggings under the dress for an extra layer of warmth.

The hardest part for me about the trip was adjusting to the drastic change in temperature when you walk indoors. It took some time to get used to removing three layers of clothing every time I walked into a building. It also was not one of my smoothest trips. On the morning of day four, I had an accident with my breakfast which led to me having to wear a shirt I’d worn before. Since I wore a blazer or scarf most of the time no one noticed, and it made for a funny story later on. Hopefully this will help you with what to pack for a week Boston in the Spring, definitely not as warm as California.
Have you been to Boston or the New England area in the Spring? What did you pack?
