Packing for a Late Summer Weekend Getaway
As summer comes to a close, many people love to take a quick weekend getaway to hold on to those last warm days before Fall and Winter begin to creep in. We want to make it easy for you with a quick guide on what clothing to bring and how to make sure you have the perfect bling too!
Clothing and Shoes
In order to have the most versatility for your weekend, you need some key pieces. You don't want to overpack so choosing your items wisely will help you to keep your bag as a carry on while ensuring you have enough to choose from for every moment of your getaway. Here are the essentials you simply must have.
Packing for Day
You never know what the daytime will bring by way of adventure so we have a few suggestions to help you get the most out of your wardrobe for most anything your imagination throws your way for activities.
First: Bring TWO different solid color t-shirts. Your favorite two colors in a shirt that fits you nicely will allow you to be comfortable and they take up very little room in your bag. We suggest one be a round collar and one be a v-neck collar for maximum versatility.
Second: Your favorite shorts are a must-have. We suggest you choose a neutral color (one that will match any shirts you pack) as well as a pair with belt loops so that you may add a belt to dress them up or forgo the belt to dress them down.
Alternately you may opt for a pair of capris in lieu of shorts. It's really just a matter of preference. Choosing a pair with belt loops will give you maximum choice in style as you can add a belt to dress them up.
Third: We also suggest, along with your t-shirts, that you drop in a casual shirt as well. The shirt should match your shorts or capris and will give you another entire outfit alternative. Make sure you consider weather where you will be.
Shoes for day are super easy. You should choose one pair of neutral flip flops as well as a pair of neutral sandals. Both should correspond to the colors chosen for your shirts and pants above. Think blacks or browns.
Of course, you can't forget to pack your favorite swimsuit! Whether you prefer a one-piece or a bikini, just choose one that flatters your body. Also, you can always throw a pair of shorts or capris on over your suit for a quick casual lunch on the beach or outdoor restaurant!
Packing for Night
Switching from day to night is EASY with just three additional pieces.
First: Your favorite jeans! Jeans are so versatile and can be dressed up or dressed down easily. Make sure to choose a nicer pair with no holes or rips for maximum versatility.
Second: Your favorite little back dress is KEY! This will be your go-to should you decide to have a fancier night out on the town. Make sure to choose one that is flattering to your body and not too short (we suggest mid-thigh length to knee length to fit the maximum social settings).
Finally, don't forget some black pumps! Due to the season, we suggest your favorite black peep-toes to give you a fun yet dressy look.
NOW THE BLING!
You KNOW we have you covered for affordable bling to go with all of our wardrobe suggestions above. Here are some essential items we think you will love.
Scarves are a super versatile way to add some pizazz to your evening outfit and change your entire look!
