What to Pack for a Weekend Away

With summer in full swing, there’s nothing I look forward to more than taking a weekend trip to the shore. A two-day getaway is the perfect way to recoup and recharge after a hectic workweek! If you’re planning your own seaside escape, kick travel stress to the curb with a well-packed travel tote.

Here’s a tip: Pack outfits that share the same color story. That will allow you to achieve a variety of looks by simply mixing and matching pieces and accessories. You can also get away with bringing just one pair of shoes if you stick to a practical shoe, like low wedges, which will let you go from exploring tidal pools to a boardwalk date in no time flat!

SHORTS – Prep for Anything Shorts
CARDIGAN – Charter School Cardigan in Rust
DRESS – Be My Navy Dress
SCARF – Crinkle in Time Scarf in Indigo
BAG – Weekend by the Water Bag
SUNGLASSES – Wild Hue Yonder Sunglasses
SHOES – Strappy Together Wedge
CAMERA – Diana Mini Gold Edition
NECKLACE – In the Distance Necklace

    Really cute, y’all — I wish there was an “Add ALL of this to my cart” button!
