Packing for a warm weekend getaway

Updated: Feb 12, 2021

Going away for the weekend? Here's a simple way to pack just a few key pieces that you can mix and match together and will take you from pool to dinner.

Our favorite bathing suit brand by far is Malia Mills. Like this white one, her suits are flattering to all types of figures and super sexy without revealing too much. While pricey, the fabric is awesome and they last for years with proper care.

Our favorite dermatologist told us that the shadow from the brim of your hat should cover your chin to protect your face fully from the sun. Sounds like good advice and this hat does the trick while looking modern. The navy/black combination makes it versatile. For $69 it is a steal and will last for ages.

This dress is the ultimate in versatility. Wear it over a bathing suit, out to lunch with a flat sandal, walking around town in a white sneaker or to dinner with a heel or wedge.

A dark chocolate sandal is a basic for summer. This pair has a beautiful timeless, worn-in feel and will get better with each wear. You can wear these with every other item in your suitcase this summer. It's an investment that you won't regret.

This is a great white tank by James Perse. It's special because of the cut - it shows off the shoulders but has a relaxed, A-line silhouette so it's not skin tight - and the fabric is as light and airy as can be. [As of 8.28.19, this tank is no longer available.]

This is a high-waisted pant with a great cut. It goes with anything and comes in several colors. It works best on people with thinner waistlines because it's a little unforgiving in the midsection.

An alternative to a summer sandal is this pair of studded Nikes. Perfect for a day traipsing around the city and they have a lift in the sole that will give you an extra inch or two. Don't be afraid to pair with the dress or pant above.
