When winter was here you talked dreamily of your summer vacation plans – unfortunately, the season is half over and those plans got pushed back. You may feel like you’re running out of time but you haven’t – not yet! Now’s your chance to steal away for a weekend getaway.
Before you take off, make sure you double check your travel checklist. After all, nothing ruins a trip like leaving something important behind. Here’s what you need for the perfect weekend getaway.
1) a darling dress
Dresses are perfect for a quick trip. They’re an entire outfit in and of themselves. It’s super easy to dress up or down for anything you have planned. Since you are on vacation, try something fun and seasonally appropriate like this embroidered, off-the-shoulder dress.
2) a pair of plain pants
It’s always a good idea to bring separates that you can easily mix and match. A pair of casual pants are a good start to any outfit. These relaxed boyfriend capris will be more comfortable than sweatpants (and cuter, too!).
3) a simple shirt
When it comes to packing separates, you want to avoid brightly colored statement tops and stick to items that you can easily wear with different pieces. This off-the-shoulder, striped ombré top is perfect. The neutral colors make it easy to wear with anything. The tassels lining the bottom add a little bit of extra fun.
You can also go for a stylish hi-lo white top. It’s a classic, flattering look that will pair well with any outfit and any occasion.
3) all about accessories
Of course, no outfit is complete without a good pair of shoes. A pair of strappy sandals feel both summery and comfortable, whether you’re lounging around or walking all over.
Since you’re on vacation, skip doing your hair for the day. Throw on a self-explanatory cute baseball hat to hide your hair and keep the sun off your face.
Regardless of what your getaway involves, a bright, beachy tote will get you into a vacation state of mind. Its colorful pattern adds some pizzazz to any look.
If you want to dress things up, no problem. Add some sparkle to your outfit with a glittery pendant necklace.
4) a casual cover-up
Got the beach on the brain? No problem. This sheer, pom-pom trimmed cover-up is perfect for you. It’s easy to slip off while you slip in to the pool.
5) athletic activewear
Rather spend your getaway hiking and seeing the sights? Stay cool and cute in a vibrant pink activewear tee. It’ll keep you comfortable all weekend long.
Everything’s packed and you’re ready to go. Now get ready to relax and look good doing it!
