The Stylish Weekend Getaway
Well, I did it. I got a spray tan. Per the pact, I had to, you know! And it was just in time! You see, a friend of mine, with brilliant foresight, bought a fabulous vacation deal from Gilt Groupe. It was the dead of winter when she booked a luxurious little vacation for a great price (I love a great price) and it’s time to cash it in. And, thanks to some, I don’t know, hmm… slight begging and pleading, she offered to take me with her! Hooray!
Basically we will be doing a lot of lounging by the pool looking skinny, exploring the pages of the New York Times best seller list, and dining alfresco. I love dining alfresco. I love how chic I look, in sweet espadrilles, this season’s printed pant, chic oversized top, fun glamour glasses, and the Chanel bag I wish I owned, nibbling on sweet potato fries and sipping iced tea, the warm breeze gently rumpling my hair. See what I mean? I look great, right?
Oh how I love it!
Anyway, all those items, (minus the Chanel bag I do not actually own) will be going in my bag this weekend.
I told She She Me about my lucky vacation, or maybe bragged a little and possibly ungraciously taunted her, and let’s just say she was a bit less than ecstatic that I had this fabulous vacation opportunity. To pacify her, we decided that I would come up with a fabulous list of must haves for a quick weekend get-a-way. You never know when the opportunity will present itself, and we must be prepared!
I used to open an empty bag and put things in until it filled up. That’s not the way I work any longer. Now I put everything I want to take on my bed and mix and match until I’ve got a few great outfits that will fit in my beautiful weekend bag.
Let’s start with the far-fetched item, shall we?
Workout Gear: While you and I both know that I probably won’t turn over a high intensity workout leaf any time soon, I am known to enjoy a little low impact yoga every now and again. In that case, maybe I should bring a pair of fabulous yoga pants and top. In any case, I seriously love the casual chic “I may or may not have just worked out” look, and will pack accordingly.
Let’s be honest, one of the main reasons I begged and pleaded er—I mean, graciously accepted when my friend so selflessly offered—was to lounge poolside.
Swimsuit: Of course you already have a swimsuit. Throw two of your favorite trends into your bag, and you are good to go!
Cover Ups: You’ll need a little something to wear to and from the pool, and I suggest a maxi dress. They are so stylish right now, and feel wonderful against your skin after a day in the sun. If you are a bit more of a traditionalist, a sarong will be right up your alley. This one is gorgeous and so on trend! Grab a chic-yet-shady sunhat and stroll to a great lounge chair for a little R&R.
Shorts and Pants: I just adore a rolled up pant, and it’s all the rage right now. You may already have something in your closet that you can easily roll, or try this awesome pair. They are a great base for our accessorizing pleasure! Can you say gladiators, cropped sweater over a sparkly tank top, and bracelets? Don’t forget to pack casual shorts, and don’t be afraid of the cuffs.
Tops: Two words: layered tanks. One tank is fine, but two tanks add texture and visual interest. Bring at least two tanks on your trip, and you’ll find they go with almost every outfit. Bring along a T that has been inspired by the sea. Any nautical stripe is great. You should also pack another blouse in a hot color and interesting silhouette. Of course, cardigans are a must. This one is great because it is fitted, has great color, and is short sleeved. Make sure you have a cardigan that will suit the evening chill, or bring along a comfy-chic jacket for your evening strolls. All these items can be mixed and matched for many looks. Add accessories, and it will get even better!
Accessories: Throw a bunch of bracelets into your bag. They instantly pull a look together, and have a fresh summer feel. I love these for their multiple colors and easy stackability. When I travel, I often throw in a belt because a belt can change your outfit in a cinch. A gorgeous bag is an absolute must. Get one in this season’s favorite color! Carry it on your shoulder, or use the optional cross body strap.
Sandals: While I love the look of a gladiator, if you are by the pool, you’ll need something easy to slip on and off.
Last but not least, it’s always wise to pack a dress. They are easy to wear, are nice and breezy, and look fabulous. This one is perfect! It can be dressed up or down depending on your vacation activity. For the tailored fashionista, buy this dress and you’ll look chic while you shop.
Happy Shopping, and Happy Vacationing!
