Weekend Getaway in a Bag

Summer is quickly approaching, and you know what that means…weekend getaways! You don’t want to be that “girl” who brings multiple bags just for her weekend trip, but fitting everything you’ll need for a weekend in your carry-on isn’t as easy as it looks. Whether you’re headed to the beach, to the lake, or to your favorite city, here are some ways you can mix and match a few pieces together to make great outfits for the whole weekend.

First, you need a great bag.  I absolutely love this leather duffel from Brahmin. It’s the perfect size for a carry-on bag, and has enough room to fill it with everything you need.

White linen pants are a summer staple. I love these from Tommy Bahama because they’re effortless and cool. When you’re by the pool, pair them with your swimsuit, like this Trina Turk suit from Belk and a fedora (Tommy Bahama), or pair it with a tank like this one from Apricot Lane and heels for an easy nighttime look.

Your toppers can multi-task, too.  A caftan, like this one from Apricot Lane, is a summertime must-have. It’s similar to a cardigan, but is sheer and flowy.  It makes a great swimsuit cover up, or you can wear it over a maxi dress for those chilly evenings. I love this simple black cotton Eileen Fisher dress from Belk.

Denim shorts are always a necessity. The great thing about denim is you can wear it with everything, and these Lucky Brand shorts from Belk are perfect. Pair it with the caftan and tank for a simple daytime look.  Amp up a simple outfit like denim shorts and a tank for an effortless look.

Packing light doesn’t mean you can’t accessorize! Pack a few accessories like necklaces, a scarf, and your favorite pair of sunglasses. By changing your accessories, you can easily take an outfit from casual to dressy. The same goes for shoes. Pack a flat pair of sandals for a casual look, and a pair of heels for evenings. Coach makes great shoes like these summery tan booties that are comfortable and stylish.
