What to Pack: Weekend Getaway

Happy {ALMOST} Weekend Ladies!

It's that time of year again in The South. You can feel the sun on your skin, the humidity is starting to wreck havoc on your hair day, and every store that you walk into screams "summer is coming" with the aisles adorned with adorable doughnut pool floats and Banana Boat bottles of sunscreen. 

What would be a better way to feed these summer-time temptations than a weekend getaway? Weekend getaways are personally one of my favorite things about the summer because they are short, sweet, and the perfect amount of time to feel relaxed without blowing your bank account! All you need is to grab a suitcase and go!

Shopping for summer clothes is one of the best/worst experiences of the season. It's the best because you know that summertime is close, and who doesn't love a cute new sundress? It's also the worst because trying to make pale legs work in those cute shorts is just...scary. 

Luckily, we saved you the trouble of digging through endless racks of rompers and tee's right here in our What to Pack: Weekend Getaway edition!

First, and foremost on our packing list is always a cute and easy sundress. A sundress is perfect because you can throw it on over a bathing suit for a fun day on the beach or you can wear it with heels for a girls night out!

Our sundress pick is the casual and flirty Ventura Boho Dress!  We love this dress because it has the perfect amount of detailing while still being easy enough to pair with anything! It is simple and pretty with its dainty lace and embroidered detailing. We love the unique colors in the embroidery and think that it is the perfect dress to embrace your inner boho beach babe! Not to mention, it is light, flowy, and free so that you can breathe and you won't feel sticky in the summer heat! We paired this dress with our fun and comfortable Z&L Leather Fringe Sandals! These beauties add the perfect finishing touch. 

Secondly on our packing list is a go to pair of shorts, a fun tank, and a kimono.

These are all total vacation essentials! Our Just USA Daisy Duke Jean Shorts are always an obvious staple because they go with E V E R Y T H I N G. This adorable get-up is perfect for a day of shopping or exploring! Our flirty and casual Roslyn Swing Top in Brick perfectly compliments the detailing in our super boho chic Alexis Embroidered Tassel Kimono! Both this tank and the kimono are so buttery soft! The airy coziness of these two pieces is what really sold me, personally. I am a total advocate for comfy-cute clothes. Feel-good look-good is a rule that I live by. This whole outfit combo is dreamy soft and versatile enough to use over and over again! 

This next look is so fun and bright, it speaks for itself. *Cue heart eye emojis*

Bright Floral Romper Fatlay

We LOVE the bright colors in our Lost in Paradise Romper and the flowers are oh-so beachy! There are just too many reasons to count why I am so in love with this vacay-ready look, but to start off with, here are a few!

1. It's a romper. If that doesn't speak for itself, I don't know what will. It is easy to wear and throw on, and still light and cute to wear for any occasion! Rompers are perfect because they have the chic look of a dress without any worry about how you sit or move around!

2. The print and colors. This bright red color is sure to make any fresh new tan pop! Your newly sun-kissed skin will look perfect in this color scheme! Not to mention these fun and bright flowers that are sure to give off the beach babe vibe. This print and these colors are so unique and are sure to make you stand out in any crowd!

3. Simplicity. Because this romper is so loud and fun, you really don't have to put any thought into your outfit besides which killer shoes you want to pair it with! Simple jewelry is always a perfect way to add a little sparkle and dress it up! So grab this romper, throw it on and have a fun night out!
