Weekend Getaway Packing List

I’ll be the first to admit that my packing game was not always strong. In fact, up until very recently, I was definitely guilty of sporadic packing, as a result of which, I’d often bring way more things than I actually needed. Another major downside of my packing strategy was the failure to take into account the where and the what, by which I mean, the place we would be visiting and what it is we were planning to do. So, I’d often forget to bring some of the things I would now consider my absolute weekend getaway must haves.

Well, practice does make perfect I suppose, and after a few disastrous trips, I’ve learned that when it comes to packing smart, versatility is definitely the best way to go! Take our trip to Rancho Valencia for example. I wanted to pack a few things that I could easily dress down for day or up for night. So, I went with a cute off the shoulder top ( also loving this one & this pretty chiffon mint one ), that I could pair with casual paperbag waist shorts for day and skinny jeans and heels for night.

Comfort is very important to me, so a pair of flats is always a must! Reason why I love these Olgana Paris floral-details flats is because the buttery soft suede makes them so comfortable I could literally run around in them all day long, yet the pretty details and embellishment definitely make them special enough to wear at night!

Another absolute must, is a great cover up! What I normally look for is something I can easily throw over a bikini during the day, yet something special enough I could wear to dinner, paired with dressier shoes and a clutch ( good examples here & here ).

Last but certainly not least is jewelry. On of the easiest ways to dress up an outfit, I always make sure to take a few cute bangles, rings and necklaces with me, so I could add a bit of sparkle to my night-time outfits!:)
