what to pack for a summer weekend getaway


The anticipation of fun summer weekends is exciting! Packing for these trips…not-so-much. Making sure you have everything you need can feel overwhelming…but with these easy tips, you will find packing for your next vacation a whole lot easier.

Pack a few key transitional items, that work well together. Whether you are exploring wineries, dining oceanside or taking leisurely walks by the river, these versatile pieces can be worn from day to night. For daytime casual, wear these outfits with comfortable leather sandals that have tread. For evening activities, dress them up with accessories and booties. The earrings are a nice touch and very versatile.

Packing List

Patagonia Romper

This romper is so comfortable! I bought it in black but I also love the stone blue color. The water repellent finish is perfect in the summer heat when we all can get a little sweaty. Wear it casual with sandals or dress it up with dangling earrings and booties. The waist is draped with an encased drawcord, making it customizable in fit with two front drop-in pockets.

Carve Designs Shorts

I have these fashionable shorts in cinnamon. I love them so much I just ordered the olive color. They look great when you dress them up and the stretchy fabric is super comfy. They run big so order one size down.

Madewell Huston Crops

This wide-leg linen pant is polished enough to wear to work yet the pull-on waistband makes them oh-so cozy. They work well for weekend shopping, wine tasting or just lounging around summer style!

Birds of Paradis – Adele Striped Dress

Effortless and breezy, this midi dress features a sunny, striped pattern and ruffled straps. The 100% linen fabric is gorgeous…so soft and light! It’s the perfect dress for those hot summer nights.

Banana Republic Sandwash Tank Top

This modal-blend jersey is washed to create a lightweight top that has a silky-soft feel. It works well with both the shorts and the wide legged pant. A very versatile tank top for your summer wardrobe.

Chaco Wayfarer Leather Sandals

The leather and midsoles provide all-day comfort and support with tread on the bottom that grip wet and dry surfaces. What I like about these sandals is they have a lot of padding so they are perfect for walking.

Square Bar Stud Earrings with Diamonds by Melissa Joy Manning

These sleek bars of polished 14k gold are accented by tiny white diamonds for a clean, no-fuss aesthetic. Because these are so understated, you can wear them the entire weekend. Whether you are hiking or going out for a nice dinner, they work well in any situation.
