These are just a few staples that I pretty much always include for a girls weekend away, or any weekend away really. What are your go to items when packing?

  • I walked all over NYC in these rose gold sneakers recently. Bonus for not looking like a total tourist in mom shoes.
  • I can’t get enough white shirts. I love a plain white tee, or a nicer lace look. I have a closet full of white tops. #confessions I love to pack them because they go with every thing in your suitcase.
  • This dress has been my favorite purchase of the summer. I have worn it with the rose gold sneakers and with heels. Add a little jewelry and it’s a whole new look. Plus it is SOOOO comfy. Versatile looks like this really help keep you from over packing.
  • This small wallet fits perfectly in a cross body bag and holds all you need for a day out sightseeing. I.D., credit card, and a little cash. I bought this just for travel and to use in cross body bags but I have used it so much more! It’s so nice not to be carrying around a huge wallet full of stuff you don’t need.
  • Take your look from day to night with a fancy pair of statement earrings. Change the flats to heels and add these to the black dress and your ready for a night on the town.
  • This is my absolute favorite cross body bag. It holds much more than most, while still being a small convenient size. It also has a few zipper pouches that help keep your things secure when you’re in a crowd.

Friday Favorites – Summer Can You Hear Me?

Anyone else feel like this was the longest winter of their LIFE? I’m a summer lovin’, flip-flop wearing, beach days and sunshine girl! Summer is by far my favorite season. With the warm weather FINALLY making an appearance it seems like summer may actually be on its way. Without further ado…. my favorite things about summer.

ONE. I am lucky enough to live a short drive from the beach. The beach is my happy place, and I am looking forward to many weekends spent by the water this summer.

 

TWO. Wearing allll the summer things. I do not like winter clothes. Never have, probably never will. Give me all the bright colors and flip flops.

THREE. With the days getting longer and the weather getting warmer I look forward to long walks through the neighborhood to wind down the day. It so nice to be able to de-stress, spend some time outside, and get in some extra exercise. Win, win.

Asics

FOUR. Besides weekends at the beach I have a few trips already planned this summer. I always look forward to summer vacations when the weather turns warm. I’m excited to share all our summer travels with you!

FIVE. My final favorite thing about summer is being able to have cocktails outside on a patio, roof top, beach, or porch. I have been very into the Aperol Spritz since the weather turned warm. It tastes better with a side of sunshine. What’s you favorite summer cocktail?

 

Friday Favorites – Must Have Travel Products

  • This is the best lip balm of all times. It’s great for on the plane to keep your lips from drying out, but also for everyday.
  • I always pack wipes to wash my face in a hurry on trips. These are my favorite ones.
  • I have super curly hair and this is probably my favorite new purchase. I have to dry my hair with a diffuser and this one fits ALL hotel hairdryers so I don’t have to pack both anymore.
  • This is the best for refreshing your SPF on the go! It has a cooling sensation when you spray it too, which is great for hot days walking around new cities.
  • So I saw one of my favorite artist who travels a lot cleaning her airplane seat with these on Insta Stories, and I was all that is so brilliant because….gross. And now I always have them in my bag on trips.
  • I love to use trips as a time to try out new cleansers and moisturizers. I buy the smaller sizes because they are easier to pack, and I can always go back for the larger one if I really like it. I think Ulta has the best selection of small travel size products to choose from.
  • I pack everything in this bag which is nothing fancy to look at, but it holds SO much stuff, and the detachable pockets come in handy to use for other things also.

I’m heading to the beach this weekend! I am so excited that warm weather is finally here. Hope you have a great weekend!
