What to Pack for a Weekend Trip; Beachside or Poolside


It’s Wednesday, which means those weekend plans are already on your brain. Who am I kidding? Those weekend plans have been on your mind since Monday! With the warmer weather here, so are weekends away by the beach or pool. Packing a bag can be tricky for some girls and you do not want to be ‘that girl’ who brings 3 bags for 2 nights away. It is possible to pack all of the essentials in one gorgeous weekender bag. All you need are a few key pieces from your wardrobe, such as day to night sandals and easy breezy dresses. What about beauty items you ask? You’re a beach babe now! So think minimal when it comes to your beauty routine. Maybe it’s time to embrace your waves!

From the beaches to the pool, these items have you covered from head to toe – and they can all fit in one, yes one, bag.

Pack items that can be worn alone or mixed and matched with separates. A linen dress can be worn all by itself or paired with a chambray shirt. Linen pants can be super casual by day with a cotton jersey tee or dressed up by night with the right top and jewelry. A nude pair of sandals with some embellishments goes with anything and can easily take you from day to night.
