It just hit me that Memorial Day is next weekend! Yay! But, wow, time really flies!
I have some weekend trips planned in the next month and the first one is this coming weekend. Camping. SIGH. I’m not much of a camper, but I do love the friends who planned the trip and I haven’t seen them in awhile (they live in LA) so am mostly going for that. And to relax, as much as someone like me can do during a camping trip… ha, no actually I’m really excited about it!
Summer weekend trips are pretty awesome because you don’t really need to bring all that much. A few summer dresses, some sunscreen, and you’re good to go. Okay, maybe a little bit more than just that. With a busy week ahead of me and also thinking forward to my other trips, I put together a list of summer weekend getaway essentials.
Not necessarily something I’ll need for camping, but any pool or beach trip requires a good size beach bag to pack all your gear. I love this polka dot beach tote from Target. // The sun is the enemy of youthful skin, so I’ll be sure to layer on plenty of Rodan + Fields SPF 30 body sunscreen. // During the summer, I like to put aside my oversized frames for fun ones like these Nordstrom heart shaped sunglasses. // I recently bought some Birkie-inspired sandals, but if you’re not yet ready for something that extreme, these Zara sandals with straps are cute and comfy. // A good poolside or beach read is always necessary – I’m currently reading #GIRLBOSS. // Always pack a swimsuit, anywhere you go. I already have quite a collection but I’m eyeing this Target Aztec print one. // I like using a weekender for short trips and this Topshop suede luggage bag seems light-weight enough to lug around for a weekend. // I am cautious of when I wear a jumpsuit or romper, but they are great poolside/lake/beachwear. Forever 21 has a great selection and this Forever 21 tribal print romper needs to be in my collection, stat.
