It's an absolute no brainer that my dream weekend getaway would be to The Breakers, Palm Beach! Every time I go there I feel so happy and at home. Also super fancy! We've stopped by to have brunch, cocktails, or to shop, but I've never gotten to spend an entire weekend there. It would be absolute heaven.
Although deciding where to go would be simple, deciding what to pack would be harder! However, for a beachy getaway I have some things I would need to bring.
Not Shown: Every single Lilly dress I own!
Weekender Bag: This weekender bag from Restoration Hardware was a gift from my future sister-in-law and I absolutely love it. It is deceivingly massive, durable, and so bright! It's the first thing I grab when I'm packing for a weekend away!
iPad: My iPad is my lifesaver when I'm going away and don't want to bring my whole computer with me. I download all the magazines I could possibly get through, and bring it with me wherever I go to relax.
Fun Jewels and Shoes: I dress very brightly all of the time, but when I'm away I turn it up a notch. If you can't be obnoxiously bright on a beach getaway, when can you? These Kendra Scott earrings add the perfect bright touch!
Bright Scarf: I don't think you're allowed into The Breakers without something Lilly, and a Lilly Murfee scarf is perfect. It adds just the right amount of color, and can cover you shoulders if the AC is too strong!
Sunnies and Sunhat: You can't have a beach vacation without fabulous oversized sunglasses and a massive sunhat. Tres Chic ;)
Simplified Planner: This little book contains my life, and nothing will keep me more calm than being able to flip through and see that I have nothing to do but relax that weekend! :)
The not so glamorous part: There are a few other things I never leave behind when I'm headed away for the weekend. First is my little steamer. It is seriously a lifesaver! It's exactly what it sounds like, a mini steamer that is tiny and light so it can easily fit in an overnight bag. It makes steaming all my flowy tops SO easy, and I always look on point. Another thing I have to be careful of is bringing all my products to stay beautiful and healthy! In the sun, I make sure to wear tons of SPF, and all my makeup and moisturizer is at least SPF 20. I also remember to be prepared for anything, and keep some U by Kotex in my bag, just in case! You never want an unexpected surprise to ruin your beach getaway!
What do you bring with you on a weekend getaway?
