Travel Style – Memorial Day Weekend Getaway

Memorial Day Weekend is right around the corner and we’re taking a short three day weekend getaway!  Our destination is but a few hours drive so its easy to over pack by throwing everything into the car.  But… over packing just makes it more of a hassle once I’m there, and even more so to unpack when we return, so I challenged myself to pack for a three day trip in a basic weekender bag.  We’re also going to be out most of the day, so there will be little or no time for outfit changes, so I’ve chosen a few versatile pieces to get me through the weekend in style.

In the South, its common to hear the old fashion guidance that you shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day or before Memorial day.  This rule is absolute pish posh (I wear white year round) but to celebrate the start of the summer heat, I wanted to showcase my white skinnies.

Pairing it with a trendy off the shoulder top with pom poms (similar here) and wedges are perfect to explore the town, brunch and shopping!  A neutral cross body bag is great to pair with all the outfits and especially good while traveling.


Changing out the top for a bright red shirt (similar here and here)  gets me ready for any Memorial day celebration like a friend’s barbeque.

When it comes to summer and travel, one of my favorite go-to’s is a romper (available in navy). It is an entire outfit in one and if you find the right one, it can easily transition from day activities, into the night.  In the day time, throw a jacket (similar here) over top and some white sneakers and you’re ready for any daytime activities.

The shoes (similar here and here) and clutch (similar here, in purple here)give the outfit a little glam to easily transition into night without taking much packing space.

Packing everything including my toiletries fit into my cross body and my weekender bag (similar here)!
