Stress-Free Packing Tips for a Weekend Getaway

Who doesn’t love a quick weekend getaway? I know I do! But sometimes when you’re faced with the task of packing for just a few days it can seem a bit like a chore. Lucky for you, this post will explore what I find to be some of the best pieces to bring so that you don’t spend a lot of time packing or unpacking for your trip. In the spirit of summer, we’ll be imaging that this mini vacay will take place somewhere warm and by the sea.

Thanks to bold colors, versatile shoes, and a few basics, you’ll have everything you need to grab your bag and go without having to pack everything but the kitchen sink.

Maxi Dress

A maxi dress is a great versatile packing piece. With the right shoes and accessories, it will seamlessly take you from day to night. When the sun is up, pair one of these with flat, lace-up sandals and hit the shops, head to lunch, or use it as a swimsuit coverup. And when the sun goes down, throw on a pair of heels and statement earrings, as you head out the door for dinner, drinks, and dancing.

Lightweight Jacket

Even though it’s summer, early mornings and evenings can still get chilly, so sometimes a lightweight jacket can come in handy. Add a different texture to your getaway wardrobe by choosing a denim piece that you can throw on over all of the tops and dresses you brought along for the trip. You can roll up the sleeves for an even more chill beach vibe.

Swimsuit

When your beautifully printed one piece can double as a top, it will make packing for your weekend getaway less hectic. Choose something like the gorgeous swimsuit above and pair it with shorts and those neutral lace-up sandals you packed. If you get chilly, utilize the lightweight denim jacket mentioned earlier.

Stylish Shorts

White, high-waisted denim shorts are a great packing piece for a weekend jaunt. The neutral color works well with the tops you decide to bring along—not too many, though! And like I said previously, these also look just as great over your one-piece swimsuit, creating a stylish look that won’t require packing a lot of unnecessary tanks and tees.

Strappy Sandals

stress free packing tips, getaway, weekend getaway, vacation, vacay, baecation, travel, blogger, desert, trip, road trip, melrodstyle,

Let’s face it, more than two pairs of shoes for a weekend getaway seems like a bit much, so let’s exercise some restraint here by choosing the right ones. A pair of trendy, flat, lace-up sandals will work with everything seen on this list—maxi dress, shorts, swimsuit, and more. They’re comfy and perfect for day wear.

Statement Heels

stress free packing tips, getaway, weekend getaway, vacation, vacay, baecation, travel, blogger, desert, trip, road trip, melrodstyle,

Short trips mean your evenings out are limited to maybe one or two at the most, so bringing more than one pair of heels would be a bit much. Choose a single pair that will match everything you brought, like your maxi dress, and opt for something comfortable as well as fashionable, like the trendy block heel.

Aside from undergarments and the rogue accessory, following just a few simple suggestions will make a world of difference when preparing for your trip. And now that you’ve gotten a few pointers on packing easily and efficiently for a weekend getaway, you’ll be able to concentrate more on sipping daiquiris by the bay, than wrestling with an overstuffed suitcase.

If you follow me on snapchat (melrod1206), you saw that  my sisters threw me the most amazing bridal shower. I have no words to express how beautiful everything was. From the decor to the desserts to the specialty bride refreshments, to being surrounded by my close friends and family. I couldn’t have had a better shower.

During the bridal shower, which I plan to share more photos soon, so stay tuned, I surprised my girls with these beautiful gifts. I am truly blessed to have amazing sisters in my life and since these girls mean so much to me, I wanted to gift them a few goodies that make the perfect gift to give before the big day.

I gifted my bridesmaids these beautiful Serendipity Robes in pink blush by Love Ophelia. I absolutely love the crochet trim on the bridesmaids robes. They’re perfect to get ready in for the day of.

They even gifted me a robe, which is called the Willow Robe in vintage white. I’ve incorporated a lot of lace in my wedding so the bell lace scallop details on the bell sleeves give my wedding theme that extra touch of whimsy.

And of course I couldn’t forget about my flower girls. They got the Serendipity Flower Girl Robe to match my bridesmaids as well.

Because Love Ophelia is so amazing, they’re giving my friends 15% off any item from their website. Use coupon code: MELROD.

In case you missed it, I attended the Magic Tradeshow in Las Vegas as one of the Magic influencers. It was really exciting to be on the panel with other very inspiring bloggers. I spoke in 3 different panels about YouTube, beauty, fashion and tips on how to make your brand successful.

This is what I wore for the first day. I keep the look clean and simple with this fun culottes jumpsuit and snakeskin booties.

Here’s what I wore the second day (last day). I decided to dress down with my favorite faux leather jacket, comfy jeans, and of course another snakeskin boot. To complete my outfit, I paired the look with this really cool fringe bag.

Vegas was so much fun! I had the opportunity to meet new bloggers and make new friends.

Stay tuned for my Magic Vlog.

My Love for Dove

Today I’ve partnered with Simply Stylist and Dove to talk about Dove Dry Spray, which is an antiperspirant that protects from perspiration and odor for 48 hours. That’s right – 48 hours! I know, I know. You’ll want to keep reading (trust me).

Before Dove Dry Spray came into my life, I was using an ordinary deodorant that I had to reapply throughout the day. In fact, I would carry my deodorant stick with me. It was such an inconvenience, especially for the on-the-go gal that I am. It is definitely a travel necessity as well.

I’ve only been using the Dove Dry Spray for a few days now and it has quickly become my new favorite deodorant. I received two different deodorants to try. I’ve been using the dry spray for sensitive skin. It has a soft and clean scent to it, which I absolutely love. The best part about this Dove Dry Spray is that it doesn’t leave behind any residue, and it goes on instantly dry, while keeping my skin moisturized. The clear tone variant has the exact same benefits, and also helps restore skin to its natural tone.

With my busy schedule, this Dove Dry Spray has worked wonders for me. Dove Dry Spray sure is giving my old deodorant stick a run for its money. Out with the old, in with the new.
