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

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

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

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.

DIY Elina Linardaki Inspired Sandals

 

I have been wanting a pair of the Leather Dizzy Parrot sandals by Elina Linardaki for quite some time now, so I decided to make my very own pair.  It has been forever since I’ve last done a ‘Mel Made‘, and with my blog’s 6th anniversary just around the corner, I thought it would be perfect!

Making my very own Elina Linardaki Sandals made me realize how much I love making things. When I first started my blog, it was mainly focused on DIYs, and making these sandals truly reminded me how much I missed it.

I plan to do more fun DIYs, so be sure to follow along to see what I make next.

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.

Leaner Creamer

I drink coffee every single day. In fact, I have two cups a day when I am on the clock. As much as it sounds silly, I always look forward to having that first sip in the morning. I don’t know what it is but it gets me every time.

I stumbled upon Leaner Creamer on instagram and I knew instantly I had to try it.  It’s an all-natural non-dairy powder coffee creamer that promotes weight loss and suppresses your appetite. If your a coffee drinker like myself, then I would definitely recommend trying Leaner Creamer.
