Today I’m sharing some practical advice for putting together a comfortable yet classic wardrobe for a cozy weekend getaway. Explore these easy tips for planning what to wear on your weekend getaway.
Picture this: A golden weekend stretching ahead, promising laughter, leisure, and the perfect blend of comfort and style. A getaway where the hustle and bustle of daily life seems like a distant memory, where you can embrace the relaxing rhythms of the weekend fully adorned in a cozy and chic ensemble.
It’s no secret I love to travel, but in general, my budget is usually pretty limited for a weekend getaway. I’m on the road a lot – especially love visiting my kids – but weekend camping trips, weekend trips to a quaint little Airbnb, and spontaneous trips to the beach also top my list of fun get away options.
This summer I took two of my girls on a classic road trip to Maine and it was amazing! When my kids were growing up we often were on the road traveling somewhere every month. We got really good at packing for our large family! These days, I don’t get away with my grandkids (who live with me) as often because they are in school. (I homeschooled my own kids.) But I still love to take off once or twice a month for a quick little overnight or weekend trip.
This fall, I’m hoping to take a least one inexpensive trip to somewhere cozy and quaint. Where would you like to visit this fall? Let’s venture into the picturesque setting of a weekend getaway, bringing along a collection of carefully curated items that epitomize comfort and style. I’m so ready for the weather to cool down and the leaves to start changing colors!
