Sometimes a weekend getaway is all you need for a little rest and relaxation. Even though a trip overseas sounds fabulous, my tight student budget doesn’t have that in the books any time soon. Whether you’re planning a weekend at the cottage, a camping trip or seeking an adventurous road trip, getaways are the perfect opportunity to escape from your boring 9 to 5 office job and explore new places in style.
Whenever you’re traveling/on a weekend getaway you can always guarantee walking and sightseeing is a given; so, you can never go wrong with a pair of comfortable shoes. This Fashionista is sporting a pair of classic brown Birkenstocks, which have great support and are infamous for their durability. If you’re looking for something comfortable yet colourful TOMS are my go-to shoe in the summer, they are easy to slip on and the dark grey ones go with everything!
Continuing with the theme of comfort, this Fashionista pairs an over sized nautical T-shirt, complete with a graphic anchor, which is perfect for lounging on a boat during a cottage getaway. To complete her overall laid back look this Fashionista tucks her shirt into a pair of high-waisted navy shorts. You can never go wrong with shorts and a T-shirt it’s comfortable and chic, plus bold stripes are very on trend for summer 2013. (#winning). While killing two birds with one stone, the oversized shirt can later be used as a bathing suit cover up at the beach! Less clothes= less bags= more leg room for the drive to your destination!
As for accessories instead of packing three different handbags for the weekend to coordinate with outfits, opt for a neutral crossbody bag like this Fashionista is sporting. Neutral bags are versatile and a crossbody bag is the perfect size for all occasions. It is big enough for a sightseeing day trip and small enough for a night on the town. Don’t forget to pack a pair of your favorite sunglasses and pile on a couple bangles to add some interest to your outfit and you’re ready for a weekend getaway!
One Simple Change: Swap the Birks for a pair of sophisticated sandals, and tie your hair in a polished sock bun and you’re ready for work on Monday.
