Late Summer Getaway Wardrobe

21 comments:


We have not been able to get away for any long trips this summer but we have a few weekends planned and love to take off in September when the weather cools a bit

I'm not an advanced awesome packer but I have learned a few tricks, one of which is to take a wardrobe that essentially is all in the same color family 

In this case I'm taking every thing in 
white
khaki 
&
soft blush pink 

I try to keep jewelry to a minimum,
 usually one necklace, a great watch and two pairs of earrings
(do you own an Apple watch?  I don't but they look pretty darn fun)

I always pack a hat...it's that crazy hair thing that happens to me ; )
Maxi's work because that can transition from day to dinner fairly easily 
This is a pretty light creamy skirt from Zara

and I like easy comfortable pants
usually jeans or drapey linen
and tailored cropped trousers are a great call



For a quick weekend trip, I wear one pair of shoes and bring a spare but never more than that because I never wear them!  
Seriously..... I have packed more shoes for vacations 
and wind up wearing only two pair the entire trip

Always a pair of sneakers
chucks are a great choice 

and a pair of low heals or maybe a great comfy boot

I found these on Zappos and I loooooove them


Our little getaways are alway by car 
so luggage is simple 
with duffles that work both as a purse and for clothes

I love this classic Branch Tote
from LL Bean
you can have these monogramed too

and throw a simple clutch inside the tote for shopping or dinner

this simple white one is from Brooks Brothers


So here is what I have planned for two days 
on a foodie getaway in Northern California




 turquoise necklace @Nordstrom
bucket hat @UrbanOutfitters (Stussy)
belt @JCrew
heels @Macy's
sunnies @Salt
chucks @Zappos
sweater@RalphLauren (Denim & Supply)
vest@BannanaRepublic
cashmere wrap scarf@White+Warren
basic tee@Gap
tote@LLBean
white jeans@LaurenRalphLauren
knit maxi@Polo 
clutch@BrooksBrothers
nails@Dior (Tra-La-La)
lips@Dior (Creme de Rose lip balm)
eyes@UrbanDecay

(I didn't give you all of the links but these are all items that are really easy to find)

oh and don't forget the wine opener
HiCoup@Amazon

see you soon!

  1. Kelley,
    I love the idea of a road trip, especially to Northern California. Great selection of essentials. I saved your last post about "the uniform". I'm in the pare down mode on all things unnecessary. :-)

    1. It's the Dolce Vita Findley. I'm a 7.5 and it fits perfect. I think it runs a bit narrow but that was not a problem for me. No bells or whistles which I love and minimalist to go with so many things. Only have worn them once though ; ) I love zappos too

  5. Perfect wardrobe for Napa, you might want to add one pair of walking shorts to the mix, it can still be warm in Napa in September. You will have a wonderful trip, it is so beautiful there. If you stop by Satuui winery be sure to have their cream dill shrimp in the deli, and the roasted veggies, with a baguette it is the perfect picnic lunch with your favorite wine. have fun!! We live about an hour from Napa so we are lucky to go there on a day trip, love it there.
