so you wanna get away, yes?
i feel you. i mean i feeeeeeeeel you!!! i’ll stop feeling you now.
summer continually seems like a consistent stream of fleeing your city to flock to the closest body of water where we tend to remain there during these 3 short months. whether a lakehouse, the hamptons or just your bathtub (no judgment, bottles up), these getaways clear the mind, fill the tummy, bring you new jamz and allow your skin to absorb copious amounts of the vitamin D it knows it will be craving come february.
i highly encourage weekend getaways MAAAINLY because i secretly obsess over overnight bags. ITS TRUE. a clean round duffle made of leather strikes my fancy any day of the week although friday is prime.
“but ashli! with an eye! what ever do i pack! i always end up overpacking!!!! exclamation points!!!“ —-> tragedy strikes. again i feeeelll
you……sorry. i said i was done. i’ve done the pre-thinking for you and basically got all yo’ bases covered. by now in life, if you find your closet devoid of the following basic items, slap your wrist but then celebrate because YAY! SHOPPING!
enjoy!! or don’t. which is sad for you (p.s. all links below bring you to products! +3 pts for convenience)
**insider tip: correspond all colors so you can mix and match (in this case, black and white with some basic color pops)
ok so you’re packed. NOW ASHLI, WHAT NEXT??!?!?!
fear not, i shall spell it out for you.
outfit 1: post work travel via car, train, helicopter where you obvs need to be comfortable but also need those slip ons for gross bus stops and to protect your toesies from cold interiors. also, pants > shorts while traveling. always. tee for comfort, cardi for coze.
outfit 2: dinnatiiime with yo hunny, best friends or your sweet self (good for you for traveling alone!). dressed up but not too overdone, this skirt and blouse combo properly fits in to any dinner atmosphere
outfit 3: winery/brewery tour where comfort may be key but so is cuteness. you will have the opportunity to sit at both venues, so definitely bring those heels back out for a day of drinks and a silky tee. too warm? the white shorts work too.
outfit 4: the restaurant recommended by the girl in Walgreens where all the locals go and they have the best live music. play it cool and easy and bring that funky button up to add some cool factor. throw on the flat sandals after a day in heels.
outfit 5: aww do we have to leeeave? and yes. sadly. you must. throw your flannel back on since its the last thing you took off and its likely sitting next to you on the nightstand, your fave skinnies and those amazing slip ons and head back to your home.
………until next weekend.
any plans comin up? going out of town? can i come? am i being too creepy after telling you im feeling you? im sorry? why am i still here? maybe youll just forget about me if i keep writing question marks? no? ????? how bout now???
