weekend getaway essentials

Hi, weekenders! I rarely post on a weekend, but we had such a busy week that I didn't get many posts in and wanted to say hello. Brandon had surgery on Friday and even though it was pretty minor, he can't lift anything for six weeks. So earlier this week, we were on a marathon called "get as many house things done as we can before surgery." Painting, decorating, furniture buying, heavy cleaning, ceiling scraping, furniture rearranging, light fixture installing ...you name it, it probably got done. It's nice to have B's surgery behind us and for him to have at least six weeks of downtime ahead. The kid just doesn't quit! But, our entire house is allllmost all freshly painted now and I can't wait to share pictures!

Today I'm sharing some getaway goodies that I'd love to pop into a duffle for a getaway. We're talking about doing a caribbean trip late fall, but if I could pick a place to take a weekend getaway right now, I would love to go to the mountains! It's so, so hot here right now and some less humid air would really be appreciated!

one: a pair of no-fuss flip flops that will go with anything (or these—they are under $16!)
two: a yoga top that could easily go over a swimsuit, too
three: hard to beat a good white top that can be dressed up with great accessories (like the ones shown around it!)
four: perfect to take along on a trip to dress up a simple outfit
five: one of those lightweight layering necklaces that you never want to take off
six: soft pants that are great for travel and will carry you throughout your trip in a chic, relaxed way
seven: moisture + color in one beautiful tube. tab on a tiny bit and smudge with fingers for a light stain or glide it on for a classic red lip!
eight: love a roomy, wipeable duffle. this one is so classic and I love the color
nine: these will instantly pull together any look. hyla's jewelry never disappoints
ten: favorite jeans. rarely travel without them! 
eleven: these shades are too fun
twelve: a summer read that takes place in three of my favorite places—charleston, NYC, & the BVIs.
thirteen: carry your makeup or baubles in it for the trip, use it as a clutch while there
