Looks For Less: What To Pack For A Springtime Getaway

Need a break from the chilly weather? We hear you. How about planning a getaway somewhere a little warmer? Whether it’s for a week or a weekend, we have some ideas to make packing less of a headache. By choosing clothes and accessories that are versatile and can mix and match easily, you’ll be all set for a springtime getaway. Plus, spring is right around the corner, so you’ll be able to wear these new purchases daily very soon.

What to Pack For A Springtime Getaway

Below are some fun pieces you can buy for your getaway and pack in your suitcase or weekend bag. A little later on when the weather’s warmer, you can wear them on the regular. On your trip, wear these with the wardrobe staples you already own, like jeans, your favorite tee shirt and a light bomber jacket, and you’ll have a refreshed, versatile wardrobe that isn’t a pain to plan ahead for packing. And did I mention all of these pieces are under $100? Now you can spend a little more money on your trip.

Versatile Top and Skirt

This striped top from Gap and satin and lace skirt from Topshop are an unexpected combination. The crispness of the top balances out the elegant, feminine bias cut skirt. Both pieces can be worn with items you already have in your closet. Skinny pants would pair well with the top and a dark tee shirt or light sweater would work with the skirt to dress it down a bit.

The Walking Shoes

These loafers from ASOS are the perfect anchor for a polished, put together look and will work well for your trip, especially if it involves some walking around and sightseeing. You’re bound to get lots of use out of a comfy loafer in your day to day life too!

Bring Some Bling

For a touch of sparkle, I love these druzy earrings from BaubleBar. They would look ideal mixed and matched with different types of jewelry, from dainty silver necklaces to a gold watch and bangles.

The Chic Backpack

For hands free convenience even when you have to carry a bunch of daily essentials, this fun backpack from Guess is perfection. It comes in many different fun colors too, which is perfect for springtime.
