5F Friday: How to Pack for a Weekend Jaunt
Each Friday we seem to find ourselves browsing sunny 5F for the latest looks to complete our weekend look. It only made sense to turn our regular tradition into a regular date on 5th/58th.
This week’s focus?
Packing Tips for your Weekend Getaway
Packing Tip #1: 2-for-1 is always a good thing especially when talking about denim. Conveniently enough, BLEULAB’s smart styles are reversible which means you have even more outfit options with minimal weight (212 872 2887). Here are two of our favorite summer pairs to wear for a warmer or colder trip. We especially love the silver shorts which provide a neutral indigo look on one side and a sleek and edgy look on the other.

Packing Tip #2: The right size scarf can be one of the most functional pieces you’ll own. We like using Erdem‘s scarves as a top, swimsuit coverup, beachy headpiece or blanket during travel (particularly when it comes to keeping warm on the Jitney, LIRR or Delta Shuttle). The options are endless with these gorgeous prints. How would you style your scarf?

Packing Tip #3: Light-weight shoes that are also size manageable are key for your weekender bag. MYMU‘s espadrilles are great for day-to-night, beach or city and the canvas material keeps its shape while packed up. Plus, they are super easy to slip in and out of during the much-dreaded TSA process. Did we mention that they’re comfortable?

Packing Tip #4: Summer sweaters are essential. A light-weight style like this style from Vince can double as a shirt, jacket, pillow or be thrown over a dress to stay warm as the sun sets. Look for warm materials with loose knits or cotton sweaters that are light and can be rolled up in your bag. We tend to wear ours on the plane or car ride to save space and keep warm.

Packing Tip #5: Bring along a piece that can work as a top or dress. We’re wearing this Thakoon Addition shirtdress over white jeans, alone with wedges or flats, or tucked into a skirt. The adjustable drawstring waist, roll-able sleeves and pockets make for an extremely versatile investment piece where one always look pulled together.
