Weekend getaways. With summer officially beginning on Monday, they are probably on your mind. I’m saying goodbye to spring and hello to summer, with my own weekend getaway to Vermont. As I’m typing, I’m sipping my favorite Sauvignon blanc, sitting on a farmer’s porch that overlooks a beautiful lake, and loving this down time. There isn’t a sound…other than my happy GSD, waddling into the water. It is such a nice change of pace from Back Bay.
When planning a weekend getaway, I find it best to plan what you are going to wear a week before your trip. Here are just a few of my favorite staple items for a trip up North.
Weekend Getaway Checklist:
1- Comfortable shorts
2- Loose Fitting Shirt
3- Romper or dress
Have a great weekend!
As any fellow busy bee knows, comfort is key. You can leave the house looking amazing, but if you’re not feeling great, it’s going to show within the first hour of your day. The better you feel, the better you look! I keep this in mind every morning as I get dressed. Monday through Wednesday, I work ten hour days-being comfortable is a necessity. The very first thing that I do in the morning is check the weather. You want to be prepared for anything that the day might bring. And as we know in New England, the weather is constantly changing. I find layering to be key in any outfit!
Another thing that I like to keep in mind is whether or not the outfit is appropriate. I nanny three boys, so I need to make sure that I not only look pulled together, but that I have nothing “hanging out”. Prior to nannying, I worked in at a daycare and let me tell you, I picked up some fashion pet peeves. When working with children, or really with any job, you need to make sure that you’re following dress code (whether established or not) and that you always cover up: belly, bum, and chest. Keeping this in mind, I found the cutest pair of overalls! I can play with the kids, and not have to worry about jeans that may fall down. Plus, this look is totally adorable! Whether I’m at the zoo, park, or museum I know that I will be ready for anything.
Beth Denim Overall: G.H. Bass & Co. (Factory Outlet). Kilty Hardsole Moccasins: Minnetonka. Necklace: Africa. Black Basic Tee: H&M. I bought this tee years ago. Similar black tees from H&M: here.
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Sunday! No matter where you live, I hope you had amazing weather this weekend, and were able to get outside! New England had a warm weekend, and I took full advantage by going on runs with my German Shepherd. Running is my favorite way to unwind and clear my head, and the weather was perfect for it. The Boston Garden was beautiful to run through, and the hills on the Commons were a great challenge! Hopefully this great weather is here to stay!
One of my all-time favorite things about warmer weather, is the ability to wear a vest as a jacket! Layering with a vest is a great way to complete a look, without overpowering the outfit. During the winter it stinks when you have a cute outfit, and need to cover up with a big coat! Instead of being fully covered, a vest can complement your look.
My new obsession is faux fur vests! They have similar great qualities as a puffer vest, but help dress a look up. This black faux fur vest from Target is incredibly soft. I felt comfortable and stylish, while taking a walk on this breezy Sunday.
As always, thank you for reading!
