A 48-Hour Weekend Getaway & What to Pack

If you follow me on Instagram you know that Ken and I spent the weekend in Northern Michigan. It was a quick getaway but we were there for the very best reason, celebrating the wedding of one of my girlfriends from college. So today in addition to sharing photos from the weekend i’m also going to show you what i packed for our quick trip.

For me, packing light has been something I’ve really had to work on but in the last couple years I’ve surprised myself at how little I actually need for a vacation. It does take a little planning but I’ve found that it pays off to have less choices if you bring quality options. Here’s a peek into what was in my tiny suitcase and a few of the outfits that I wore. Check back tomorrow for a fun date night look that I wore on our first night!

  4. a statement bracelet {similar here}
  5. my two favorite pairs of denim, white and classic blue
