5 Must-have Fashionable Pieces to Pack for Every Weekend Trip.

What are your summer plans? If they include any day or weekend trips beware of one big pitfall — overpacking.

To avoid bringing too much you can bring along these 5 key pieces that will get you from beach to a summer soiree without skipping a beat.

1. Basic Blazer – Blazers are my favorite rotating wardrobe staple. Wear it over dresses, belt it over a dress, or pair with jeans and a tee for a more casual look. Try a lightweight material — perfect for the spring and summer months.

2. White t-shirt

One of my favorite wardrobe essentials is a basic white tee. A v-neck is great to pair with a statement necklace and a skirt or throw it on under that blazer for a quick and classy look.

3. Statement Necklace

Speaking of a statement necklace, try a metal or black update of a timeless classic or add a pop of color with some bright bling and pack more punch to a basic ensemble.

4. Little Black Dress (AKA LBD)

The Little Black Dress is and always will be the most versatile and basic item in your wardrobe. Pick a cotton style – great for summer (or any time of year).

5. Dark Rinse Jeans

Pick a fit that flatters your body style – but always in a dark rinse which looks more expensive. Boot cut and straight leg styles tend to be very versatile.

Remember, pack light and have fun!
