How To Pack For A Weekend Getaway

Stop stressing over packing! Follow Amy’s easy Labor Day weekend packing checklist to style tons of looks (without bringing the kitchen sink).

 

3 BAGS YOU NEED (and how to pack them!)

 

When talking about the ultimate packing list, I always talk about bags. They can completely change an entire look (which is why you need 3 just for a weekend getaway). They should cover all categories of possible activities including the beach, daytime adventures and nighttime fabulousness. And that’s it, do not try and squeeze in any more. We are trying to streamline your packing with reality in mind! Watch the video below for quick and easy tips on how to pack your 3 awesome bags. And be sure to click on my checklist to shop some look-alike options for your next trip!

 

HOW TO PACK YOUR HAT

 

You need at least one hat for a fabulous weekend getaway. This is not optional, this is a necessity. Your face is your money maker and sun damage is not conducive to this concept. Plus you are WAY more fabulous with a hat on. Think of this styling choice as a daytime activity topper in addition to your beach days. Does the threat of packing said hat cause you to leave it in your closet? Stop no more. Watch this video and learn how easy it is to bring your awesome (and protective) hat with you.

 

THE PERFECT BEACH LOOK

 

Getting ready for the beach should not be an uphill battle. It can definitely be a daunting experience if being half-naked around strangers is not your thing. So let me make it just a little easier (and more fabulous). Just a few basics will have you feeling good, looking good and showing off your sassy sense of style while still being comfortable. Check out the video below to create the ultimate beach look no matter your body type, budget or lifestyle!

The Best Activewear Brands

Back again by popular demand! On this episode of #CommunityClosetChallenge, Tatiana, a Corrective Exercise Specialist, chatted with Amy about their favorite gym clothing that actually holds everything in. Hallelujah. 

 

TO BUY OR NOT TO BUY EXPENSIVE YOGA PANTS

 

I get it, yoga pants have gotten crazy expensive. When did exercise clothing become investment pieces? So, is it completely crazy to spend $100 on yoga pants? $200? I personally promote the “cost per wear” concept, but understand that the initial swipe of your credit card might be painful. If you consider a brand like Ultracor that is reversible, lasts around 4 years and cuts their styles based on different heights, then yes, I believe spending $200 is worth it. You are definitely getting more bang for your buck. That is $25 per year which is about what a cheap pair would cost.

 

THE BEST SPORTS BRA FOR YOUR BOOBS

 

It is a constant war. How does one keep their boobs tucked away comfortably while doing just about any workout? Finding the right sports bra that doesn’t look like it was designed for your grandma is a very real problem….. until now! Nike really is the best offering 3 support systems, light, medium and high. Search no more, your girls will be happy and looking cute in one of their sassy designs from here on out.

 

THE BEST BLACK YOGA PANTS

 

Finding the perfect black yoga pants can be almost as exhausting as finding the perfect jeans. Luckily you came to the right place for answers. Nancy Rose Performance has created a hybrid cotton and lycra high-waisted style that sucks and tucks in all the right places. Your butt even looks better in these awesome yoga pants. Need any more reasons to grab a pair immediately? I didn’t think so.
