After years of spending weekends in the Hamptons, I finally have packing down to a science. My strategy? Choose multifunction clothing and accessories that can be worn rain or shine, regardless of the day's activities.
My weekend bag is typically filled with easy summer dresses and tunics that can be worn to the beach over a swimsuit, out for a laid-back day of shopping, or to a casual dinner. Chic pool-to-party sandals and simple accessories and makeup round out the list:
The Bag: A LeSportsac Large Weekender is lightweight, colorful and roomy enough to carry everything I need.
2 Dresses that can be worn day or night and can be worn over a swimsuit to the beach or at the pool.
2 Tunics to wear as a beach cover-up or paired with shorts and pants.
2 Tops - t-shirts or tanks
1 Pair of White Jeans or White Cropped Pants to wear with the tunic, tank or t-shirt
1 Pair of Shorts to wear with the tunic, tank or t-shirt
1 Lightweight Cardigan and 1 Lightweight Scarf if the weather gets chilly
1 Pair of Metallic Flat Sandals to wear with everything
1 Pair of Sunglasses
1 Canvas Tote that packs flat and can be carried to the beach or to town
1 Summery Clutch to take to dinner or an evening out
