Chic Living: Everything You Need For a Long Weekend Away

Still have vacation days left this year? Well, what are you waiting for? It’s November… so start making some plans! And what better way to burn paid time off than with a long weekend away? Whether you jet somewhere exotic or stay in your own area code, 2 days and nights on the lam will refresh and recharge you. To get you there in style, we crafted a full 3-day wardrobe around a chic black-and-bordeaux palette and just 3 pairs of go-anywhere shoes, all designed to fit in the sporty Sprightly backpack. Ready to pack?

Start with an athleisure travel look. Comfort is key when you’re on the road or in the air, but you don’t want to forsake style. Pair the Nova slip-on by BZees with a gray legging, soft pink t-shirt and hooded gray poncho. A knit beanie with faux fur pom adds color and a touch of whimsy.

Continue the casual theme on night one by swapping the poncho with a bordeaux-colored cardigan and the Naples boot in glossy black leather. The Sylvan cross-body bag is just big enough to stash keys, wallet and phone, while its crocodile texture adds trend-right polish.

Rise and shine! Yesterday’s travel look should be just right for a power walk to the coffee shop. When you’re ready to sight-see and have fun, slip back into the Naples boot with skinny jeans and a bold plaid blouse. The boot’s block heel will be perfect for a long day spent on your feet, and with your Upwards covered-passport tucked in the Catia1 cross-body bag, you’ll have both hands free to man the selfie stick.

A night out in a new town is rife with possibility. Dress for dinner and dancing in a beaded camisole and miniskirt, plus the bordeaux cardigan and bordeaux Nailah bootie for color. This look is a study in contrast: edgy yet demure, cozy with the cardigan and daring without.

Sunday calls for whatever feels comfiest. Then head home and wrap up the weekend with a clear head, a light bag and one less vacation day to burn.
