Summer is just about here and with it comes spontaneous weekend getaways and quickie vacations. While the basics of what to pack for a weekend getaway are obvious (clothes, makeup, toiletries), there are a few additional tired and true things that I always stow away for last minute weekend jaunts… Whether you’re planning a local staycation or quick visit out to the desert, these are my must-have items for an eleventh hour escape:

  • Sunglasses
  • Camera (paired with a chic strap, of course)
  • A really good book
  • Flip flops
  • Big floppy hat
  • Swimsuit
  • Swimwear cover-up
  • Sunscreen
  • Lip balm with SPF
  • Tote bag
  • iPhone + phone charger
  • Clear nail polish
  • Aloe Vera (in case of sunburn)
  • Oversize towel
  • iPod + iPod speakers

Are you planning any weekend getaways this summer? If so, where are you headed?
