5 Weekend Trip Packing Essentials

Planning a weekend getaway is fun, especially with the warm weather right around the corner.. but packing can get a little stressful! We've narrowed it down to 5 easy pieces everyone should be taking along for the weekend. Follow these little tips to find out what you should always pack to make your trip that much more fun. 







1. A Good Pair Of Shoes:  Soludos are a great and easy item to pack. These are your daytime to-go shoe. Especially in a neutral color - these look great with anything. This particular style, the Tan Leather Platform Smoking Slipper, goes with denim, shorts, and even a cute little sun dress. Available in store and online soon. 






2. A Plaid Top: A Classic easy to wear item for everyone's wardrobe. A plaid top like this Kacie Plaid Shirt from Vintage Havana is the perfect year round essential. Pair with white jeans, darker denim or easy shorts for a pulled together day time look. Look for more cute plaid top styles we have from Bella Dahl and Vintage Havana on shopmint.com. 


3. White Denim: These Maria high rise J Brand jeans are one of the best current styles this season. White denim is a staple every year but we love the Maria and think it is super flattering on every one. Denim is one of the most versatile items in your closet. Style these Maria's in white back to your Soludos during the day and wear with a heel out to dinner for a night time look. This will cut down on overpacking too!





4.White Dress:  It's almost Memorial Day so a little white dress is a must for this season. A white dress can take you from day to night with one simple shoe change. Perfect for work but also any event this season. This Lace Luka Dress by Cupcakes and Cashmere is one of our favorites. 



5. Layering Pieces: Always pack multiple loose layering tees which will go back to all your denim and shorts. Every season you need to freshen up your T shirt collection with some new current styles. This year we are loving new strappy looks and cut out details that are being shown even on a simple tees and tanks. The So In Love Tank from Free People has the cutest strappy details and comes in multiple colors.
