The Perfect Getaway

Thursday, May 27, 2010
Tomorrow I'm headed to my family vacation house on Martha's Vineyard for Memorial Day weekend. Deciding on what to bring for a long weekend is always tricky, I tend to over pack. Here is what I have decided to bring for my perfect getaway.


A dress. I absolutely love a cute dress. I'm a sucker for color, patterns, multiple layers, and spaghetti traps (not all in one dress of course, ha ha ha). I packed a few of my favorite ones for the Vineyard. My top places to find a cute dress this Summer: H&M, Zara and Asos.

Boyfriend shorts. Enough said. Comfy, cute, and easy to pair up with anything. I like paring mine with my razor back Zara tank. Rock yours with gator sandals, flip flops, or even a pair of heels.


Harem Pants, so... I once said I'd never try this trend. I thought these pants would look absolutely weird on me. I found a really cute black hair in H&M recently and decided to give it a shot. To my surprise, they looked super cute. Trendy, fun, and again comfortable, I love my new discovery. Moral of the story: don't be afraid to try something you may be scared of, or out of your comfort zone because you may end up loving it.


Backpack, I love my backpack with all of its cool pockets and space. When I go away for short weekend, I don't need a suitcase. I hate lugging around a shoulder bag because it becomes too heavy and I tend to stuff my bag with a ton of things. I love my backpack because it's easy to carry, has a lot of space to store different things and it's not super big, just the right size. For a cute trendy backpack check out this collection from Urban Outfitters.



Garrett Gourmet Popcorn, for Nana & Papa (my grandparents). I know they will love this delicious treat. When I go away with my family, I love bringing them a special gift from NYC they've never had before. I think this delicious popcorn from Garrett's is the perfect kind of gift. I picked up 2 bags: Pecan Caramel Crisp & Cashew Caramel Crisp. Delicious!

In order to get there I have to take 1 subway, 2 buses and a ferry. It's going to be a long ride. What's on my ipod?
