With summer just around the corner, we’re guessing you have a few fun trips planned over the upcoming months. While there’s nothing better than a weekend getaway to refresh and recharge, there’s nothing more stressful than not knowing what to pack. Luckily, Team SN has got you covered with our list of essentials for any mini-vacay on your calendar. Keep scrolling for our ultimate summer packing list.


When packing for any trip, it’s important to remember to keep things simple while selecting versatile pieces you can transform for multiple outfits. With this idea in mind, we’re always packing a Tee that can be dressed up or down. Looking for something you can wear from beach to dinner? We recommend one of our chic white sets. Now we can't forget activewear. And right now we are loving Alo's Cantaloupe collection. A fun pop of color is a necessity for your summer tan!


Vacations are all about rest and relaxation, so of course, Team SN has the best beauty and skincare recs for your weekend getaway. We’re loving Après Beauty’s Collagen EyeMasks and Cool + Glow Facial Towelettes for a little spa moment back in your hotel room. Heading out for the day? SPF is not a must it's a need. And we love a UV protectant that is lightweight, nourishing, and smells wonderful too. If you don’t have time to do a full shampoo and conditioner routine, but you feel like your hair needs a little extra attention, try Allyoos Scalp and Root Rinse as an alternative. And of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention a hydrating face oil to nourish your skin for wherever your travels may take you.


What accessories to bring for a long weekend? We advise simple jewelry staples that will go with whatever fabulous outfit you have planned. Alexa Leigh’s White Heart Necklace is the perfect complement to any sundress or matching set. We also recommend a pair of hoops for day to night dressing. Loving the fisherman sandal trend? Us too. Splurge on these from The Row or save on these from Reformation. They're simple, chic, and the perfect summer shoe for any and every weekend activity. Add a crossbody bag that doubles as pretty and practical and you're more than ready for your weekend away.

Any and Everything Else

As much fun as packing clothes, shoes, and accessories is, we know how difficult it can be to fit everything in your carry-on. In order to consolidate and create more space in your suitcase, you’re going to need a set of packing cubes to pack as efficiently as possible. Want something a bit lighter to store all your essentials in. Everyone needs a fun weekender in our opinion. Grab a matching cosmetic case and you're almost ready for your next getaway. And speaking of practicality, the Nori’s Press Steam Iron and Fabric Facial are a must for your packing list. They're the perfect solution for keeping your clothes refreshed and ready for wherever your trip may take you.
