Packing for a vacation is exciting, but we'd venture to say that packing for a quick weekend trip is even more of a thrill. You only have a few days to style outfits, so you'll probably pay attention to every little detail. While your classic denim pencil skirt might get worn twice, you might think to bring a silk scarf to tie in your hair to make all the difference. And though you might only need one bikini, you can work the embroidered tunic you wore for the road trip as a cover-up. Yup, it's time to get smart and savvy about the essentials you're packing into that duffle. Just read on for all the inspiration you need, then get to shopping for Labor Day and beyond.
