Our Edit: The Perfectly Packed Weekend Bag

Posted by Bikini Owner

Weekend escapes are one of summer's joys—short Fridays, evening drives, and an escape from the status quo, even if it's just two days, can be so recharging. Not so fun? The weekly packing scramble. What we yearn for on Thursday evening is an express-lane bag packing session, or better yet, a go-bag that is perpetually at the ready, stocked with simple but smart solutions to our weekend needs. We've edited down to the essentials, figuring that most trips are out to the beach, or pool, or lake, and require little more than a few basics, a great suit, and easy, no-mirror makeup. Here are our must-haves for the perfectly packed weekend bag, clockwise from the top. 

1. Shots at the beach are safe when you have a splashproof case for your iPhone. It even has a tripod—so you can skip the selfie and frame it right. Phone case, $110. 

2. A gauze-weight scarf reports for double and triple-duty on long weekends. Along with fighting evening breezes, it's also a sarong, a turban, a tablecloth for an impromptu picnic. Scarf, $68

3. Classic, dark-lens shades keep the midday glare at bay but are also  must-haves for early morning bike rides and sunset strolls. Sunglasses, $40

4. Eyes, cheeks, lips, all covered with one smart, creamy stick in a flattering bronzy shade. Multiple Stick, $39

5. Leaving a set of teeny makeup brushes permanently packed means no more scrambling on Monday morning for your go-to, which is still packed from the weekend. Mini brush kit, $39

6. A glamorous one-piece can double as a top for cocktails when you add a breezy palazzo pant and chic sandals. One-piece, $371

7. Zip it all into a sturdy, roomy carrier that has straps long enough to sit comfortably on your shoulders (trust us on that one). Weekender, $74
