A few weekends ago Darrius and I planned a staycation in downtown Baltimore. Our friends were getting married in the city, so we decided to make a weekend of it! We stayed Friday – Monday at the beautiful Renaissance Harborplace. It was also our anniversary weekend, so of course, we wanted to spend some quality time together celebrating. We lounged around, ordered room service, enjoyed the wedding festivities and made time to hang out in the city.
In case you didn’t know, I was born and raised in Baltimore. Whenever I go back to visit for more than a day I get super giddy! I love my city. It’s truly a lovely place to visit, especially during the summer. Knowing that I’d be walking around downtown, I planned the perfect weekend staycation outfit, including the one below.
I knew my weekend staycation wardrobe had to be practical. The sheer blouse and lightweight pants were a perfect choice. Of course, the sunnies were necessary and bringing a pair of my most comfortable flats was a no brainer. If you’re planning an upcoming weekend staycation this summer, here are the 7 wardrobe items I suggest packing:
1. Comfortable Shoes
2. A Pair of Sunglasses
3. All Purpose Purse/Clutch
4. Interchangeable Jewelry/Accessories
5. Flowy Top
6. Comfortable Pants (or Leggings)
7. Extra Undergarments
I definitely suggest #7 because you may extend your trip for a day or two at the last minute. That happened to us. We’d planned to leave on Sunday afternoon, after we spent the day shopping and exploring, but we were so tired by the end of the day we ended up staying until Monday. With Darrius working right downtown his commute the next morning was a breeze. My 25 minute drive back to Columbia, MD wasn’t that bad. Being able to spend a carefree weekend with hubs was worth it.
So tell me, do you like my weekend staycation outfit? What would you pack? Let me know!
Thanks for reading and until next time, be blessed and stay safe…XO!
