What to Pack for a Weekend Trip: July Edition

John Paul and I haven't traveled together since New Year's! It's a pity, really, because not only are we great travel buddies, but we also like being around each other a lot. When I heard that my Daddy Man and Karen were going to be visiting Grandma in North Carolina this weekend, the wheels in my mind started turning, and I convinced JP to make the trip down to Wilmington for the a few days. It's the best of both worlds: we can see family and get away from the city at the same time!
I'm not a great packer, but seem to be getting marginally better as time goes on. For this three day trek to the beach, let's start with the bottoms.
A pair of worn-in, boyfriend jeans. Can be worn cropped or long. Gap
Jean shorts. Wear with shorts or bikini top. Gap
Khaki shorts. Wear for dinner, no bathing suits. J. Crew
Cute skirt. For bathing suits or shopping adventures. J. Crew
Bathing suit cover up. For taking good care of our skin! Gap (wow, are you noticing a trend?)
Drapey shirt. Can be worn with shorts or as a cover up. H&M
A variety of lightweight tops. For dinners, lunches, whatever. Striped- F21, Giraffes- H&M, Green- Anthropologie
Several bathing suits to mix and match. All Gap.
Throw in some brown sandals, a pair of flip flops, and unfussy accessories and you're all set!
