Hooray for Friday and summer getaways...whether you're packing up for a weekend at the beach or jetting off to the island of your dreams efficient packing has become an art.  With space at a premium,  knowing what to bring, where to stash it and how to get the most mileage out of the fewest pieces are a must for a stress free time.  These are the items I take with me when enjoying time away.  Double-duty items that can be dressed up or relaxed down are vacation lifesavers.  This top does exactly that by pairing perfectly with shorts by day or with a maxi skirt at night.  Versatility is key when talking shoes as well.  These wedges can work with shorts and a ruffle tee while brunching and with this dress when heading out for cocktails at sunset.  Don't forget that beauty sleep is still priceless.  A great little sleep mask like this will help block out extraneous light that could disrupt your sleep cycle.  I've linked these and other vacation packing essentials below.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and safe travels ahead!
