This weekend, we’re gearing up to scoot out of the city and hit up the windy city, Chicago. Though it’s our first time visiting, we’re old pros at packing for a weekend away in a hurry.
We’re implementing some of our major packing rules and including versatile dresses, light accessories, and one or two statement items (hey, you can never be too careful!). With a city that offers so much to do – and in so little time – we’re bringing along pieces that can easily transition from the plane to evening plans.
We’re definitely going to try to check out the beach and bringing along a basic bikini that can be layered under a simple sundress. Read on to see what else we’re bringing with us!
Heading out of town this weekend? We know we are. Check out what we're bringing with us for a weekend in Chicago.

Traveling light is never easy. Try donning a comfortable midi-length cotton dress that with a simple change of shoes will take you from the airport to the night club.
