One of the easiest pieces to throw in a weekender bag is a jersey dress. My current favorite is a long sleeve midi dress that I picked up at Forever 21 last Fall (and they still have it in stock!). On our last weekend away to Charlottesville, I wore this comfortable, easy-to-throw-on dress to drive down and explore on our first evening there. What I love about this dress is how versatile it is, because of its simple silhouette and neutral grey hue. It can be worn for a casual walk or easily transition into a date night outfit with some satin slingback heels and a cropped jacket.
My go-to black scarf added some flow to the slim shape of the dress, and I wore, for what seems like the last time that you will see them, my super comfortable leather sandals. We had so much fun exploring this cool college town, but I think it's always easier to enjoy exploring when you're not concerned with what you're wearing! This travel-friendly outfit took up almost zero room in my weekender bag and didn't look the slightest bit wrinkled when I put it on: YES!
