How to Pack Light and Sparkle this Weekend (Guest Post)

As many of us in Michigan plan to hit the road and head up north for the long holiday weekend, inevitably we find ourselves scrambling at the last minute to figure out what to pack.  How will we arrive with one small weekend bag and manage to look appropriately festive during all our fun times at the beach, BBQ's and parades?  It's quite possible that many of us do not own Fourth of July attire such as this:
However, it is pretty likely that your closet may contain several items similar to those below.  Just a few simple pieces and you will look perfectly styled and patriotic for all your events!
Pack Light
As you gear up to hit the beach try experimenting with different ways to wear your cover-ups.  Most knit maxi skirts can be worn as a skirt or as a dress.  Chambray shirts are super versatile and can be worn open as a cardigan, or knotted at the waist.
Beach Mix and Match
While we are all hoping for warm, sunny days occasionally the weather can be less than cooperative.  Having a great hat helps protect you from the sun but can also come in handy if you get caught in some light rain.  A basic tee can be layered over a sundress for some extra coverage without bulk.  Long skirts and dresses come in handy on cool evenings to cover your legs if you don't feel like wearing jeans.

So go ahead and cross packing off your 'To-Do' list and have and fantastic long weekend.  Happy Fourth of July!!
