Summer in Chicago is one of the best times to be in the city, but after several weekends of craziness it's really nice to get out of town even if just for the day. I get so accustomed to the hustle and bustle of the city that I forget how nice it is just to escape.

For this past weekend's little getaway to Michigan it was such a nice feeling to only have to pack a bag for one night! I am so used to long, drawn out trips and lots of outfit planning. It was a really great feeling to only have to pick out what I was wearing that day and on the way home. My style has been extra casual as of late and I've found myself dressing down more often than up. I'd much rather opt for casual shorts and a hat or a sundress with sandals these days when the sun is shining.

I also realized this weekend that I'm severely lacking in the "weekender" bag department. This little number is the perfect cognac shade, size and perfectly priced. Check out the gallery above to see where you can scoop some weekend getaway essentials
