What to Pack: Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day weekend is fast approaching and to some, it's the last hurrah and marks the end of Summer.  Not to worry, there's nothing like a holiday weekend get away to rejuvenate the spirit and say good bye to Summer in style.  Since what to pack can be a chore, there are 2 simple guidelines that make it easy and guarantee a picture perfect outcome.

First, choose a color story to stick within. Packing similar colors allows you to mix and match pieces to create a variety of looks and reduce the number of items you end up taking.
Second, imagine your favorite style icon or current fashion influencer. Think of how they dress and it will help you create the weekend style you want to achieve.

Whether it's a sophisticated urban destination, sun drenched beach locale, or fresh mountain air resort, make sure to include these fashion trends in your bag.
