I have lots of weekend trips planned for this summer, so I'm wondering what are

It's a smart idea to have a selection of essentials on hand for your weekend trips. After all, nothing is less relaxing than freaking out over your packing list, right? Since it's summer, obviously you need a bikini. I'm personally obsessed with Eres swimwear (it's expensive, but worth the investment) and suits with high-waisted or mid-rise briefs. Make sure you throw a cover-up in your bag too; Joie makes some really nice options that can also double as tunics or mini dresses. Don't forget to bring some sort of straw tote-stripes are classic, but patterns are cute too-for your trips to the pool, beach, or farmer's market. In addition to all that beach-friendly gear, a lovely, lightweight nightgown is another key piece; right now I'm all about anything that has a Little House on the Prairie vibe. If you don't already have a Panama hat, definitely add that to your list. Maxi dresses are a must too (they're the epitome of easy elegance) or you can do a playsuit or two if you'd prefer. Flat sandals are another essential, whether it's a gladiator style or something simple. Of course you need a handful of casual tops; I tend to favor Kain tanks and t-shirts in both prints and solid colors. Boyfriend jeans are another one of my weekend staples, and last, but not least, I always have a couple pairs of fun sunglasses in my suitcase!
