    On any given summer weekend, you can find actress and mother of two Kate Hudson with her family and friends enjoying some her favorite destinations, like New York, Aspen, London, and Greece. So of course, with a travel schedule that fabulous, we had to know what she’ll be wearing this season! At a preview of Hudson’s latest must-haves for Ann Taylor, we chatted with the blonde beauty about everything from the clothing items that make her the happiest to what she’s giving her own mother (that’s Goldie Hawn!) this Mother’s Day.

    What three pieces does every woman need for a summer weekend away?
    “A little dress, something you could dress up or down with heels or flats. A great sweater you can wear with pants or a skirt. I like skirts you can move from a dress to a skirt. [Ann Taylor has] a little tight black skirt you can wear as a skirt, then pull up and wear it as dress.”

    What is your number one travel tip?
    ​“It’s always nice to have a lot of stuff, but simplifying and getting things I can wear 500 different ways makes me the happiest, which is what people would say is the hippie in me. It’s all about multitasking. I want to bring the one thing I can wear multiple times, multiple different ways.”

    What can we find in your suitcase?
    ​“When I go on summer vacations, there are more accessories in my bag than actual clothes. I pack my bathing suits, I pack the staples, and I just bring a lot of jewelry and scarves. I think in the summer, it’s about less clothes and more jewelry.”

    What is your favorite gift to give on Mother’s Day?
    ​“I found a china set my mom really loved, but was expensive, and I got her one piece, and now every year I give her another piece of the set. It’s been many years now, and she gets so excited because she doesn’t really know what she is going to get from it. If somebody loves housewares or tea sets, it’s a really great gift to get a mom. This year, I added to her plates.”

    What do you hope to get this Mother’s Day?
    ​“I think the greatest thing you can get is something beautiful. It’s the flowers that you and the cards. The best thing on Mother’s Day is the kids know it’s your day and they get to pamper mom.”
