the weekend escape plan

From Shoptalk Guest Blogger Meg Cuna

A fashion industry veteran, Meg Cuna is the Chief Content Officer for nascent style website StyleCaster. With a resumé that includes a market editor stint at Lucky and the launch of Life & Style Weekly, Meg has a trained eye and well-honed instincts when it comes to fashion. Here, she shares what she packs for her weekend getaways to the Hamptons.

I’m not the first to say this: summer in the city is quite boring. By Friday afternoon, everyone has shut down their computers and already started the trek to the Hamptons. Like (well-dressed) sheep, we travel in herds to escape our urban lives in exchange for two and a half days of sunshine, sand, and water. And with this change of location also comes a change of pace. It’s the perfect chance to leave behind the teetering strappy high heels and swap them out for that favorite pair of gladiators.

The trick to packing for these mini-vacays is to look chic and effortless in the heat. I tend to lean toward a nautical-preppy uniform all weekend long.
