Summer Lakehouse Weekend Packing List


I’m back… with another packing guide!

(Make sure you check out my BEACH and CITY packing guides for more weekend getaway ideas!)

This coming weekend we’re headed back to Ithaca, New York where I spent 4 years of my life studying hard (and making other more questionable choices) at CORNELL UNIVERSITY. Go Big Red!

It’s reunion weekend and the first time I’ll be back on campus in close to 10 years… way too long. Rather than bunk up in the college dorms, my friends and I decided that renting a lakehouse would be a really fun alternative.

Between days reminiscing on campus, touring the nearby CAYUGA WINE TRAIL (the Finger Lakes are most well-known for their Rieslings, in case you were curious!) and obviously lots of eating and drinking like we’re 21 years old again, our weekend ahead is sure to be one for the books… and the hangovers.

My packing mantra for this trip is: Keep it light. Keep it layered. Keep it comfortable.


JACKETS: 1 // 2 // 3

DRESSES: 4 (TOP + BOTTOM) // 5 (love the high-low hem!) // 7

TOPS: 11 (the softest, drapiest plaid shirt I have ever owned!) // 12 // 14 // 15 // 16 (with temps in the 70’s during the day and 50’s at night, a versatile cardigan is a MUST) // 22 // 23

BOTTOMS: 8 // 9 // 10 // 13 

SHOES: 19 // 20 (one of the 2 M.GEMI pairs I recently ordered — love) // 21 

ACCESSORIES: 6 (a simple addition to #7 to give a bit more waist definition and shape) // 17 (a hold everything, hands-free bag for daytime activities) // 18

I’ll be sharing all of the live Ithaca/Cornell reunion action on INSTAGRAM and TWITTER, so be sure to follow along!
