Planning A Weekend "Staycation" in LA

weekend getaway: LA staycation

Eileen Fisher silk tunic, layered necklaces

Evening attire to beat the heat: an easy silk tunic and layered necklaces worn with slim stretch ankle pants.


Tomorrow is le Monsieur’s birthday, so we’re taking off for a weekend “staycation.” Later today we’ll be checking into a nice hotel nearby to enjoy some pampering and a couple of days of being off the leash. Nothing on the schedule except dinner reservations. 🙂

My weekend away wardrobe planning (mostly for evenings) required a sudden switch to Plan B, as we’re heading into yet another heat wave. I’m still keeping an eye on the forecast and noodling over what to bring. I’ll share some in situ outfit pictures on Instagram and Facebook.

Shown above – tunic: Eileen Fisher, prior season (similar) | necklaces: French Kande here and here.

    This looks so much like a linen dress I have that is very loved! Always in style and good for any occasion. Have a lovely staycation!

    Hope you’re having a wonderful mini-break. Love that tunic. Great for layering under cosy toppers too…that’s when and if you guys ever get fall weather.

      Susan, thanks! Not anytime soon, unfortunately.:-( Forecast for today is 98F. Think we’ll be spending most of the day indoors.

    Simple….and perfect! Enjoy your weekend!

    Hurrah for getaways! Since the fact of going out in and of itself is already a huge lift, I can only imagine how much higher you’ll feel wearing clothes you adore. Maybe you’ll even pick up some new favourites while you’re out. Raise a glass – or more – of wine and empty your head – in a good way of course. Happy birthday to le Monsieur.

    I live in the Phoenix area and the heat is so tiresome. We’re all ready for covering up a bit more! Enjoy your long weekend!
