Packing Guide: Spa Weekend

I have never been more excited for a weekend.

My husband and I are headed to Glenmere Mansion on Friday afternoon.

The agenda? Sleep, spa, read, and eat. And sleep some more.

And it goes without saying that I’m already packed.

There’s not much to pack when your plans involve lots of hours in a robe, but Glenmere’s dinners do require a bit of dressing up, and I don’t want to look like a schlub at breakfast and lunch.

I also don’t want to be buttoned up.

Here’s a peek at what’s in my weekender bag for this weekend.

Encircled t-shirts are my favorites, and I’m packing them in white, black, and navy. I’m also wearing my oversized Cuyana sweater, which is perfect for the drive out and for dressing up jeans and a t-shirt for breakfast.


Even though I plan on being wrapped up in a fluffy robe most of the weekend, I’ll be wearing these Old Navy jeans and these Everlane cashmere sweatpants when I have to be more presentable – breakfasts, lunches, and the drive home. The sweatpants are ideal for lounging, as I binge read this novel.


I love double duty clothing, and this slip dress is no exception. I’ll throw on this wrap on top and pair it with my favorite pumps for one of our dinners.


MM.LaFleur’s silk pajamas have been one of my favorite purchases. I wear then frequently for evening events (with a bold lip and a great pair of heels), and I also love lounging in them when I want to feel a little fancy. What I actually sleep in? These amazingly soft LAKE pajamas.

Workout gear

Glenmere offers complimentary yoga in the mornings, and I need to get in my long run this weekend as well. I’m packing a few Old Navy pieces (two pairs of these pants and two sports bras), and will wear the previous day’s t-shirts to work out in.


These faux fur mules are perfect to slip on and wander around the property in. I’ll wear my favorite Nicholas Kirkwood heels for the evenings, and my running shoes for…well, runs.


Dagne Dover just sent me this gorgeous crossbody bag, and I’m obsessed with it. It’s ideal for carrying my essentials for the drive, and it’s a great evening bag once the strap is removed.

Not shown

My idea of a relaxing vacation is to read as much as humanly possible. In addition to my Kindle, I’m also bringing this book and this one. I’m also bringing these bath salts, my favorite face mask and oil, and this body scrub.

Just one more sleep until Glenmere. I. Can’t. Wait.
