Stylist Ilaria Urbinati's genius guide to packing maximum style into a quick three day jaunt to a warm location.  Just in time for the warm weather to arrive in the Northeast (ahem, NYC & Boston please take note).

Everything You Need for a Warm-Weather Three-Day Getaway via DailyCandy
The Basics
3 pairs of socks
4 pairs of undies
2 bras (“I always stash one of my aunt Laura Urbinati’s bikinis — you can wear the top under tees.”)

The Pieces1 white button-up (“You can wear it long over jean shorts, as a bathing suit cover, or tied over your shorts or chinos.”)
2 tank tops
2 tees (“The Proenza Schouler ones are the best. They’re even cute to sleep in.”)
1 pair of chinos (“There are a million good pairs at J.Crew right now.”)
1 pair of skinny jeans
1 pair of denim cutoffs (“I love Double RL Vintage or Current/Elliott.”)
1 pair of shorts (cotton or linen)
1 long dress (“I wear my Daughters of the Revolution Butterfly dress in the city, the country, daytime, or dinner. It’s good for everything.”)
1 skirt
1 short dress
1 jacket (“Boy by Band of Outsiders blazer or a leather jacket from ASOS — pick your battles.”)
1 long cardigan
1 pair of sandals or espadrilles
1 pair of ballet flats (“Gap makes great ones you can toss in your carry-on.”)
1 pair of nude heels (“They go with everything and make your legs look crazy long.”)

The Extras 1 straw hat (“I wore a BCBGeneration boater — minus the bead embellishment — during my wedding weekend.”)
1 pair of sunglasses
1 scarf
Bracelets (“Made Her Think cuffs always make the right statement.”)
1 pair of stud earrings
1 pair of gold hoops (“Necklaces aren’t practical; they just get tangled up.”)

The Beauty
1 toiletry bag (“A neutral Bare bag doubles as a clutch.”)
Facial cleansing pads
Tinted moisturizer with sunscreen
Lip balm (“Dr Pepper Lip Smacker is heaven.”)
Blemish treatment (“Mario Badescu drying lotion never fails.”)
Toothbrush and toothpaste
Body lotion
Hair bands
1 scrunchie
1 headband
Shampoo and conditioner (“Nothing will ruin your weekend like a bad hair day.”)

The Baggage
1 day bag (“I don’t go anywhere without a Rebecca Minkoff M.A.C. Clutch.”)
1 nighttime clutch
1 large carryall
1 carry-on trolley (“I like to check my wheely bag and carry on the carryall — it’s faster to get through security this way, and the tote can double as a beach or grocery bag when you finally get where you’re going.”)
