It’s time to power down your laptop, pack a duffel, and hit the road because you are officially OOO. In this series, we’ll explore all the fabulous fashions you need to wear when you *actually* disconnect from your nine to five.
Connecticut is only a few hours from NYC, but it's a world away from the sun-seeking Hamptons fashion crowd. In search of a late summer retreat
, we headed north to check out the Delamar
West Hartford, a luxurious spa in a spot that's a legit under-the-radar influencer hotspot (@pinterestingplans
, and @stylecusp
all live nearby). With cooling facials
and a farm-to-table lunch at the Artisan
in mind, we hopped on I-95 — but not without packing a bag full of the cool, comfy, and so-stylish must-haves we needed for a weekend that puts the ahhhhh in spa. (Photo via The Greenwich Hospitality Group)
Quip Electric Toothbrush ($25):
You can't leave home without your toothbrush, and this one is so sleek and thin, it slides right into the corner of your vanity case. P.S. The white holder flips around into a travel cover. Brilliant.
Hatch The Notched Blouse ($178):
Effortless is the word of the weekend, and it's the perfect descriptor for this breezy top. The wrinkle-free fabric and dolman sleeve make this a travel essential.
Sanuk Yoga Sling Cruz Malia ($60):
Easy on, easy off. This multi-purpose shoe has the comfort of a slipper, but channels chill beach style — no surprise since it was inspired by pro surfer Malia Manuel.
Krewe Prytania Sunglasses ($215):
You don't want to cause eye strain before you've even arrived, right? Don't hit the road without these sophisticated but way-beyond-basic sunnies.
Adina Reyter Hamsa Pendant Necklace ($485):
The Hamsa is a sign of good luck, good health, and good fortune — channel those good vibes all throughout your getaway weekend (and once you're back to the grind too!).
Calpak Vanity Case Milk Marble ($75):
All your favorite 1950s movie stars knew about the hard-shell vanity case. Channel their retro-glam style with this looker, which lets you pack your makeup safely on one side, beauty products on the other.
Eberjey Tulipan Romper ($111):
You'll want to sleep in this comfy cotton romper each night of your spa trip — and every night thereafter.
Cuyana Leather Travel Case Set ($110):
When you're an obsessive packer, this is where your bralettes and undies live. You don't have to unpack at the hotel, and everything stays neat and discreet.
AYR The Blush Pant ($285):
Can you say elastic waistband? Here's a luxury pant you can dress up and down and still feel good in after your incredible farm-to-table lunch.
Summersalt The Swan Dive Swimsuit ($95):
Just in case you venture off the highway en route (we love Jennings Beach and Pear Tree Point Beach!), you'll need your suit. A one-piece is always in style, and we love this sophisticated color-blocking.
