Sometimes the best weekend trips are the ones where you stay within the confines your own town or city. Also known as staycations, these localised excursions allow you to rediscover your own turf as if seeing it through a new set of eyes. Think a quick getaway to a swanky seaside hotel located just miles from where you normally sleep. Or a surprise romantic dinner at an expensive restaurant one quick cab ride away. Of course, whether going near or far, you’ll want to dress well and accessorise for the occasion. Here’s what to wear and bring on your next staycation weekend.
Filson Small Duffel Bag
Ideal for weekend getaways, the Filson Small Duffel Bag pairs resilient canvas construction with a leather trim and brass hardware. The bag includes a snap-down storm flap for inclement weather conditions, and two internal pockets. Indeed, if you can’t fit a two-day staycation’s worth of stuff inside this bag, then you’re probably missing the point.
