Summer Travel Bag finds for summer fashion - what to pack on a weekend trip. An article from the House of Inverness Blog


The arrival of this summer season is particularly joyful as the post-pandemic world begins to reopen. After spending such extensive time at home, visiting a lovely bed & breakfast a few towns over feels like a thrilling novelty! 

We’ve curated a few things we’d love to tuck in our travel bags as we venture into the summer sunshine with fresh perspective and light hearts.

  1. Organic Cotton Cardigan Sweater: Nothing spoils an experience for me faster than realizing I’ll be spending the next couple hours shivering! Having a light sweater on hand is essential for wandering a chilly museum or fending off a brisk evening breeze while dining al fresco.

  2. Sun Signet Ring: Claus Jewelry offers some truly lovely engraved collections, and their signet rings are a particular favorite of mine. This sun design would be such a fitting piece to commemorate memory making in the sunny days ahead!

  3. Rae Playdress: I love the sunny floral print on this dress. It could easily be taken from daytime into the evening with a quick swap of footwear.

  4. Kiera Mule Sandal: These braided leather sandals give off beachy vibes and the block heel makes them comfortable enough to enjoy a leisurely after-dinner stroll.

  5. Lux Chain Link Necklace: I like to select jewelry in a single finish when packing to give myself flexibility to mix and match pieces throughout my trip. I think the heavier weight of this necklace would be a nice complement to layer into my existing collection of delicate gold chains and pendants.

  6. Whimsical Pajama Set: This charming sleep-set is delightfully soft and sure to lull you into a blissful dreamland long after your holiday concludes.

  7. Plim Soul Canvas Sneaker: A good pair of comfortable shoes are an absolute travel necessity. These classic white canvas sneakers feature an extra supportive footbed, granting you the freedom to set off on a day’s excursion free from the risk of tender feet cutting your adventures short.

  8. Carmen Shorts: These shorts make a darling addition to a vacation ensemble with their floral embroidery and dainty scalloped trim detailing.

  9. Whisper Cotton Rib-Crewneck Tee: You are sure to find several of these lightweight tees inside any travel bag I pack. They are great for layering, take up practically zero space in a suitcase and come in a rainbow of colors.

  10. Quilted Leather Crossbody Bag: When traveling, I prefer stylish yet practical crossbody bags I can throw over my shoulder, leaving my hands free to sample and explore.
