It’s my favorite time of year. Finally! I’m ready for some long, lazy afternoons at the shore. My Kindle is loaded up with some fun beach reads (including a book with the longest title you can imagine: The Mad Boy, Lord Berners, My Grandmother and Me: An Aristocratic Family, a High-Society Scandal and an Extraordinary Legacy by Sofka Zinovieff. Phew!). If the waves are good, I hope to get in a little body-surfing. If not, I’ll just drag my beach chair down to the water’s edge and let my feet dangle. I’m definitely looking forward to some steamers and corn-on-the-cob washed down with a glass of rosé! I’ve updated my weekend wardrobe with a few fun, very affordable finds, like the Zara caftan above ($70; zara.com). Nothing costs more than $100, and many of the items cost much less. Life is good!

The trick to effortless weekend packing is to pick a few colors and stick to them. My go-to choice is usually navy or white with a few colorful accents or accessories. Everything works together. You always need to think about the activities you have planned—whether sporting or social—and be prepared for changes in the weather … This easy capsule wardrobe should have you covered, whatever the weekend brings.
