One of my favorite things about Mike’s profession (teacher) is all the time he has off during the summer. That plus my flexible schedule allows us to do more things during the day, explore our city on off days, and take extra long weekend stay-cations. Although it’s only an hour away, one of my absolute favorite stay-cations has to be to the city. There’s always new neighborhoods to explore, I love catching up with old friends and stopping in at our favorite eateries, and the views never get old.

With several mini San Francisco getaways planned this summer, I was so happy when I stumbled upon the perfect duffle bag at Target. Not only is it nautical and on-trend, but it’s the perfect size for two! Mike and I can easily pack two or three outfits plus two lightweight jackets.  Roomy, cute, and less than $35!

If you’re looking for a great weekender bag be sure to check out Target. They have some really great and affordable options.

Also, I’m excited to announce my partnership with Cosmic Cart, the universal shopping cart for the web. Cosmic Cart lets you buy items from multiple retailers without having to leave my site. When you see the Cosmic Cart icon in photos, click it to shop the look (in the first photo). Happy shopping!

    How GORGEOUS are the flowers around that doorway?! So, so stunning! I’m loving your weekender bag, too – I am in major need of one, I always end up bringing my little carry on suitcase but a cute duffle would be way better. I’ll have to take a trip to Target!

    The backgrounds that you chose to photograph with are amazing! I love the bright pop of red from the flowers and the architecture of the blue house.
