Aw... got to love the summer. This past weekend I got to live through my roommate's exciting love life and helped her pack for a romantic weekend getaway. I thought it over and I realized the best way to keep it simple and stress free is to pack light, but well. "Well" meaning bringing a sexy, comfy teddy to sleep in and a bombshell maxi dress at night with some sandals that can amplify the simplest outfit. From my past experiences, every time I pack too much I can’t decide what to wear and make the mistake of taking too long to get ready. When it’s a weekend getaway it’s crucial to make every minute of the weekend count because it will fly by.

So, my number one item to take with you on a romantic weekend getaway is a sexy nighty. Why sleep in anything that's less than uber sexy? There is a way to be comfortable and absolutely hot in Venus.com’s adorable Semi-Sheer Nightgown. Whether you decide to be a sultry goddess in the black lace nighty or the cream colored one you’ll be sleeping like a sexy angel.

If that’s not enough to make your date swoon and leave him yearning to plan more weekend getaways, wait till he sees you looking stunning in a V-Neck Halter Jersey Dress. This bombshell dress from Victoria's Secret is a floral explosion with its huge, bright exotic flowers. You’ll be strutting around with a dress that will accentuate even the slightest tan with its turquoise, orange, white, and purple flower petals. My favorite part about bringing a dress like this along is that its fast and easy-- you throw it on and, voila, you look like a thousand bucks. It is fit to perfection with an empire waist and best of all it can be worn with a pair of sexy sandals so you can stroll anywhere without complaining about your feet.

Wondering what kind of sexy sandals you can wear? Well I’ve got that covered. Mystique 1644 sandals are one of my absolute favorites. Yes, they are a little pricey, but they are gorgeous. The leather thongs with ornate large yellow stones make this shoe a knock out with anything you wear. You can go without wearing heels for a whole month because these spiced up pair will replace most high stunners any day. Keeping your feet callous free and comfortable is a definite must when on a weekend getaway trying to keep high on the impression scale.
