Summer Getaway Must-Haves

’Tis the season for quick weekend getaways. So we asked local boutique owners what must-haves should make the cut when packing a carry-on bag or oversized tote.



“A cotton floral dress—they’re easy to pack and they look great during the day with flip-flops or at night with a sandal. Also, a white cotton T-shirt—perfect with cargo shorts during the day or trouser jeans at night.”  
Julie Pisani
Owner of Dobbs Ferry’s Industry Boutique

“Definitely a jute-sole flat espadrille in assorted colors to be paired with anything from cropped jeans to a sundress.”
Susan Martin
Owner Ruby Sue in Katonah

“A crossover body bag and a knitted or crocheted cardigan—they’re fun, feminine, and lacey—and they pack well.
Louisa McTurner
Owner of Weezie D in Bronxville and Rye

“A pair of flair jeans, a nude wedge, and a boho-chic peasant top for day, and a sexy sequined racer-back tank top and skinny jeans with a nude pump for night.”
Grace Diodati
Owner of Tru Grace in Armonk

“A very lightweight cashmere wrap because, even though it’s summer, it can get cool in the evening or with air conditioning. Also, a lace top—lace is very big this summer.”
Ellen Grad,
Owner of EB Barrett in Larchmont

“A white eyelet cotton dress, white and black T-shirts, cropped jeans, and a silk tank dress.”
Angela Guitard,
Owner of Angela’s in Rye
