As our daily routines continue to get busier every day, creating time to getaway for relaxation and sanity purposes is absolutely essential. Whether you're driving less than a few hours to the hamptons or flying to a small island a couple of hours from where you live, there is no doubt that sometimes, getting away gives you just the right amount of time to resuscitate.
Photographer, Mark Asuncion recently took a road trip to Saratoga, New York and below, he discusses his transitory essentials for the short term trip.
Upstate New York - Saratoga
The Essentials according to Mark Asuncion
1) Original Achilles Leather Sneakers
With limited luggage space, you want to make sure you have a a versatile pair of sneakers with you at all times. It can take you through the day and can even be worn with a clean dinner outfit.
2) Bomber Varsity Jacket
The weekend is for more relaxed looks. A bomber jacket is an easy wardrobe staple that can elevate any look.
3) Tenzing Skincare
It’s important to stay with your regimen no matter where you are to keep your skin in check. Tenzing is packed with only the purest ingredients, leaving you feeling refreshed and ready to conquer the weekend.
No matter where you go for your weekend out, it is always important to bring a suit. If you don’t need to wear the full ensemble, you can always break the pieces up and use them individually.
5) Phone / Charger
The last thing you want to have is a phone with low battery. If you’re spending the weekend outdoors, you might not always have access to an outlet - so a slim battery pack will be a lifesaver!
