Few things soothe the soul like time spent in the great outdoors. One of our favorite kinds of getaways is a trip to a cozy cabin somewhere where the air is crisp and smells like pine. All it takes is a few minutes perusing Airbnb and a quick group text to pull together the perfect girl’s weekend away from the city, or idyllic solo trip if that’s more your vibe.
Some weekends, getting off the grid just isn’t possible. For those weekends, we love these recommendations from Free People. These items make both the perfect cozy travel companions when you make your way into mother nature’s arms — and can transport your senses to that serene place your wild heart craves while at home or on an urban hike. Turn off your phone, draw up a bath and lean into the bliss of cabin-inspired self-care…
