I’m not ready for the Memorial Day weekend. I don’t think I will ever be so-called ready: my body is able, yet my skin is pale. But let’s forget the beach and BBQ for a minute, let’s embrace what Memorial Day weekend is all about. What to pack, why of course! My best intentions are to pack a carry-on no matter where I’m headed, so unless you’re headed to Aspen for some skiing where they have a 53-inch snow base, my gut tells me to pack light. Whether you’re headed to see friends and/or family, here are some reasons why you should pack less.
I don’t like stuffing my clothes into a tiny suit case. I don’t like wrinkled clothing. I don’t like arriving at my destination to learn that nothing I have brought with me works under the circumstances I am in.
I propose that you pack only the bare minimum of your closet and shop at your destination. It’s best to escape with some new stylish travel pieces from around the globe. Or shop the sales.
Regardless of where you’re celebrating Memorial Day, the official start of summer deserves some sartorial fanfare. With this in mind, I’ve culled my best outfit for barbecues, beach parties, boat trips or a picnic in the park. Throw in a pair of denim duds, a jacket for evening, and a pair of heels. As if you needed any convincing, here goes.
Melissa Odabash dress // topshop fedora // charlotte olympia tote // verizon wireless jawbone up // supergoop and more goop // j. crew beach towel // a good book // saint laurent sunnies // and what’s got to be my favorite sandals of the season, by Chloe.
Happy Shopping to wherever your destination may be!
