#MDW Essentials

Guys… we are SO CLOSE to a long weekend, and the official (kind of) start of Summer! I’m rushing to get this post done so I can start packing… My brain is focused on the long weekend up ahead, and I bet yours is too!

Are you heading out of town this weekend?! Don’t waste any time stressing about what to pack… I did the hard work for you! Here are Memorial Day Weekend Essentials that you’ll need before you hit the beach this holiday weekend!

The Clothes

It’s not Memorial Day without a little Red, White and Blue! Pack pieces that you can mix and match to have the perfect outfit no matter where your weekend takes you. Think pieces with relaxed, summer vibes, like cutoffs, sun dresses and swimsuits. Throw in a boyfriend top and a cute hoodie for bon fires and you’ll have everything you need for a perfect MDW. What I’m Packing:

Denim Cutoffs  // Boyfriend Top  // Tank Top // Jean Jacket //
Sundress // One Piece // Sweatshirt

The Accessories

Top off your outfits with accessories that can go with all of your summer looks. Think of summer classics, like sunglasses, slides, hats and bandanas! (PS… I like to pick up summer accessories from inexpensive places like Target! They’re perfect for what I need, stylish, and I don’t feel bad when I ultimately leave my sunglasses or hat behind at the beach.) What I’m Packing:

Slides // Sunglasses // Packable Sun Hat // Bandanas //
Beachy Tote Bag // Baseball Cap //

The Beauty Routine

I have a pretty strict rule in not wearing much make up while I’m kicking off the first weekend of summer! If I put on any makeup, it’s usually just a tinted moisturizer/cc cream, a swipe of mascara and a few illuminating drops. (Or 12) For hair, beachy waves are key! Check out this post on how I get my beach waves, and the products I love! What I’m Packing:

Sunscreen // Lip Sunscreen // Tinted Moisturizer // CC Cream //
Waterproof Mascara // Illuminating Drops // Body Lotion

The Extras 

And of course, you can’t forget all the fun extras! Like a cute water resistant pouch, beach towels, pool floats, beach reads and a little something to keep your beer water cold.

Pool Pouch //  Beach Towel // Patriotic Pool Float //
A Beach Read // Drink Coozie

So my friends, what are you packing for this upcoming long weekend?! Don’t forget, you can get a lot of these items ON SALE right now! (Like JCrew is offering 40% off with the code “SHOP40”!) So be sure to click the links above!

Alright guys. I’ve gotta get my butt out of this recliner and get to work! I wish I could just sit and watch GMA all morning with my coffee and stroop waffles. Oh well… just one more day until the long weekend!

Have a wonderful #MDW everyone! I’ll be back on TUESDAY next week.
