Memorial Day Weekend is a federal holiday for feeling patriotic, spending time with family and friends and taking FULL advantage of that extra day out of office. It’s one of those casual, carefree holidays where anything goes, but we’ve got a list of staples you’ll need for MDW 2017!
A Chic Sneaker
Footwear is especially important during an active weekend like Memorial Day weekend. We’re looking for anything with comfort that doesn’t compromise style. Thank goodness for all those amaze sneakers we’ve been seeing this spring. Can’t decide on just one pair for the weekend? Try a classic sneaker with a twist!
A Light Weight Bag
It’s going to be an active weekend full of outdoor activities, and you don’t want to get stuck carrying that Mary Poppins week-day bag around. Plus, you will need both hands free – one for eating and the other for drinking, amirite? We recommend a cross-body bag or backpack that can transition from day to night.
One piece of versatile outwear will be the key! The sun might be shining all day, but it’s still the time of year when the sun goes down and you’re going to feel the chillll. Again, you will want something that can take you from day time activities to evening activities. We recommend any take on a denim jacket!
An Easy Outfit
A dress or a romper that is easy to put on and requires no mixing, matching or thinking! Pairs well with a cute sneaker, denim jacket and backpack? Definitely!
Let’s be honest, these will likely be the focal point of every Insta photo of the weekend, so make it count!
A Fun Drinking Accessory
Because, why not? MDW is one of those holiday weekends where “drinking accessories” are considered totally socially acceptable.
A Mineral Sunscreen
It’s 2017, people. We’re all well aware of the damage the sun can cause. If you forget your sunscreen, we’re going to have a problem! Go for a mineral sunscreen to avoid any unnecessary chemicals.
