6 Essentials for Your Memorial Day Weekend Getaway

The Memorial Day weekend countdown is officially on! Now that we’re within the 10 day mark, it’s time to start thinking about what to pack for your upcoming weekend getaway. Since MDW is really the unofficial start of summer, I’ve handpicked six essentials to make sure that you’re starting the next season off with a seriously stylish bang. Click on the icons below to shop.

Tassel earrings: Tassels are definitely this season’s accent of the moment. These knotted tassel earrings will bring some movement and a fun, carefree vibe to your MDW #ootds.

Straw clutch: While straw has typically been reserved for beach bags in past seasons, this year has brought cross-bodies and clutches in this quintessential summer textile. This large clutch crafted from a mix of woven straw and gold-tone thread is big enough to stash all of your essentials for a night out – and as a bonus, has a hideaway chain strap if you want to turn it into a cross-body.

Striped jumpsuit: A loose, lightweight jumpsuit is an easy look for transitioning from the beach straight into happy hour. The cropped, wide-leg silhouette is my favorite shape of the moment, and a tie belt nips in at the waist to make this piece super flattering.

Leather sandalsNeutral, flat leather sandals are a summer must-have. I love the braided detail and cross-straps at the ankle, which bring some added oomph to this pair. These babies will be equally perfect with a dress (or the above jumpsuit!) for a casual dinner look as they’ll be with a cute OTS top and cutoffs for daytime.

Scalloped one-pieceYou’ll be looking white hot in this scalloped one-piece from Kate Spade New York. It mimics the look of the Marysia scalloped swimwear that you’ve probably been seeing everywhere over the past year or so, but at less than half the price (you’re welcome!).

White cutoffsTrue life: I’m addicted to my One Teaspoon ‘Bandit’ cutoffs, which I own in both a light denim wash and in black. Since MDW is officially the weekend to start wearing white denim, I recommend this ‘Worn White’ pair. Throw them on with a swimsuit and flip flops for the beach, or pair them with wedges and a cute top for going out – you can’t go wrong.
