What to Pack for a Memorial Day Getaway

May 21, 2015

Do you have a Memorial Day getaway planned? Tomorrow night, Dan and I are meeting up with our good friends and driving to Dayton, Ohio for a wedding. We’ll be there for the long weekend (which makes the drive a little easier to swallow), and I’m looking forward to a few days out of the city while catching up with friends we haven’t seen in a long time.

On Saturday, we’re hoping to explore Dayton a bit, and then the wedding celebration is on Sunday. So, what to pack for a getaway weekend that includes a casual day of adventure and a wedding? Here are some items I have in mind…

What to Pack for a Memorial Day Getaway

1. An easy weekender bag (currently 30% off) with a smart bottom pocket for your shoes. (I have a version of this bag that’s great for overnights and day trips.)

2. A cami dress that’s cute dressed down with white sneakers or dressed up with…

3. Sexy heeled sandals for dinner and drinks.

4. A lovely cuff (on sale for $33!) to add a bit of sparkle.

5. Another perfect accessory: rosy lips. This balm is perfect for anytime.

6. The perfect spring cover up: short-sleeved sweatshirt. The olive color is also lovely.

7. A cool Panama hat to wear while strolling along city streets.

8. A delicious smelling hair mist that doubles as a perfume with essential oils of lavender and sage for a calming aroma.

9. Ripped white jeans because it’s Memorial Day weekend! And they look effortless with that grey t-shirt and those brown sandals.

10. Pretty flat sandals–currently only $27! Also love this demi-wedge pair that would be comfy to wear to a wedding.

11. Drapey t-shirt for a casual brunch date. I have this exact shirt and love it.


What do you always pack for weekend getaways?
