Memorial Day Weekend Essentials
Memorial Day marks the beginning of picnics, outdoor toys, long days in the sunshine, and all things summer. Whether you're heading to the beach, pool or BBQ, get ready for your best Memorial Day weekend with these essentials.
Loading up on a high SPF means you can have fun in the sun without burning and being uncomfortable the entire weekend. Plus you're helping reduce the damage to your skin. Just be sure to reapply every few hours if you're going in the water. Some sunscreens smell so good you can use them as your signature summer scent and others have glitter for a shimmering look.
Wind and weather can really dry out lips. Remember to toss a lip balm or two into your bag to keep your lips moisturized all weekend. Pick a fun shade and flavor to customize your look and experience. You can even make your own using common kitchen supplies. Check out Style Me Pretty's easy step-by-step tutorial to make lip balm in the microwave.
Pack versatile clothing to save space in your weekend bag. Find a beach cover-up that can also be worn as a sundress. You can wear it to lunch, while walking on the boardwalk, or while running around on the beach enjoying the weather.
Even if the temperature is warming up, there are still some breezy days and chilly nights. Keep a cute cardigan in your travel wardrobe so you can slip it on when you're heading out after sunset or hanging out on the beach.
Bring a cute hat along to protect your face and enhance your outfit. There are so many affordable choices in so many styles that you're sure to find one to fit your look and personality. You can even dress up a plain hat with a cute ribbon or brooch.
Having a good pair of sunglasses on hand can mean the difference between squinting throughout the party and enjoying the sunshine with everyone else. Not only will the sunglasses protect your eyes, but they can also accent your style. Pick the best pair for your face shape using this handy guide.
Be prepared for every day of vacation with a collection of bathing suits. Bringing one is necessary, but you can pack a couple to really have fun mixing and matching to curate a new style every day.
