working for the (long) weekend

memorial day weekend


The long weekend is almost here, you guys! My sister's high school graduation is on Sunday, and right after, my family, James and I will be heading up to Lake Geneva for some R&R lakeside. New Glarus beer, here I come. 

I've learned over the years to pack minimally for a long weekend. I like to stick to tried-and-true basics - chinos and white jeans with easy tanks and a jean jacket. Sunglasses, a scarf, a pair of comfortable shoes, and a crossbody are all I need accessories-wise. 

What do you wear on a long-weekend getaway?

white tank || khaki green chinos || jean jacket || sunnies || scarf (sold out, try this)

crossbody || boat shoes || printed tank || white jeans


  1. These are some cute items. I'd probably go with something similar and easy to wear--shorts and a loose fitting shirt and some lace up boots that are good for walking. :)

    1. Lace-up boots are a solid option. Thanks for stopping by. :)

  2. I love that denim jacket. So soft, so comfortable, I want to live in it. Enjoy the holiday!

    1. The jacket's a keeper for sure. I hope you had a good holiday!
