Planning a weekend full of stars, stripes and sunshine this Memorial Day? Hint: if you’re not, you should be. Because you’ll be clocking in some serious beach hours (right?!), keep the packing list to a handful of bikinis and a splash of accoutrement. It’s all you’ll really want to be wearing over the weekend anyway.
Read on for your brief guide to packing light (and right) for the holiday weekend…
*All-in-one Kaftan: wear it as a swim cover-up, flirty dress, or top layer for cooler temps. If you’re packing light, this is one essential that shouldn’t be left behind.

*White Sandals (yeah, they’re allowed).

*The Bag: A classic backpack is perfect for stashing your gear/beverages/extra bikinis for long beach days.

*The Travel Watch: This scaled down version of Nixon’s Unit makes a large impact when it comes to style. A bonus – it has a temperature gauge so you’ll know when it’s time to break out the itty bitti (slightly) patriotic bikini.
