What to Pack for Memorial Day Weekend

Although I just came back from Jamaica and am thoroughly relaxed, I am looking forward to the 3-day holiday weekend.   I'm heading back to Oklahoma to see my family and my adorable niece and nephew for Memorial Day, but most of our time will be spent outside by the pool.  Here's what's on my packing list:

I'm a sucker for a good Target bikini.  I personally can't seem to justify the more expensive options like Agent Provocateur or Marysia because every summer I want a new look and it doesn't make sense to splurge on a swimsuit.  However, I am open to spending on cute, versatile summer pieces I can wear season after season like this loose Splendid number and Anthropologie's denim dress.  A cute beach tote seems to be the "it" beach accessory this year, as well as sun hats with cheeky sayings.

Shop My Packing List:

Pepita Pom Tote $112/Denim Off-the-Shoulder Dress $119/Splendid Tie-Front Top $85/

J Crew Jean Shorts $29/Catrine Sunglasses $58/Canvas Espadrilles $55/Hypnose Waterproof Mascara $28/Flounce Bandeau Bikini Top $23 & Bottoms $20/Hamptons Magenta Towel $24/J Crew Panama Hat $55/

I posted this beach photo last week of my friend Grace and I in Jamaica.  We stayed at an all-inclusive resort and an overeager cameraman working for the resort kept walking around trying to take guest's pictures.  We both found it annoying but finally relented to allowing him to take a few snaps.  Well, the joke's on us because we ended up paying $16 for this 5" x 7" photo at the giftshop!  C'est la vie.  My point in telling you this story is because a few of our favorite summer essentials are pictured here:

My Sunnies are from Anthropologie and my bikini top is from Billabong.  I LOVE these sunglasses, in fact, they might be my favorite pair of all time.  My friend Grace is wearing the J Crew Panama Hat I shared above.

Do you have any big plans for Memorial Day?
