Memorial Day weekend is just days away now and whether you're heading to the beach or backyard barbecue one thing is certain, packing should not be a chore.  Today I've picked out some of the must-have items I'm getting ready to toss in my bag for the next few days.  Since I love options, I always make sure to pack easy items that mix and match with little effort.  Fun little beach dresses and rompers are always perfect for casual fun in the sun time.  These two (here and here) are definitely coming with me.  
Keeping cover under the sun is also always tops on my list.  This J. Crew fedora is perfect for that.  It's just so cute and chic and easy to wear, I love it!  A pair of great sunnies, floral two-piece and easy sandals or flip-flops take me everywhere I want to go.  Later, when it's time to pretty-up a bit, I can easily find all my favorite makeup items in an adorable cosmetics clutch like this charming little one from Kate Spade.  Don't forget to pack the camera (this little pink one has my eye) and a denim jacket for cool night breezes.  Ok, who's ready to kick off summer? So am I!

Wishing you a beautiful Wednesday….thanks so much for reading!
