Pack like a pro: 15 Memorial Day must-haves


Memorial Day weekend is inching closer and closer, and we know everyone is excited for a three day vacation. While there's plenty of good times to be had in the very near future, mostly involving backyard barbecues and beach vacations, we must admit that the long weekend is a difficult occasion to pack for. It's not a week and it's not an overnight trip, so while there's no excuse to pack your entire wardrobe, you can't exactly skimp either.

There are few must-haves we'll certainly be keeping in mind as we pack our bags for the holiday weekend. Comfortable, roomy separates like printed shorts and tanks, a straw tote, comfortable slip-on loafers, and a lightweight jacket (Remember: it's not actually summer yet!), are all on our list.

We've gone ahead and done a little pre-shopping, so all you have to do is click through the gallery to see what you'll need this Memorial Day weekend.
