Our Memorial Day Essentials (Just Add Sunshine)
Trunk Archive

The transition from spring to summer in New York involves cool mornings and evenings with sweltering heat sandwiched in between. Yet, I am shortening the hemlines and removing the jackets earlier and earlier each year. Sunshine and bodies of water are the only things that can coax the city out of its air-conditioned apartments; weekend trips to coastlines and swimming pools are imminent. Ahead, we’ve rounded up all the essentials you may need for your Memorial Day Weekend getaway, whether you're going near or far.


It's nearly impossible not to daydream of the beach while sitting at a desk all week, but why not dress (and shop) like you're somewhere a little more exciting? Leaning into the white linen and opened-toe shoes will put a little extra pep in your step as you await this week's summer Friday.

When the summer glow is still a work in progress, you have to fake it till you make it. Finding beauty products that can take you from the beach to the office is easier said than done, but it starts with a bit of glow and a dangerously good at-home blowout.

Daily essentials can change quite a bit in the summer months. Luckily, cultivating the perfect vibe isn’t complicated when the sun is out. A chill playlist and your new favorite tote make trips to the local park feel (almost) as good as a trip to a tropical island.
