What are you planning for Memorial Day Weekend? Does it include a family or friend weekend filled with sun, fun and lots of frozen drinks with paper umbrellas? I’ll be graduating from university on Saturday so a fun-filled weekend is necessary. Whether you are just escaping to read in the sun (the French translation for a summer read is a “read for the beach”) or to party with your friends, there are tons of new accessories to help you get by.
There are a few books that have been on my reading list, such as Diane Von Furstenberg’s book, “The Woman I Wanted to be” and, a classic, “Tender is the Night” by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I honestly bring at least one book and a few magazines whenever I travel. I like options and it’s always good to have them by the beach, pool or just cozy weekend in.
Now on to the fun stuff… This article (although a little old) from Vogue will help everyone find the perfect bikini style for every body type while feeling envy of the Kardashian vacations… I have been trying one-pieces lately and try to wear mostly black with prints! I am always obsessed with new beach cover-ups also such as these from Wildfox– they could be worn by the sea or for out at night! If you guys also need swimwear advice, check out Revolve Clothing’s new partnerships with some bloggers and A Bikini A Day experts, Tash and Dev. Don’t forget they have a work out series with Self Magazine that is great, along with Karenna & Katrina’s bikini series. Check out their new BTS video of the bikini series in Turks and Caicos. I don’t know about you guys, but I always start a routine and then fall off of it right before the holiday weekend, so I am happy with any exercise that I get by with.
I haven’t been forgetting a hat now that I’m trying to take better care of my skin, especially since I get a mere three new freckles each time I step outside. I would choose a cute baseball hat or a woven or straw floppy hat. I love Henri Bendel’s new accessories for the summer. And, don’t forget your beach bag! I usually carry around a cute tote (from shopping excursions and goodie bags from old internships) or I reuse the Free People shopping bags. Don’t forget all of your ingredients for your favorite mixed drink, floaties
