Memorial Day Weekend Must-Haves


Memorial Day weekend is just a week away and I came up with a packing list for all you last minute shoppers out there! If you’re wondering what to wear or bring to the beach I got you covered!

Now I know most of us do not think of buying clothes on Amazon, however, I am here to change that! We shouldn’t cross Amazon off our list when it comes to buying fashionable pieces. After all they have millions of sellers and you can find a lot of nice clothes and accessories for less than you would at a brick-and-mortor store.

Why shop on Amazon?

  • Millions of sellers and endless variety
  • Prime 2 Day Shipping vs. 1-2 weeks delivery from a regular retailer
  • Try clothes on in the comfort of your own home
  • Easy returns – if you’re unsatisfied with an item simply print out a label, stick it on the box and place it outside of your door. Amazon will pick it up with 24 hours.

Ladies, I have done the digging for you and made sure to find pieces that were shipped and sold Prime (2 day delivery) and had good reviews (4+ star rating). Below are my top 12 Memorial Day Must-Haves that I think will be perfect for next weekend and for you to enjoy all Summer long.

  1. Distressed Denim Shorts

High-waisted distressed denim shorts are a must-have this Summer! I keep seeing this trend posted everywhere on the internet, however, I am not about to pay $60+ on one pair of denim shorts. Amazon has some cute ones for under $20 and I will definitely be buying this pair.

  1. Palm Tree Leaf Printed Tank Top

I love the pattern on this tank top! It’s gives me all the beachy vacay vibes! Pair this top with a pair of distressed denim shorts. 

  1. Striped ¾ Bell Sleeve Off The Shoulder Front Tie Knot Blouse

This top shows three of Summer’s hottest trends right now: off the shoulder, bell sleeves and front tie knot blouse. I love the vertical stripes and how the off the shoulder part has an elastic band inside to make sure it stays put. Pair this top with high waisted shorts or distressed skinny jeans.

  1. Tassel Lace Beach Swimsuit Cover Up

The lace pattern is so pretty!! This will be the perfect bathing suit cover up for years to come. It comes in both white and black.

  1. Red & White Floral Swing Dress with Ruffle Straps

Who doesn’t love a swing dress!? This is perfect for any body type. I am obsessed with the color and print! I also love the ruffled straps which is so on trend right now!

  1. Sleeveless Striped Jumpsuit

When I saw this jumpsuit, I knew I had to add it to my list! This jumpsuit is super classy and not only perfect for Memorial Day Weekend, but is perfect for any Summer weekend. This is a great outfit to wear. I would pair this will a straw hat, straw bag and these espadrille sandals.

  1. Jack Rogers Georgica Jelly Thong Sandals

Jelly sandals are back and better than ever! These jelly sandals remind me of the Tory Burch sandals everyone is wearing but are way cheaper! Jack Rogers is a well-known affordable fashion shoe brand. These sandals come in a wide variety of colors which I love and they are cheap so you can buy more than one color!

  1. High-Waisted Self Tie Striped Linen Summer Shorts

This is another trend I am loving this year! High-waisted tie linen shorts! Pair these with a basic tank or simple blouse and you’ve got the look!

  1. Floral Embroidery Drawstring Summer Shorts –

Another pair of linen shorts I love! I really like the embroidery, scalloped edges and drawstring. I would pair this with a basic tank top. It’s a nice comfortable weekend look and perfect for beach days too.

  1. Pineapple Canvas Tote Bag with Rope Handle

Cute beach tote to carry all your day-at-the-beach essentials.  They also offer this tote in other designs with cactuses, tropical birds and tropical flowers.

  1. Off The Shoulder Ruffled Bikini Crop Top and High-Waisted Palm Tree Bottoms

This bikini is so pretty and is flattering on most body types! My favorite is this red one with the palm tree bottoms! If you go to the listing page, the seller offers more styles. I currently own the ‘Black Striped’ set and love it! If you’re looking for more bathing suits under $50, shop this link here

  1. Lushrobe Pink Pineapple Beach Towel

Love this pink pineapple beach towel! It’s made of premium ultra-soft fabric that is woven with 100% cotton from Turkey. What’s cool about this towel is that it is sturdy and double-layered and is reversible. This comes in multiple colors too!
