Woot woot! Memorial Day is coming up and that means it’s time for a long weekend, AND our engagement party! My mom has been planning this party for months, and we are super excited because all our favorite people are going to be there. So, I wanted to give you guys a little peek inside my suitcase to see what I’m packing for a weekend at the lake.
I’m probably packing way more outfits than most people, but that’s because one, I’m an over-packer. Always. It never fails I end up bringing more stuff than I need. Two, I wanted to have a cute outfit for all the different meals! I know…I’m crazy.
So, here’s what I’m bringing:

The Swimsuit Ensemble
I have been looking for a new swimsuit for this summer, and I found this ensemble at Old Navy and I am obsessed. First off, I’m really loving the palm print. One-piece swimsuits are also trending right now, and they are super flattering so I thought I would give it a try. We are planning on going boating and tubing and doing all kinds of fun stuff like that leaving no room for wardrobe malfunctions or tugging on my swimsuit all day. I thought a tankini would be a good option to have and I can mix and match it with other swimsuit bottoms I have. I LOVE this cover up so much. I feel like this whole look feels like something you could wear at a resort and look totally chic. Especially with the big sunhat. I love these hats with the little quotes on them. I think they are so cute and playful. Plus, they are good for keeping the sun off your face because too much sun is just so bad for your skin. I can’t wait to style this look for you guys.
I found these off the shoulder tops at TJ Maxx, and I am so excited to wear them with these shorts my mom gave me! It’s going to be so cute for lunch or brunch, or even for a night time look in case it cools off when the sun goes down. The printed top has these cute little pom pom details on it and it’s going to be super fun and festive. Of course I’m bringing my go-to wedges: the Jaylen wedge by Steve Madden. I originally bought the black pair and I fell in love with them. I stopped by DSW on a whim the other day and turns out they had the cognac color in my size, so I HAD to get them because these are the best wedges, y’all! I’m obsessed. They are my favorite shoes I’ve bought for the season. They are going to be so cute with these shorts. PS, I found this straw fedora hat at Wal-Mart?! Isn’t it the cutest?! I’m so excited to rock it with the white top and khaki shorts. It just goes to show you do not have to spend a lot to look stylish. (I tried to find a link for you guys, but it looks like it’s in-store only.)
| Embellished Sandals, Naughty Monkey |
Maxi dresses are a must for summer. Period. They are so flowy and comfy. You can just throw them on with some comfy sandals, you’ll look amazing, and it’s a totally effortless look, on your part. This Palm Leaf Maxi I ordered from VICCI was a struggle to get. I kept going online to buy it and it kept selling out! I finally was able to buy it and it felt like such a success! I’m not even kidding I felt like my adrenaline was flowing when I was finally able to add this to my cart and check out! 😂 I also found this super fun floral print maxi dress that will be really cute for a dinner one night! I’m loving the soft fabric and how tropical this print is. Perfect for a little weekend getaway. This one is also super flattering since it’s black, and it’s also really budget friendly.
Now, it’s time to hit the road!
I’m very excited to spend some time on the lake with our friends and family to celebrate our engagement. It’s going to be the BEST weekend. Best part: I’m going to get to see my besties from college! It’s going to be a ton of fun! So, that’s what I’m packing for a weekend at the lake. Stay tuned because I’m going to spill all the details in next week’s post, plus all my outfits for the weekend! Stay tuned, you guys!
