A long weekend is the perfect chance for a mini getaway, and Memorial Day weekend just begs for a trip to the beach. That means packing up your cutest ensembles and heading out of town to the beach, the countryside, or just to visit with family and friends. If you’re having trouble packing, don’t fret, we have just the right outfits at Mint boutique for you to take on your weekend getaway. Packable pieces from Veronica M clothing as well as patriotic picks by classic Susana Monaco will get you prepared for every instagrammable moment of the weekend. Easy pieces for the beach, backyard parties, dinner out, and everything in between will get you through the weekend in casual chic style. Try fun trends like lace up, strapless, halters, and versatile maxi dresses this upcoming holiday weekend to step up your style game as we head into warmer summer weather.
We always recommend Veronica M pieces for taking with you on your travels, because her signature fabrics fold up really small and don’t ever wrinkle! Imagine that, a dress you can throw into your suitcase and not have to worry about because it will come out just as silky smooth as it went in! No more having to fret about wrinkles when you travel with Veronica M, and this adorable lace up dress is a perfect pick for the upcoming long weekend. Available in several colorful prints, we particularly adore this chevron pattern in shades of rich blues. An easy sundress you can dress up or dress down, this mini is both fun and flattering for all of your summer adventures. The lace up detail adds a trendy touch to a classic shift style fit, while the bright summery print is both cheerful and chic making this dress a must have for your summer travels, and even your everyday wear! Take it to the beach as a cover up, or just as easily dress it for dinner with wedges and a denim jacket. We’re picturing a weekend spent lounging by the water in this dress with a big floppy hat, flip flops, and a nice cold drink all afternoon long… Now doesn’t that sound relaxing!
Since you will probably be attending a party or two over the holiday long weekend, we couldn’t go without suggesting an equally wrinkle-resistant party top to pair with your favorite jeans or shorts. This Veronica M halter tank is a best seller every year, and we’re obsessing over this gorgeous 2017 floral print! Florals are always in style, but the flowery print is particularly hot this season, and we love this cute top for spring and summer occasions. The deep navy background looks great with jeans while a fun floral print brightens things up. The v-neck halter has a plunging neckline for a flirty feel that can be tied higher or lower to fit your comfort. The crossover front and loose fit make this top flattering on everyone, and a perfect pick for a weekend party or a night out. Toss it into your suitcase this upcoming long weekend for a no-wrinkle travel friendly piece that will stand out.
Since the Memorial Day holiday is in honor of those who have served our country, a patriotic approach to outfit packing seems appropriate. Try a gorgeous red maxi dress, like this Susana Monaco strapless stunner for a breathtaking look in one of our flag’s honored colors. The hi low hem shows off your shoes and gives the dress a bit of flounce that breathes life into the simple silhouette. A clean, strapless neckline dresses up this simple frock, and the show stopping fiery red hue ensures that this dress won’t go unnoticed. Red is a the color of confidence, and wearing this sexy and sophisticated dress for a Memorial Day celebration will turn all the heads in the room. Pair it with heeled sandals and a delicate necklace to complete the simple yet stunning look.
Another dress to consider packing for the weekend’s festivities is this cobalt blue halter dress from Susana Monaco. A modest knee length with a sexy, strappy back and flowy skirt, this dress was made for outdoor parties, and the holiday weekend will surely oblige. The halter neckline shows off the shoulders and an open back provides a bit of skin in this rich blue hued midi, but the dress is also available in red for those who like to be daring. This patriotic blue dress is perfect for a sophisticated patio BBQ or a nice dinner at the local beachside restaurant, and anywhere else your weekend plans may take you. Wedges or heels will set the tone, while a handful of stacked bracelets or a pair of tassel earrings can add a touch of fun to this simple relaxed-chic dress.
The perfect piece to pack for traveling, near or far, is a versatile maxi dress, so don’t forget to pack at least one! No matter where you’re going or what events come up on your travels, a classic maxi is your best pick for everything from firework shows to drinks by the pool. This Veronica M cold shoulder maxi dress is classic and chic for any occasion the May long weekend can throw at you. Just slip on your favorite sandals and a swipe of lipstick and you’re ready to go.
