This Is How We’re Doing Memorial Day Long Weekend
Is it just us or are we all in serious need of a little getaway? Thankfully, Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner and summer weekends aren’t far behind. It’s the perfect time to round up the ladies for a dreamy, lowkey and stylish (obviously) vacation. Put the laptop away, book the babysitter (or dog sitter) and just escape. Whether your getaway entails driving upstate or heading down the road to your friend’s house (with a pool), we’ve got your packing list covered. But this is not your typical t-shirt, cut-offs and slides list. This is something so much better. With the help from our friends at Either, And, we’ve created the Carrie Bradshaw of packing lists.
Think vibrant pleated silk pieces, a retro gingham matching set, swimwear that looks better out of the pool, and sunglasses that will make you feel so effing chic. Follow along our fantasy-turned-reality Memorial Day weekend getaway as actual BFF’s Olivia and Alexes show us how it’s done at Hasbrouck House in the historic hamlet of Stone Ridge, NY.
After driving two hours from the city (make that three and a half with the snack stops) you finally arrive in paradise. No more city smells, just fresh air with the warmest of breeze. Après car ride stretch necessary.
Number one getaway rule: no laptops, no phones. Okay, phones for IG stories and pictures only. We're throwing it back to simple childhood games all weekend long.
If you need us, we'll be by the pool all day with a stack of new books, frosé and snacks, of course.
Brb going for a dip. This pool is too nice not to take a swim. Plus, it's the only way to survive the east coast heat.
Did someone say 5 o'clock? Looks like it's time to switch to vino and have a dinner party for two.
