In Partnership with Barneys New York

Weekend plans? Me neither. Not that I am anti-social, nor am I disorganized, but my general lack of commitment to the summer is rearing its ugly head in an untimely manner, on what could possibly be called the biggest holiday weekend of the season. And as a result, I’ve got nothing on my agenda.

We’ve partnered with luxury retailer Barneys New York to give all the last minute planners out there a weekend to remember, and exactly what to wear to do it in style. Here’s the procrastinator’s guide to Memorial Day Weekend in NYC. 

 

New York Botanical Gardens The Procrastinator's Guide to Memorial Day WeekendGo see Visions of Hawaii, the latest exhibition at New York Botanical Gardens inspired by Georgia O’Keefe. Like Hawaii, NYBG is a balmy tropical getaway, just without the 10 hour flight. Channel your best Hawaii 5-0 in relaxed cottons and on-theme prints. PS, this is a weather friendly option should the sun not shine all weekend long.
