Denizens of NYC set their wanderlust on Big Sur for the Memorial Day holiday thanks to a beautifully crafted packing list from the fashion folks at The Cut, NYMag's fashion blog. We're loving the picks—especially the Proenza Schouler Sleeveless Trapeze Dress and the Illesteva Frida Sunglasses—that would look great against the backdrop of giant redwoods and blue skies. Lucky for us, Big Sur is in our backyard, and no excuse of a holiday is needed to go for a romp. Just remember to pack layers into that rucksack and to wear sturdy shoes—that Spring Trail hike down to hidden waterfalls truly is no joke. Esther Hahn
