You’re not going to be stuck behind a desk for a few days, hooray! Remember when you were a kid and your mom gave you a PB&J sandwich and you were out the door for hours? Yeah, that’s not going to work this holiday weekend. Whether or not you’re traveling, you’re going to need more than a sammie if you’re sitting in the sun-besides sunnies, iPod and book, right? Well, here’s a few other items you might want to add to your fun in the sun list.

1. The Sak floral satchel ($59, zappos.com). Stick everything you need in this big bag.
