Each week for The DuJour 5×5, we ask five editors five questions on a different topic. This week’s installment centers on Memorial Day weekend: Read on for our plans, our playlists and how we make the ultimate warm weather call: to wear white pants or not to wear white pants?

1. My Memorial Day weekend itinerary: Fishing, golfing and biking in Nantucket, MA.

3. The ultimate summer BBQ playlist must include the following 3 songs: “Summertime,” by DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince, “Hot in HeRRe” by Nelly and “Beat this Summer” by Brad Paisley.
4. White pants before Memorial Day: DO! There is a white for every season.

1. My Memorial Day weekend itinerary: STAYCATION. I love the city on summer weekends. I will be: taking advantage of shorter waits for brunch, escaping to Lavalette beach for the day and perfecting my sangria recipe to test out at friends’ BBQs.
2. I plan on eating something I make myself, for once, drinking at least one Negroni al fresco andwearing as little makeup as possible.
3. The ultimate summer BBQ playlist must include the following 3 songs: “White Nights” by Oh Land,  “Hunter” by Pharrell and “Weekend Love” by Queen Latifah.
4. White pants before Memorial Day: Do!
5. I know it’s officially summer when TAN. LINES.

1. My Memorial Day weekend itinerary: Making several gallons of horchata, grilling on my friend’s roof and just being outdoors as much as possible.
2. I plan on eating all day, drinking beer and spiked horchata and wearing tube tops, jean shorts and Soludos.
3. The ultimate summer BBQ playlist must include the following 3 songs: “Red Red Wine” by Bob Marley, “The Boys of Summer” by The Ataris, “What’s Luv?” by Fat Joe featuring Ashanti.
4. White pants before Memorial Day: DO.
5. I know it’s officially summer when five-day work weeks seem undoable.

1. My Memorial Day weekend itinerary includes copious relaxation, the finishing of several books and an above-average amount of napping.
2. I plan on eating, drinking and wearing terribly summery things that I haven’t yet planned out.
3. The ultimate summer BBQ playlist must include the following 3 songs: The Go-Go’s “Vacation,” The Ramones’ “Oh Oh I Love Her So” and Dolly Parton’s “Don’t Drop Out”
4. White pants before Memorial Day:  Definitely a do.
5. I know it’s officially summer when New York turns into a ghost town Fridays at noon.

1. My Memorial Day weekend itinerary: Surfing in St. Barth’s.
2. I plan on eating fresh seafood and french fries (which I might be inclined to call “pommes frites” since I’ll be on French territory), drinking an unhealthy amount of rosé, and wearing lots of white, paired with this[1] blood orange lip color.
3. The ultimate summer BBQ playlist must include the following 3 songs: “Do It Again” by Rökysopp & Robyn, my personal choice for song of the summer; a classic, “Dancing in the Dark” by Bruce Springsteen; and something gratuitous yet important: “Summertime,” by DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince.
4. White pants before Memorial Day: Major do. I actually think winter white is the chicest kind.
5. I know it’s officially summer when New Yorkers (myself included) start looking a little less cranky and miserable.
