I am all about holidays! There is just something about everyone coming together for a holiday. Memorial Day is one holiday I always look forward to, not just because it’s a long weekend. I love how everyone comes together and how we spend the day remembering and honoring those who have been lost serving our great country. That community, the friendships, the memories, and honoring those who died to keep us safe is such a special and memorable day!
With Memorial Day it always comes with different events to celebrate those lives. Whether it be a barbecue, a brunch, a formal event, a day at the lake telling stories, or just a small get together with friends. I find it so important to be together during this holiday and to celebrate the true meaning of the holiday, it is so much more than just hanging out with friends.
We have regularly talked about the armed services with our son, he grasps as much as a five year old can, what a difficult task these men and women are faced with. He recently told us he wants to join the army when he’s all grown up. We live close to an Air Force Base and he is always in awe of those men and women. So this year besides spending time with friends, we will be honoring those lost with a special prayer and lighting a candle in their honor. Something small but so significant for how grateful we are for them.
Now fashion and what to wear is not the reason to celebrate Memorial Day but I wanted to throw together a couple of fun outfits for those individuals that are going to be attending any events throughout the weekend. These outfits would also be great for the Fourth of July! I decided to stick with red and white this year for Memorial Day and put together two outfits, one casual and one that could be dressed up. At the bottom of this page will be the links to purchase all of the items featured!
I absolutely love this cute breezy blouse from Vici! It is lined in the front, and so comfortable for a day at the lake, at a barbecue, or a small get together with friends at home. I paired it with some high waisted denim from American Eagle, some cute sandals from The Gilded Feather Boutique and of course the bag, from Target, I am currently obsessing over!

Ok….I am going to brag about this dress. It’s perfect in every shape and form! The ruffle details on the sleeve have me swooning and I love how thick the fabric is! You don’t need a slip, it is breathable, it has pockets, and don’t get me started on those beautiful stripes, it’s my favorite dress of all time! It’s darling! Dress it up with some cute scalloped wedges like the ones I’m wearing from Bloom and Flourish Boutique or dress it down with some sandals or white tennis shoes. Possibilities are endless with this dress! It is currently sold out, but join the restock waitlist! It’s worth it I promise!
