Memorial Day is fast approaching – what?!?! Since we basically skipped spring this year, it is hard to believe that the holiday that marks the beginning of summer is upon us. But upon us it is, so we are sharing a few Memorial Day weekend outfits for your holiday weekend get-togethers today!
Memorial Day Weekend Outfits: Casual Pool Gathering
Community pools traditionally open their season with Memorial Day, but as we all know (and are having a hard time accepting), many pools are not opening this year. That said, if you are one of the lucky ones that has a pool opening near you or a pool in your yard or a friend’s yard, a pool gathering is certainly on your agenda this coming weekend! One of our favorite looks for a pool gathering is a fun dress!
Dresses are cool, comfortable, and dry quickly, making them the perfect choice for a pool side gathering. Plus, you can look put together and still wear your swimsuit underneath if you choose to do so! We love this tunic style dress – you can roll the sleeves if it’s warm or let them down if not. Pair the dress with these fabulous clear studded sandals by Jessica Simpson. They are a tried and true poolside piece by several on our team – they can get wet and recover well. Keep your accessories simple. We love this line of all weather and water safe bracelet stacks by Buddha girl! Then add some pretty post earrings you don’t mind getting wet. And don’t forget a good pool bag to carry all of your necessities. We happen to love the Scout line of beach and pool bags!
Daytime Backyard BBQ Look
One of the most beloved Memorial Day traditions is the backyard BBQ with friends and family. Adults lingering around the table chatting, kids running around the yard, a table filled with yummy food…. In short, casual, comfortable fellowship with those we love the most. We love this floral tank blouse as an extremely versatile piece for your summer closet. Wear it untucked with skinny jeans…. half tucked with a denim skirt… or tucked in with these high waisted paperbag waist shorts. Add some cute sneakers and fun but simple earrings like these ombre raffia hoops, and grab your favorite jean jacket in case you plan to linger over the sunset!
Cool Lake Night Look
Many of us associate days soaking up the sunshine out on the lake – followed by a cool summer nights dining under the stars by candlelight – with Memorial Day weekend. For cooler temperatures, a good pair of white denim is a must.
We are loving the flare white denim trend we are seeing this spring and early summer – this pair is perfect to enjoy all summer long with most any top you own! For a dinner on the deck overlooking the lake, pair it with a feminine yet casual blouse like this blue striped one from Tuckernuck. We love this piece because it achieves many different vibes depending on how you choose to wear it – untucked for a looser fit, front tucked for a bit more structure, or tucked in to enjoy another big trend for this summer – the rope belt! This particular one adds a a pop of color and pattern. Add some fun statement earrings and sandals with a bit of heel, and you are put together and comfortable to linger over dinner and a cocktail.
As we approach this very special holiday celebrated by our country every year, we would like to offer our sincere and heartfelt thanks to those that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom…. And those that loved them the most!
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter the words, but to live by them.”
