Light a sparkler and get ready for some Memorial Day fun and some red, white and blue goodness! I’m so so excited about this post – mainly because I would love to have every one of these items in my closet. Pretty please? I didn’t realize until a few weeks ago, when I recently organized my closet after we moved, how much red, white and blue I have. I love the combination of blue and white, and often grab red items because they are so fun and vibrant, and go well with my blonde coloring. The stripes and gingham all around this season make me so happy too. My family jokes with me about constantly wearing stripes, and stripes take up a good chunk of my wardrobe, but hey, they are always in style. ;) I hold firm to my belief that you can never have too many stripes.
Now onto the clothes!
I started to write about my favorite dress out of these, but I am really having trouble deciding. I love them all! They would be so cute for a Memorial Day brunch, or a big Fourth of July celebration. The silhouettes of each of these dresses are so beautiful. I love the flutter sleeves on the first two and shirtdresses are always flattering.
I didn’t put any rompers in the photo, but these were too cute not to include. That light blue eyelet one has a low back tied with a bow! The blue lace is gorgeous, and the gingham short sleeves would be the perfect picnic outfit.
There are so many cute wedges and sandals out right now. I love the gingham and pointed toe of these sling back flats, but the navy espadrilles would be so useful. And look at the cute tassels on the fun red ones! I didn’t notice that all of these are tie-up shoes until I started writing this – I guess they are in? Or maybe those are just the ones I like out of the summer shoes that are out now?
I mentioned I had a little stripe problem. These shirts are evidence of that. Whoops. The bows on the beautiful gingham top and the striped tank add a feminine touch and a unique element to these shirts (the gingham one is the back of the shirt, by the way). I just got the striped short sleeve popover and love it! It is so cute and perfectly loose and light for the summer! Needless to say, I have many a striped tee, but this red, white and blue striped one would cover all of your bases for any cookout you go to on these patriotic holidays.
Eyelet, scallops, stripes, and gingham – shorts are doing well right now. I love the different color options they provide too! The gingham shorts are high waisted, which makes them even more exciting! So cute!
For your holiday pool parties, these bathing suits fit the red, white, and blue color scheme, without feeling overly patriotic. Again with the stripes and gingham everywhere. Even with my love of both of those patterns, I think I actually like the solid red one-piece best! That sash is so lovely!
What do you have planned for Memorial Day weekend? Brunch? Cookout? Pool? All of the above?
