Hi everyone! Happy Memorial Day!
I hope you all are enjoying this long weekend. Russell and I are going to a fun family BBQ today in honor of his brother. There will be lots of fun outdoor games, some yummy punch, and lots of food! I am not sure if you all know this or not, but both Russell and his brother Clark are both in the United States Air Force (Guard). We found out awhile ago that Clark will be getting deployed in a couple of weeks and won’t be home until spring of 2018, so this is a sort of farewell party. We figured what better time to do it than on Memorial Day.
Memorial Day & Fourth of July are such fun holidays to dress for. I plan on re-wearing this adorable chambray top I shared in Instagram a couple of weeks ago. I seriously am in love with it. Not only is it super cute and flattering, but I love the details of the cut outs and the raw hems. I also really like the darker chambray. Usually, the stores in Oklahoma and the online boutiques tend to carry lighter colors and thinner materials so I was so excited when I saw this one at Dillard’s (& on SALE). I was not able to find this exact one online for you but I have linked a similar one by the same brand above. If you are totally in love with this one be sure to check the contemporary section of your local Dillards :).
I love the idea of chambray and white jeans together, but for the BBQ I am planning on going a little more casual with a pair of lace up sandals and white jean shorts. I have linked one of my favorite pair that happen to be on major sale. I also am thinking of going out of my comfort zone with a cute red bandanna around my neck. Has anyone else completely fallen in love with this trend? If you are needing inspiration check out one of my favorite bloggers, Dede of Dress Up Buttercup, she is always wearing the cutest neck scarfs!
What are you planning for today?
