What To Wear for Memorial Day

I truly can’t believe that Memorial Day is just two weeks away! With our move into our Lake House imminent, what to wear for Memorial Day is certainly on my mind and my favorite recipes are not far behind!

Because we are trying to be in the lake house by Memorial Day, this post, like some of the other content I have planned for you over the next several weeks is going to be a little short and sweet!  I am so grateful for my sweet assistants, Sydney and Tracey, who are helping me keep AWL afloat!

Obviously, the patriotic colors of red, white and blue are in order for the long weekend. Taking some time to remember those who have gone before us and fight for the freedoms we have in the United States is very important. Whether you are donning the perfect blue and white striped T-shirt dress, red and white striped v-neck T, crisp white dress or a great white T and denim shorts, you can’t go wrong.

My love of blue and white can certainly be patriotic! Pair this navy french terry dress with white embroidery with these great red raffia earrings for an understated red,white and blue look. This cool white shirt dress also from the AWL x Cabana Life Essentials Collection is great for a day in the sun or near the water. I really love this lightweight fabric that feels so cool on your skin.

I’ve had my eye on this white dress! Again, paired with these blue pom pom earrings or red raffia earrings and you have another great look for Memorial Day or Fourth of July. There are so many white pieces as a part of my Southcott Spring Capsule Collection. The twisted shoulder tank and white terry skirt and the white terry v-neck dress are perfect choices for the holiday weekend.

I know we will spend a lot of time out on the boat so I will certainly be packing my favorite swimsuits including the Bond Girl-esque sleeveless unisuit from the AWL x Cabana Life Essentials Collection and the uber-flattering one shoulder Sidestroke from Summersalt. You can see more of my favorite swimsuits in this post and the Best Places To Buy Swimsuits Online as well.

I’ve been working on a denim refresh for all of my blue and white denim. I just bought this pair and this pair of white denim shorts. These are my tried and true denim shorts, and I just ordered these to try.

I’ve gathered lots of my favorites from across my favorite online retailers in the boutique below. Let me know your Memorial Day plans in the comments below!
