Memorial Day Cute

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Sorry for the late post!  We spent the day with friends and I didn't have any posts scheduled.

So this weekend is Memorial Day weekend.  Around here, that means barbecues, swimming pools, and, of course, the Indy 500.

Memorial Day of course is to honor our country's fallen heroes, so a patriotic color scheme is the order of the day.  Red, white and blue are everywhere.  With that in mind, I've put together a cute, patriotic (but not over-the-top!) outfit that can go anywhere your Memorial Day weekend may take you!

Memorial Day Cute

Mossimo Supply Co. Scoop-Neck Fashion Tank in Inca Red - $9.99 - Target
I like this tank top a lot.  The diagonal stripes are much more flattering than horizontal stripes.  The red and white color scheme echoes the American flag without screaming Old Glory.  It's nice and breezy for the balmy temps we've come to expect Memorial Day weekend, and it looks just as at home on your way to the  pool as it does in your uncle's backyard or the racetrack.

The Diva Cuffed Denim Cut-Off Shorts - $23.50 - Old Navy
These shorts have a bit of the distressed look that's really popular right now without being ridiculously ripped up.  They're a little longer than a lot of shorts on the market these days (which is kind of sad, if you think about it), which is good, because a lot of clothes today seem really hoochie (to me, anyway).  Plus I'm crazy for dark wash denim.

Mickey Crochet Espadrilles - $15 - ASOS
I think these crochet flats are a nice touch to this outfit.  They're cute and they'll keep your feet cool.

Natural Sequin Straw Tote - $39.99 - Target
Straw bags are great for summer, and the sequins add an unexpected glam touch.  The blue lining really adds  a nice pop as well, and fits the color scheme wonderfully.
