White & Lace

Shirt: Anthro, old (similar) / Jeans: Joe’s / Sunglasses: Ray-Ban / Shoes: Jack Rogers
Rings: Margaret Elizabeth via Rocksbox & Ariella Collection / Clutch: Mayflower in Chatham

Although it was pretty chilly on the Cape this Memorial Day weekend, I still wanted to wear a bright and summery all-white outfit. I love these Joe’s Jeans — they are stain proof! Since it was still cool, I wore a 3/4 sleeve mixed media sweater with a lace bottom. It was a fall purchase, but I’ve linked to several similar summer-weather pieces below! And I picked up this cute canvas clutch earlier in the day at one of the local shops in town, The Mayflower. Its changed quite a bit since I shopped there as a kid, but they have a ton of great home decor items, clothing, jewelry, and gifts.

Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day. Although most of us have been spending our long weekend at the beach with friends and family, its important to remember the real reason for today’s holiday. Its a day of remembrance and thanks for all of those brave men and women who sacrificed their lives so we could have the freedoms that we enjoy today.

So let those American flags fly proud today as we remember all of our amazing men and women in our military — past, present, and future.

 

If Memorial Day was sunny…

MemorialDay

Bathing Suit / Flip Flops / Lip balm (with SPF!) / Face Spray
Hat / Book / Straw Tote / Sunscreen

The forecast for this weekend is less than ideal.  Rainy, cold temps, thunderstorms, and wind!  Instead of thinking about what I can do this weekend, I keep dreaming about the beautiful beach day that is clearly not going to happen.  I received a sample of the Coola sunscreen in my most recent Birchbox, but I think I will need to wait a bit longer to try it out!   The only thing I had planned on doing that still seems like an option is to finish The Great Gatsby again before I go see it in the theaters.  I guess it’s time to go unpack my bikini and sun hat and go search for my Hunters and rain jacket!

I hope your Memorial Day weekend is relaxing and fun… despite the weather!
