Easy outfit ideas for Memorial Day weekend – parties, BBQ’s and get togethers!

I love memorial day weekend as I’m sure most people do as it’s pretty much the holiday that kicks off summer! I can’t help but love adding a little red, white and blue to my outfit but I try to be a bit more subtle about it (and stylish!) so that it’s not like I’m wearing a giant flag. Here’s two outfit ideas, all items are still available in stores so grab them now while you can!

Easy outfit ideas for Memorial Day weekend


We don’t have a lot planned but we usually are pretty active during the weekends anyway, so we will be hanging out with a few friends and generally enjoying what is going to be a beautiful weekend!  I’m really looking forward to it.  For times like these, I love cute tops with jeans or shorts.  It’s pretty much my go to look.

I adore THIS TOP!  The stripes, the ruffle, everything about it is so good!  It comes in petite and regular sizing which is so great because sometimes when I wear tops like this the ruffle can be overwhelming.  I loved that this fit me so well.  I’m wearing the PXS.  I’ve seen it on a few other people and it looks so good on everyone!

A friend of mine recently started selling these BAG STRAPS and I’m so obsessed with them!  I helped her photograph them for her site and now I can’t stop using them. I literally have them on all my totes/bags that have handles to attach them to.  They are super easy to attach and they are only $24!  They actually make all my bags so much easier to carry cross body as some of the straps that came with the bag were thinner so it made it uncomfortable to use as a cross body strap for long periods of time.  Anyway, love them, check them out HERE, they come in 3 colors (and even better, they are on Amazon prime, yay for free 2 day shipping!)

This 2nd outfit is great if you are like me and are always worried about being cold.  Seriously, it can be 80 outside and I’ll still make sure that my daughter and I have a jacket with us.  I love long sleeve dresses so it’s no surprise that I love wearing long sleeve tops with shorts.  It’s like my insurance that I won’t be cold on a hot day!  This one is so great though, with the tie sleeves it’s basically like air conditioning for your top 😉


The top comes in 4 colors (I really want the pink too!) AND I just saw that it just went on sale for 40% off!  I notice that tops like these always sell out fast as soon as it gets marked down so grab it while you can!  I’m wearing the regular XS but it also comes in petite sizing.

As you can see I added the studded bag strap to this bag.  If you have this Prada bag, you know it gets kind of heavy after awhile and it’s annoying to always just hold it by the handles.  Mine did come with a cross body strap but it never was very comfortable to wear so I’m so happy to have something more sturdy and cute!


I am always wearing my WHITE JEANS.  I can’t help it, they just go with everything these days!  So I always just try to find cute tops to wear with them and these two are some of my favorite tops lately. Nordstrom just started their HALF YEARLY SALE and you can bet that I already bought some cute tops!  I’ll have a full round up tomorrow but here’s my favorites that you need to buy now!  They are all 40% off!
