Memorial Day Outfit Inspiration

Memorial Day Outfit Ideas

A little Memorial Day outfit inspiration for today's Wednesday Wishes -- I'm on a real kick this week with Memorial Day-inspired posts {you can see yesterday's healthy take on potato salad HERE}! Whether you are spending this Memorial Day by the pool or BBQ, here are a few of my favorite perfectly patriotic pieces!

I always get excited for this time of the year -- red, white and blue is one of my favorite color combinations of the summer and we are getting close to the unofficial kickoff! I put together two different outfits for today's post -- one that would be festive for a cookout or picnic and the other if your Memorial Day plans include the beach or pool:
  • I have been eyeing these chambray bow shorts for awhile now -- they are also available in other colors/prints -- and when I saw this cute ruffle sleeve top, I knew they would look so cute together. I can't resist the combination of ruffles and bows! 
  • To complete the red, white and blue look for a cookout, I've included these star beaded earrings {could they be more perfect for Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day?!} and these ankle strap sandals. You have all the colors covered in this outfit without looking over the top.
  • As for a day at the beach or pool, I love this stripe swimsuit with the bow straps -- I know, more bows! Paired with the embroidered pom pom cover up, this pool look was made for the patriotic holidays. And although this watermelon trinket tray isn't totally applicable, I couldn't help but share it given the recent news: Draper James, Reese Witherspoon's brand, is now available at NORDSTROM. Hold. The. Phone. You may remember I wore the cutest green green dress from Draper James for Easter {see post HERE} and I raved all about the print, details and style. You can see the entire Draper James collection at Nordstrom HERE
  • Lastly, I have include this sunscreen, a summertime essential. Given my recent experience with the sun at my cousin's graduation last weekend {I swear, I may be burnt forever!} I picked up some of this sunscreen for our trip to California next week. I've heard so many great things about the Supergoop brand, I'm looking forward to trying it out. I will keep you posted!
What are your plans for Memorial Day weekend? I would love to hear in the comments section below. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday, friends!

  6. These are such cute and perfect outfits for Memorial Day weekend! I really love those shorts, which look like they're made of linen, which I love come summer! I also adore those Tory Burch sandals, how cute! We're most likely going to do a BBQ at our place and have family over. We used to go to other family member's houses, but since we moved and have more room for parties, we love every chance we get to entertain! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great day so far!



  7. Ok, I literally want every single thing here. Ahh! All the stripes have my heart!

  8. Red white and blue really is a great color combo, and even better when it's festive on the 4th of July or Memorial Day! I love those chambray shorts too, and a red lip would be the perfect way to put some red into an outfit!

  9. Such cute picks and the BEST color combo! I need those red sandals and the white top! SO pretty!
