Memorial Day Style Guide

Happy MEMORIAL DAY weekend!  As we all head out for fun pool parties or family get-togethers, I thought I’d offer you a few outfit ideas to keep you CHiC as you ring in the holiday!
*******
As it turns out, I stuck with two of my favorites in pulling together this Memorial Day wardrobe ~ J. Crew and Tory Burch.  Hard to miss with either brand and these are just three outfits from many I could have pulled together.  In my book, the name of the game this weekend {and for most of the summer} boils down to the three C’s… Cool, Crisp and COLOR!  And I’ll definitely add WHITE to that color palette.
*******
From now through Labor Day, when in doubt, don a white sundress, peasant blouse or skinny jeans to stay on top of warm-weather trends.  As you’ll see in the outfits above, pairing whites or brights with bold metallics {see silver J. Crew wedges in outfit one; classic gold-rimmed Ray Bans in outfit two; or bold gold accessories with crisp white in outfit three} are always a hit!
*******
You’ll also notice the hats in each outfit!  Having a dermatologist as one of my dearest friends, hats and sunglasses are musts when I leave the house this summer!  And thanks to the popularity of all things Gatsby, cloche hats like this one from Anthropologie, floppy rims for poolside like the J. Crew beauty in the second post, and Panama hats ~ that are having such a moment right now, you can find CHiC toppers just about anywhere!
*******
Have a great time at your parties tomorrow and don’t forget to remember those we especially honor on Monday, like my handsome grandfather here and my dad {note to self: ask my grandmother for a photo of dad in uniform!}
