Friday Fancies: Memorial Day

For today's Friday Fancies, we are focusing on Memorial Day fashion. I have come up with two different looks for this theme: BBQ and Beach. So whatever your plans for this weekend, use these looks to inspire your choices!!

Memorial Day: Beach

For my beach look I chose a vintage style bikini in navy and white stripes. It doesn't get much better than stripes any day of the year, but ESPECIALLY when we are wearing red, white, and blue! These wedges aren't practical for the beach, but they sure are pretty! Wear your flip flops for the beach and throw these on when you leave. The earrings are a cute way to add flair without causing tan lines (because people who wear wrist fulls of bracelets or huge necklaces are just crazy. Statement jewelry is not worth than lines! This bag adds a hint of red and is a great place to throw your magazines, headphones, and water bottle! I added a beautiful white sundress to take the suit from beach to bar or restaurant or wherever your evening plans take you!

BBQ's here in the south are a memorial day must-do. I used the red, white, and blue color scheme to plan this look, and threw a bit of gold in for fun. The red shorts are cuffed and casual, and the white lace shirt is light and breezy. the wedges aren't too high and are a great alternative to flip-flops and wont sink into the grass like heels. Please don't wear heels to a BBQ. Unless you have ankles of steel or plan to sit all night, wedges are the way to go! The striped MK bag is on my lust list. I NEED that bag. And the gold accessories add to the nautical feel (and are just plain pretty!)

So there you go, my Memorial Day looks. Hope you have a great weekend!
