Happy Memorial Day!
Today is one of my favorite holidays, and not because of barbecues, grill outs, or the beach. (Although it doesn’t hurt.) I hold Memorial Day near and dear to my heart- my papa was a WWII Bomber Pilot, and although he was fortunate enough to survive the entire war (he’s still very much alive at 94), many of his partners weren’t so lucky. Memorial Day is a way to celebrate our fallen soldiers of all military branches by celebrating with those we love the most.
That being said… it’s also one of my FAVORITE outfit days of the year. I LOVE Holidays that I get to wear red, white, and blue. This year, I decided on these adorable blue and white seersucker shorts from Lauren James.
I fell in love with them when I saw that big bad bow. I ordered them a few weeks back so I could wear them on Memorial Day- but how perfect are these for Fourth of July, too?! Also, the length on these are perfect; I hate too-short shorts, which is basically all shorts when you have long legs- really annoying. I was a little nervous because I almost never wear shorts, but these fit me perfectly! I’m 5’9” and ordered a medium. (My hip measurements can be found on my FAQ page, for reference!)
Does this bag look familiar?! It’s the reversible Kendra Tote from yesterday’s blog post! The red is actually the interior of the bag (it comes as off-white), but it’s meant to go either way. I haaaaaadddd to flip it for today’s outfit, because… Memorial Day, duh!
