Monday marks Memorial Day, a time of remembrance and recognition.
In western New York, Memorial Day not only means that Summer is around the corner, but that we have survived snow storms and what felt like eternal frostbite.
The sunshine and our smiles finally thaw our wardrobes. What used to be made up of solely neutral colors and thick fabrics is replaced by floral dresses and airy materials.
It’s hard to walk around in a bad mood when Mother Nature finally allows your skin to see the light of day.
Your biggest problems are no longer made larger by the burden of a looming polar vortex.
Strawberries are back in season.
Here are some stylish outfit choices for the beautiful days ahead. Perfect for parades and concerts:
I am not typically in favor of crop tops, but I found this one from Delias too cute to pass up. At $19.90, plus an additional 40% off it is an absolute steal. It can be paired with a cute black midi skirt to dress it up or jeans to keep it casual. The shoes are an adorable pop of color, keeping the look summery.
You can find the black sundress at American Eagle, the rose floral crown at Wet Seal, and the loafers at ModCloth. Each site is running pretty impressive Memorial Day sales. Free shipping at AE, buy one get one 70% on sale items at Wet Seal and up to 30% off sale items on ModCloth.
Lastly, I’ve been eyeing this chambray floral dress from Gap for weeks. I have $40 worth of banana cash burning a hole in my pocket so the dress would be virtually free! Paired with this adorable touristy cell case from Kate Spade and the ModCloth flats, I cannot resist. Bus, plane, train, or rocket ship -you would look absolutely adorable leaving town.
What do you look forward to wearing most this summer?
