Happy MDW peeps! I hope everyone’s having a wonderful holiday weekend and has been able to enjoy a little sunshine, some time with friends and family, and relaxation! Yesterday, Charlie and I spent the whole day working. I was catching up on work in the office while my sweet hubs was building a shelving system in our closet! We were suppooooosed to have a small Memorial Day/house warming shindig today, but the weather is awful where we’re at and, given my health since my c-scope last week, I’m just not feeling up to hosting so we’re taking a rain check on said shindig. I felt SO bad having to reschedule on our friends, but I have to focus on my health right now-that’s just life with Crohn’s sometimes. It’s also a good reminder to anyone who, for any reason whatsoever, needs to focus on their own well being that it’s okay to do that sometimes! If you’re honest, people will understand! Our friends were totally understanding and happy to postpone!
DRESS (on sale for $18.50! I recommend sizing up-for reference, I’m usually an xs at Old Navy but I needed this in a small) | SNEAKERS (c/o Vionic), also available here and here | BAG | SUNGLASSES | WATCH | EARRINGS, similar here, here, here
In honor of Memorial Day, I thought I’d share a super easy and stylish spring and summer look with you! Only, I didn’t actually plan this for Memorial Day, it just happens to also be a great MDW option! I’m pretty sure I’m the only fashion blogger on planet earth who didn’t tell you about all of the MDW sales going on or give you outfit ideas for the weekend, haha. So instead of throwing more of the same stuff at you, I thought I’d share a perfect casual, easy, summer look that’s perfect for everything from beer gardens to cookouts to brunch. VERSATILITY MY FRIENDS.
There’s a million reasons why a good, simple chambray dress is a perfect piece that every woman should have besides it working for just about any occasion. It’s also a great look for any woman of any age, it’s easy to dress up or down, and, if you find a good, classic fit like a shirtdress like this one from Old Navy, it works for just about any body type!
For this look, I wanted to showcase how easy it is to throw on a chambray dress and not need to go crazy with fancy shoes or accessories to look super stylish! I styled the dress with a pair of matching sneakers (c/o Vionic) which obviously dresses it down. I carried a cute straw bag to keep things feeling springy and summery (refer to my most recent post where I confess my love for all things straw, hehe). Aaand I only accessorized with sunglasses, my handy dandy boyfriend watch, and a cute pair of tassel earrings (I wear these earrings with practically everything!) See?! Easy peasy! If you wanted to dress it up, switch the sneakers out for a cute pair of espadrille wedges. It’s literally that simple because the dress does all of the work for you!
What about you guys? What’s a piece that you have in your closet that’s absolutely effortless? Anyways, if you needed some last minute inspo for a good Memorial Day outfit then I hope this helped ya out! Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend, friends! Much love!
