With Memorial Day right around the corner we’re getting excited about a nice day off in the sun (fingers crossed for a nice sunny day!). When you’re a kid you spend Memorial Day watching a parade gathering candy (or walking in it, ugh), but when you’re old enough to drink, all you can think about is who is having the BBQ. While we’re mostly still in category 2, there are many options for your upcoming time off – including being active, hitting the beach, or laying low and meeting friends out later.
Here are some outfit options for your day time activity, and day or night casual! Enjoy your day off, but don’t forget what the holiday is here for – remembering those who served for our beautiful country!
Daytime Hang: Memorial Day weekend is when you get a first glimpse of summer! Whether it’s checking out the local parade or heading to a friends for some burgers & dogs – all you want to do is be outside! A light flowy shirt is perfect for the humid New England warmth and a large tote will store a sweater for the chilly evenings. It may not be summer yet, but go with it – everyone else is!
Active Day: Confession – Reg shops the men’s section at H&M for workout tops. They just fit so well, and let’s be real, no one knows they’re for dudes. Throw a pretty sports bra underneath and it looks really cute. This outfit isn’t intended for an all day sweat-a-thon, but it’ll keep you comfortable while doing things like riding bikes, trail hikes, etc. Bright casual sneakers, trendy sweats, a headband for your pesky bangs, and a backpack for a water bottle/camera/snacks is an easy and fresh look for a fun Memorial Day.
Night Out: If you’re using your day off to catch up on sleep or laundry, don’t worry, your Memorial Day is not shot! Meet up with some friends (if they’re not too sleepy from day drinking), and have one last night out before work! Since it’s still a tad chilly in the evenings, this top covers you up but gives you the freedom you want for an “almost summer” blouse. Top it off with a cute wristlet, eye catching jewelry and some fun chunky sandals. You know the weather is getting better when you can show those toesies!
