fashion friday: memorial weekend round up

and just like that, we're already to the last week of may! slightly mind blowing. memorial weekend means beachin' it for us + my sister's high school graduation celebration.

last weekend, stephen and I bought new bikes! so we'll be riding to the beach and playing in the pool all day. I love the casual vibe of beach weekends, all I need to pack is a swimsuit and some activewear and I'm good to go. this weekend, for the graduation party, I'll step it up by wearing real clothes. luckily, it won't be too painful since I've been buying up comfortable pieces that are light and airy and perfect for warm temperatures.

last weekend, I picked up an anthropologie striped romper that I'm in love with and I've been wearing this swingy black t-shirt dress non-stop already. I debuted this easy dress at puppy pawty with a statement necklace and have worn it on repeat since, with scarves, necklaces, etc. it's the perfect canvas, and will look great with boots in the fall. BONUS... you will not believe the irresistibly low price and where I happened to find it... click read more below to learn more about this must-have summer lbd staple.

thank you to all the veterans and service people this weekend and always for your sacrifices!

packable hat, nordstrom
kate spade tortoise shell sunnies, nordstrom

drapey t-shirt lbd (I have been LIVING in this and it's only $39), abercrombie
short sleeve striped romper, anthropologie
spanx peplum active top, spanx
nike tempo shorts, dick's
flyknit nike running shoe, nordstrom

so now for more details on this ridiculously fabulous summer lbd. I happened to see it in the window of abercrombie and knew I had to have it, albeit, I had not set foot in an a&f in at least 10 years. a girl knows how to spot a good black dress, I didn't think twice about stepping into my high school stomping grounds. it was just as I'd left it... loud music, half naked teens on huge posters, no employees to open dressing rooms, a surprisingly long check-out line. yet, so worth it.

I hope everyone has a relaxing memorial weekend with family and/or friends and that you stay comfortable, hydrated, and sunscreened up.

trivia question! who popularized the red poppy for memorial day? hint, she was a school teacher from georgia... click here to find out.
