3 Looks to Wear this Memorial Day Weekend

Need some ideas of what to pack and wear this Memorial Day Weekend? Here's 3 looks and a few trends for the long weekend...

Look 1: Easy, Breezy, Espadrilles
Occasion: Picnic or Memorial Day BBQ

Style Tips:
Walk to your next BBQ or picnic this weekend in a pair of  espadrilles and an easy white shirt dress. These are my first pair of espadrilles and I'm obsessed. I love how the rope features bring a boho feel to them. Not only are they comfortable, but they also bring a pop of color to a simple outfit. You'll be seeing these pair of espadrilles in future summer looks! 

This loose fitting white shirt dress from Tobi is probably one of the most versatile items in my closet. This white shirt dress can be dressed up to work or dress down for an easy summer look.
Shop this look:
Aline White Shirt Dress | Tobi (I'm wearing a size small and its $28!)
Espadrilles Ballet Flat | Target ($28) 
Dooney & Bourke Purse (look alike) | Dooney & Bourke ($268)

Look #2: Elevate the Little Black Dress
Occasion: Shopping Day (there's lots of Memorial Day Sales this weekend!)

Style Tips: 
Dress up a basic black dress with three chic accessories this summer season:

1. The Red Bandana 
My favorite way to wear my red bandana this season is to wear it as a choker. You can also wear it as a scarf with the knot showing.

2. March on in Mules 
Mules are here to stay for summer. Not only are these slip on shoes on trend with their block heels, but the color grey is also so versatile.

3. Navy Satchel Bag 
I love a bag that fits my lifestyle. This bag can go with me from work to happy hour. Its classic, clean aesthetic adds some formality to my entire outfit.

Shop my look:
Dawn Linen Shift Dress | Tobi (On Sale $14!)
Mules (Only available in black) | Target (On Sale $25.48)
Purse | Cocovann ($269)
Red Bandana | Levis ($14)

Look #3: Sunshine & Sundresses
Occasion: Brunch, Lunch, or Dinner

Style Tip: 
Make a statement this weekend with a bold, colorful print.
I've been dwelling in beautiful blush tones, greys, whites, and blacks all winter long. As much as I love my neutrals, I also love my prints. Look for bright yellows, oranges, or red florals this season.

I especially love how this maxi dress fits me perfectly. I can wear this to lunch with my girlfriends or dinner with my boyfriend. Since the print is center of this look, I kept my accessories simple with a pair of open toe block heels and a vintage purse.

Recreate & Shop my look:
Who What Wear Yellow Blouse (look alike) | Target ($24.99)
Who What Wear Yellow Pleated Skirt (look alike) | Target ($29.99)
Dolce Vita Block Heels (look alike) | Nordstrom Rack ($89.97)
Dooney & Bourke  Purse (look alike) | Dooney & Bourke ($268)
