Here’s the plan:  everyday this week I am going to share my selects for Memorial Day in reference to the topic I chose for that day.  Whether it be, Memorial Day fashion, parties/bbqs, minis, Mr. looks and gear, I’ll try to touch on it all.  Today, to kick off the themed week, I am going to start with my outfit picks for the weekend

Outfit 1

These Kate Spade gingham bow oversize pearl earrings are so cute with this simple scalloped edged one shoulder top, I’d wear with high waist navy sailor shorts, these amazing red, white and blue Gucci espadrille wedges and this perfect summer tote with bamboo handles.

 

Outfit 2

I am dying to buy a Petersyn top this summer, they are a little pricey at just under $300, but I love the detailing.  Low square neckline, smocking, peplum skirting and puffy sleeves, can you say vacation ready…  If I were to score this navy and white Petersyn top for the weekend, I’d wear with white cutoffs, red block heel sandals,  a royal Cult Gaia acrylic Ark bag,  how pretty is this David Yurman bracelet

 

Outfit 3

Who doesn’t love the perfect white tee, I’m convinced Petite Bateau makes the most perfect t-shirt.  One of my best friends gave me a turquoise PB t-shirt when we were in high-school.   I was surprised every time I put it on how much I loved the way it fit.   I now have many many white Petite Bateau t-shirtsThis MinkPink red, white and blue maxi skirt with buttons and a flounce, red block heels, red statement earrings and a Cult Gaia tortuous shell acrylic bag.

 

Outfit 4

Jcrew swimwear has long been a go to for flattering, affordable yet adorable suits.  This ’18 Spring Summer collection does not disappoint.  This tipped seersucker underwire(a must for me) shoulder-tie one-piece is so cute, with this effortless semi-sheer cotton Loup Charmant’s navy midi wrap skirt and Marc Jacobs gold flat slides from Zappos Luxury (I had no idea that Zappos carried high end footwear, score one for the online shoppers:)) add a touch of red with these super reasonable statement earrings and I see the perfect pool party outfit.  After a dip in the pool, cover-up in this lightweight navy embroidered beach cover-up…it’s on sale!!

 

Outfit 5

I am a huge fan of Perfect Moment Sports, I love my retro ski gear from the brand.   The brand has been creating ski gear for more than 20 years and is now offering high functioning active wear, with a retro flare.  Their clothing is similar to Aviator Nation, another one of my favorite brands.  This red, white and blue striped one-piece is calling my name, the grey marled sweat shirt with retro striped arm bands is a new item in my active wear wardrobe, with white cut-offs and summer staple sneaks navy Superga with my RWB adidas hat from PacSun!

 

Keep it Classy

I have a good number of life aspirations.  To name a few: I’d like to be happy to the point of contentment, a truly good mother, a good wife / lover, successful at what I love doing and described as classy.

For most getting dressed in the morning is a mundane task, especially if you don’t have fun and take risks.   I work in a corporate office, while I love to have fun with my style, I’ve always got to bring it back to classy / polished.  Mary Orton who writes the blog Memorandum is my queen, she pulls off classic, polished, fabulous and fun almost every single day; and THAT hair…

If done correctly, an all white outfit (yes any season of the year) can be the the peak of chic, classically timeless.

On this gloomy Friday in April, I chose to wear all white.  I picked up this great versatile top from Express, I am a sucker for covered buttons, today I’ve got it paired with white straight legged Citizen for Humanity Jeans and my favorite Jimmy Choo heels.

Winters in the Northeast are excessively long, unfortunately for me it is not my favorite season.  I am not the girl who relishes sweater, jeans and boot season, somehow every year I get through it, begrudgingly.  My uniform this year consists of these over the knee boots, for a higher end version Stuart Weitzman’s are a fashion blogger favorite!  Whether they are in or out skinny jeans are still my jam, I pair a black or neutral colored cashmere sweater with coordinating outwear, a Gucci belt and gold accessories, voila, there you have it…my winter uniform:)

Spring Weekend Vibes

Currently loving the relaxed look of a boho inspired OTS top paired with vintage cut-offs, classic gold accessories, white slip on sneaks and a casual catch all tote (essential for a busy mother of three).   There are so many pretty OTS options this spring, I picked a few of my favorites.  The Gray Malin esque tote is super fun.
