Memorial day is just around the corner and I'm so excited for the long weekend ahead. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that. We usually lay low on holidays, simply because of the crowds here. I mean serious crowds. Holidays seem to pull everyone out of their hiding places and take over every outdoor space possible. The first year we moved here, we didn't know better and we went to the beach on Memorial Day. It was so busy that it was close to impossible for us to turn back. Ever since, we just stay close to home on holidays. What do you do on this day? Will you be taking advantage of all the great sales?
This dress I'm wearing is old - I bought it in a small boutique somewhere in Europe. It's still one dress that I cherish and I thought I'd share it here again because of the blue and white print, paired with red espadrilles.
In preparation for the holiday, I thought of sharing some outfit ideas with you. See my picks below.
After a week of winter temperatures (I'm talking low 60s in May, in San Diego - what's up with that SoCal?), the weekend came and hit us with 90 degrees weather. I didn't dare complain, after praying for days for warmer weather (careful what you ask for, huh?). Anyway, I was happy for the warm weather so I could finally wear my new dresses like this "Who What Wear" sleeveless midi-dress. This dress is perfect for summer or any warm weather and is exactly what I had in mind when I said that Target has become dangerous, budget-wise, of course. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. It's agreed upon that stripes are timeless and the feminine style of this dress is what "sealed the deal" for me. It's very light (yes, you might need a slip underneath), which makes it a great choice for the hot summer days.
