PATRIOTIC STYLE: Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of the summer season and, of course, all things BBQ. From patriotic cocktails and appetizers to DIY photo booths and decorations, Pinterest has taken the classic barbecue to an entirely new level. But this look will make sure your outfit is as Instagram-worthy as the backyard soiree.
Red leather, white jeans, and chambray make for the perfect Memorial Day BBQ combo. I adore this Valentine Gauthier Officer Chambray Shirt paired with my J Brand 811 Mid-Rise Skinny’s. The collarless button-down is a big summertime trend and the lightweight material makes it transition effortlessly from season-to-season.
Even though wearing white after Labor Day is no longer fashion taboo, there’s something about the look of crisp white jeans that just scream summer. In contrast to the white, these adorable Aquazzura Embroidered Suede Sandals make such a statement. After a darker Fall/Winter 2015 color palette in footwear fashions, Rainbow sandals are taking Spring/Summer 2016 by storm. These bright rainbow-embroidered booties instantly bring a little zest to any minimalist wardrobe.
Finally – to complete this patriotic look it felt only necessary to top it off with my Celine Classic Shoulder Bag in poppy. I love how it brings out the red detail from my Aquazzura heels and, like I mentioned in a previous post, this charming bag adds a flirty splash of color. From head to toe, this look is the epitome of summer and perfect for a holiday BBQ with your loved ones.
