It’s Memorial Day Weekend! While this year will certainly be different for most of us — we’re still quarantined in New York and it’s unclear when restrictions will be lifted — it’s still one of my favorite long weekends of the year. Memorial Day weekend really marks the beginning of summer for me. We’re headed to the lake for sailing, hiking, paddle boarding, barbecuing, and relaxing. Even though it’ll just be the four of us (and Dakota!), I’m still excited to get away and to enjoy a change of scenery. For Memorial Day weekend, I like to keep my outfits casual and comfy but I still want to look festive and cute.
Even though I’ve been living in leggings and pajamas recently, with nowhere to go and no one to see, I am planning to pack some cute outfits for Memorial Day weekend. I am actually finding that getting dressed in something cute helps me to motivate to make the day more fun and to feel more in control and more like myself. I also want to take some cute pics so we can remember our first summer as a family of four even if I’m bummed that a lot of the things we look forward to most about summer may not happen this year. I still want to make special memories for my little ones and our family. And I can’t wait to kick it off this year. Plus, you know I’m making the kids wear all their cute summer clothes I’ve had for months.
If you’re not sure what to wear over Memorial Day weekend, here are tons of outfit ideas, even if your plans are just to stay home and relax (which honestly, sounds lovely).
