Memorial Day Fashion!

Leave a comment

Oh Memorial Day, the unofficial start to Summer! Memorial day means remembering those that made it possible for us to have freedom here in America. Which means people take this opportunity to spend time with family and friends by having           barbeques,picnics, going to cabins,drive-in movies etc. Basically everyone is outside. As a  fashionista, I still think about how to stay fashionable while participating in all of these outdoor activities, so here are a few ways to do that!

Memorial Day usually means being outdoors which means paying attention to a few things. The weather is the main one. In addition to the weather, know which type of picnic goer you are. Now there are two types of picnic/barbeque goers:active and inactive. If you are an “active” that means you are going to participate in all of the activities and you may even get, dare I say it dirty! If you are an “inactive” you walk around mingling or sit in one spot and find one buddy to talk to nibbling along the way. You will pass the volleyball back to the “actives” if it rolls your way ,however that is the extent of your activity participation.

 

Active: Pair shorts with chic sneakers a belt and a lightweight plaid top. Carry a fun backpack to house a extra top in case you get it dirty.Finish with a sporty watch!image

Inactive: Since you won’t be doing much besides eating potato salad and cookies, don’t shy away from a dress. You can do a maxi with a lightweight shirt tied around it. You can also do a cropped tee over the maxi instead of the button down. Pair it with gladiator flats or ballet flats; add a cross body satchel.

If you go to the Drive-In replace the shorts with skinny sweats that are cropped. It gets dusty at the drive-in so you don’t want your legs dusty, plus you will stay comfy in your sweats.

Hey Dolls! My name is Latrenda and I love all things fashion! I love incorporating new trends with the classics and making them my own. I also love cooking, redoing antique furniture, most specifically vanities and much more! I would love it if you followed me so that we can have some fun together. Below you can read about how I came up with the name Ruby Madison! What does the name Ruby Madison mean? Ruby comes from Proverbs 31 where the Bible is describing a woman of Noble Character: 10A capable, intelligent, and [b]virtuous woman--who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls. Proverbs 31:10 The Amplified Bible Her clothes are well-made and elegant, and she always faces tomorrow with a smile. Proverbs 31 The Message Bible Madison comes from Madison Avenue in Manhattan, New York. Madison Avenue is known as the “fashionable road” where the most well known fashion designers, hair salons etc. are located. Therefore, we come to the name Ruby Madison which stands for a fashionable woman of noble character and strength that looks good while navigating in her everyday life.© Whether she stays at home with her children or works outside the home or both; a Ruby Madison Woman can handle it all and does it all with style.
