What You Should Wear on Memorial Day {MOM + BABY}

I Adore What I Love Blog // WHAT YOU SHOULD WEAR ON MEMORIAL DAY {MOM + BABY} // #iadorewhatilove

The thought of Memorial Day brings to mind images of a sunny, warm day barbecuing outside with friends and family. There’s lots of food involved too {obviously} including cheeseburgers, hot dogs, grilled chicken, and the classic sides of potato salad, cole slaw, and chips galore. BUT, my favorite part of Memorial Day, you ask?!?! That would be getting dressed for the occasion. Duhhh. 

I thought it would be fun to put together a look for MOM and a look for BABY {or toddler!} that could be worn on this upcoming holiday. If you recall, Memorial Day is celebrated to remember those who passed away while serving in the armed forces for our country. Soooo, why not pay some homage to America’s colors on this day too?! Let’s hear it for the red, white, and blue!

Up first! Attire for mama:

white top // light blue skirt // red birkenstocks // silver crossbody bag

And attire for your boy or girl babe:

GIRL: FIRECRACKER TEE // white headband // red skirt // gladiator sandals

BOY: FIRECRACKER TEE // RAD trucker hat // distressed jean shorts // black converse shoes

Memorial Day is exactly two weeks from today! With these looks, you’ll be the coolest mom on the block and your babe will be the trendiest little anyone has ever laid eyes on! If you decide you want to buy any of these pieces, make sure you do it online ASAP so they’re delivered to you in time for May 30th!! Get ready for the kickoff of BBQ season! Woohoooo!
