Casual Memorial Day Look – Off The Shoulder Top + Frayed White Jeans

Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson

Memorial Day is right around the corner and holiday plans are underway.  To me, Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer and the beginning of cookout season!  
But let’s not forget why those of us in the US celebrate Memorial Day…it is a time to reflect on and pay respect to all of the men and women who lost their life serving our country.  “I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.  And I won’t forget the men who died, that gave that right to me.”  I get teary eyed every time I hear or sing this song.  #allthewarmfuzzyfeelings
So let’s talk a bit about this casual Memorial Day look.  I’m all for wearing red, white, and blue (well in this case pale dusty blue and white) and showing my patriotism.  Memorial Day is the perfect opportunity to wear this color combo.  With today’s look, you could easily add a pop of red (think cute sandal (love THESE & THESE), red statement earrings (how cute are THESE), a slim bandana scarf (like THIS ONE), etc).  Or you just wear it as is because in my opinion it is still very patriotic and it is the perfect look for those casual cookouts, parties, etc that you may be going to.
I just adore this gorgeous off the shoulder top!  The lace detail is just stunning and the material is so silky and light.  And I struggled with finding a pair of white denim that I loved this year until I stumbled upon these.  I love the fit and to be honest, the thickness too…they smooth things out and you can’t see through them.  And let’s talk about the frayed hemline…how cute, right?!
Do you have any Memorial Day plans yet?
As always, thanks for stopping by…have a wonderful weekend ahead!
