Memorial Day Fashion

Posted by Tara

I love our national holidays with Red, White and Blue. Navy blue is my favorite color and red pairs with it so well! Since Memorial Day is this month, I thought I would use some of those colors to inspire my outfit. When attending your holiday bbq's and get togethers, try grabbing something from your closet with those colors and being a bit more patriotic.

For my pop of red I wore my favorite tank top. I got it from Hello Apparel and it is sooooo comfy. I would wear it everyday if I could. I love throwing cute tops over it and even under it.

My navy blue I wore a polka dot button up from H&M. It's a really light fabric, so I can sport this even in the Arizona heat. In my opinion you can never go wrong with adding polka dots to an outfit.  :)

Today I had a good looking photographer taking my photos. Love him and how he is always willing to help me with my blog posts! I'm a lucky girl. Okay... back to the fashion!

White pants are always fun to wear. With 5 kids I wear them not as often as I would like to, but love the presence they bring to an outfit. These Ralph Lauren wide leg pants are a soft fabric and add so much class to this outfit!

If you follow our blog, you are probably wondering why I look different. Well, this past week I lightened my hair. Yep... ALL of it. If you go back to previous fashion posts, my hair used to be really dark. Just thought it would be fun with summer approaching to go lighter for a while. What do you think? You like me better with dark or light hair? 

What I Wore
Button Up: H&M
Red tank: Hello Apparel
Pants: Ralph Lauren
Nude Wedge: Target
Gold Clutch: Goodwill ($7)
Bow Necklace: Forever 21

Tara you look awesome. Totally rocking the wide-legged white jeans. I love your wedges and Hello tee. I own an identical polka dot chambray too and love it.
