This Monday marks Memorial Day, the unofficial start to summer – a day for picnics, BBQ’s and all around beach fun – weather permiting. Where I live, in Santa Monica, its scheduled to be in the mid sixties so we’re thinking a BBQ might be a better option. It will still be loads of fun (and more fun to dress for), and easier to stay warm!
I’ve curated the ideal look -the perfect ratio of casual and chic. It’s all built around my new must-have item- Zara’s embroidered flowing bomber jacket. Not only is it versatile, it clearly works for an uber chic, free and easy look, but it also can take an evening look and give it an edgy vibe.
I want to take a moment to remind everyone not to forget the real meaning of memorial day – a day set aside to honor those who died in military service. Please consider making a donation to Operation Homefront and Military.com.
What ever you decide to do this Monday, make it terrific and create exceptional memories!!
