inspiration -- americana.

 
www.shopbop.com; $248
I'm still hunting for the perfect summer pleated skirt, and this little Nanette Lepore number is a serious contender.  I love the simple, sweet shape and that it would pair as nicely with pumps as with espadrilles.  The color is what really takes the cake, though.  The tangerine shade is so punchy and truly fantastic for the warm, sunny days ahead.

Forget the solstice; as far as I'm concerned, summer officially kicks off this weekend.  And I plan to be hopping from place to place, celebrating every way I know how.  I'm all about being appropriately dressed for an occasion, but red, white, and blue pieces can look cheesy easily.  My wardrobe musts for Memorial Day weekend?  Pieces that are easy, light, and flirty, festive without being overkill, and can mix perfectly with my other summer clothes to take me from the lake to parties to fireworks.

Wishing you all a beautiful, safe weekend -- see you Wednesday!

I was just in Old Navy getting Ariyana some summer camp attire and I couldnt' help but notice all the cute navy, red/white tops and bottoms. I love the combination and it's perfect for memorial day, july 4th , and the summer. Hope you had a wonderful and relaxing 3 day weekend.
