TWO OUTFITS FOR MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

Who has fun plans for Memorial Day weekend? I can’t believe we’re already halfway through May. Ordinarily we’d be up on Nantucket for the weekend but this year we’re heading to France to celebrate Will’s 30th birthday! But you can bet my suitcase(s) will be packed with lots of blue and white, nautical stripes, and white denim just the same.

I’m excited to share two summery outfits both from J.Crew, which has long been my go-to for classic pieces like button-down shirts, cashmere sweaters, and denim shorts. I have to say I’m particularly obsessed with this reversible button-back sweater — I live for a low back moment and this one is extra pretty, timeless, and just the right amount of sexy. Love, love, love. Also, you need these scalloped shorts in your life. The fit is amazing!

  1. Every year I see a cute striped once piece and by the time I try to purchase it’s sold out. Thankfully I wasn’t too late and I ordered this suit in blue and pink stripes. Thank you!!!

  2. Hi mackenzie!

    Long time reader. We’re going to be in France at the same time as you celebrating my 40th birthday. I’d love a post on what you’re packing in your suitcase or what you’re planning to see/do.

  3. Headed to the Paris for the first time in August, would love to hear if you have any recommendations after your trip!! and Enjoy – sooo jealous you are going to the French Open!!!

  4. My plans are not as exciting as France but my parents are coming up to stay before heading off to Italy. Apparently I’m doing Memorial Day weekend all wrong!

    Before they leave they are babysitting and allowing my husband and I to go for a much needed overnight trip. Wineries, dinner out and relaxing- we haven’t been away with just us for over a year. I can just pretend it’s Europe, right?
