At the end of every three day weekend, I think to myself that every weekend should be a three day weekend.  (Actually I usually say this to my husband who goes “Have you mentioned that before?” 😉  It just really doesn’t make sense that we work five days and only get two off.
This past weekend was a great one for us, and I hope it was for you as well!  We got all moved in to our new place (still a bunch of organizing and tidying to do, and trying to figure out how to get everything in our closet) but for the most part it is put together which feels really nice.  We also had time to enjoy a date night, some exploring of our new town, and many long walks around campus.  I absolutely love living on a college campus again because we walk so much – the other night we went on a walk after dinner and did five miles!  Doesn’t hurt that the campus is so gorgeous and basically empty during the summer months so it feels like we have it all to ourselves! 
Since it was Memorial Day I donned my red, white, and blue, but to be honest I feel like it’s just a classic summer combination and need not be reserved for holidays.  That being said, a blue and white stripe dress and red flats would make a perfect outfit for Fourth of July.  It may seem early to start thinking of your outfit for the Fourth, but I swear it always sneaks up on me!

  • Those red flats look so cute with every single outfit you style them! Absolutely love this classic look – glad you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend 🙂 xx

  • That sounds so lovely, going for long walks around a beautiful empty college campus. I'm sure you'll get some amazing photos along the way too! This outfit is so cute and perfect for Memorial Day, I love your dress! If I didn't just buy a blue and white striped dress I would totally have to scoop this one up.

  • I like wearing this combo in the Summer too and not just for holidays. I love those pretty red flats and the denim jacket!

  • I am glad you are loving your new place so far!! I wish I astill had my client out there so that I would be sent for work a couple times a year! (P.s. i will sign the petition to get every weekend down to a 3 day weekend)

  • Great summer time look!


  • I am not kidding when I say this is absolutely one of my favorite looks to wear. I have a very similar dress and shoes, and I love wearing them together. And you're right, I will wear navy and red year round. It's definitely not just for the holidays.
