First off how is it almost Memorial Day weekend? I legit just put the snow shovel in the shed. But in all honesty I am ready for my most favorite season of the year. Sharing some summer style with Evereve today with 2 looks that will be perfect for Memorial Day weekend BBQs!
SHOP MY LOOKS:
I remember the days of going to MDW BBQs and wearing denim shorts and just packing an old college sweatshirt in my bag. Whomp whomp. Unless we are still in college that’s honestly not cute and not acceptable past a certain age. Ladies — we have SO MANY BETTER options than that old college sweatshirt and Evereve has some of the best pieces for summer style!
Before we jump the gun and start talking about sweatshirts let’s first talk about the denim shorts. Ok so if you’ve been a HOLB follower for awhile then you know this blog is all about mixing highs and lows. You’ll often find me in denim priced under $100 but maybe with a designer bag, right? Yes true. However, every so often it’s wise to invest in some higher quality pieces.
While I may workout a lot my body is changing. I’m not as tight as I used to be. Sad truth but I’m going to be 40. I had a good run but let’s be honest — it’s not easy to stay as firm and tight as we were in our 20s and 30s. I also work like crazy and just don’t have the time I used to for 2 hour workouts. And I like snacks. Can’t help it. My point here is that clothes don’t always fit the same. Yes, I can still wear AE shorts and jeans on occasion but when investing in higher quality denim you are insuring a better fit.
Summer style is all about a good pair of denim shorts. These Agolde denim shorts are a splurge but so worth it. They fit good in all the right places. Not tight around the legs, not too short and the perfect rise. Girls – these shorts you will have for years. Classic cutoffs that will never go out of style and will make you feel confident when wearing them. No need for 5 pairs of designer shorts in your closet. Just 1 pair and this is the pair! I’m wearing my true 25 in these.
If you go to a good BBQ then odds are you are staying all evening. Summer style always calls for a good sweatshirt or long sleeve lightweight top for those late night parties, walks on the boardwalks and evenings on the beach.
This top by Bobi is the softest thing ever. The softest cotton and just a great versatile top. You can wear this one to the office or tie it up and wear it for cool summer evenings. I am wearing a medium because when I stopped in Evereve they were out of the small and the fit is fine!
And for the classic sweatshirt lover this one is for you. If you’re wondering what to wear to Memorial Day weekend BBQs order this Sundry camo sweatshirt ASAP! The moment I put this one I fell immediately in love.
It just lays so nicely, quality is topnotch and the bold pink stripe adds a bit of the neon trend! This is no ordinary sweatshirt. It’ll be your new BFF. I promise! I’m wearing a size 1 for reference.
So that’s it for today. Summer style shouldn’t be complicated especially when dressing for MDW BBQs. Look summery, be comfy because we all know hot dogs are bloating (but yummy) and feel confident. Evereve, always a favorite around here, has a ton of great pieces for summer style! Also be sure to check out this blog post from last week with 2 more looks from them!
**As of post time my camo sweatshirt is currently unavailable but this sweatshirt also by Sundry is a similar fit and style.
