Get Ready for Memorial Day Weekend

The unofficial kick off to summer is almost here and I am so excited that we are once again hosting our family reunion on Memorial Day Weekend! We love getting together to play, games, talk, swim, eat and most of all pay respects to the amazing service members (our family has quite a few).

I love that when I grab red, white and blue outfits early in the summer I can recycle them come July 4th. Today I’m sharing 3 fun looks for your Memorial Day or July 4th festivities plus a ton of items we use to get our home decked out red, white and blue!

Double V Tank | White Jeans | Slides

Fit Tips: Tank size down if in-between, L // Jeans tts, 12R // Slides size up 1/2

I love this tank and jeans combo from LOFT. The tank is like a lighter weight cotton/ poly blend that makes it breathable and drape well.

Now we can end up with some REALLY hot days so if the temps turn up I’ll switch out these jeans for the NEW Spanx on the go silver lining shorts that are 100% opaque. These run true to size and grab them 10% off with code RYANNEXSPANX.

This next dress I’m in LOVE with for summer with the ruffle edging and cute skirt. It has the crinkle lightweight fabric that hardly wrinkles and breathes well for HOT days.

Plus what family gathering is complete without some food! These Fancy Panz are a quick and easy way to transport dishes then pop the plastic top and serve straight from the pan (I like the 2 in 1 best where it has room for ice packs or deeper foil pan).

Finally a white dress that is so classic for summer and looks great! This is lined in the skirt and with the tie waist and functional buttons I adore how it fits. Now it can slightly pull at the chest in my size large but I have a quick and easy solution for that.

Since I know not everyone is all about dresses for holidays here are a ton of fun red, white and blue options for Memorial Day and July 4th!

Now don’t forget those kiddos!!! My cousin Erin and I dressed our kids alike for Memorial Day for years. Now that they are older they tend to tell us what they want to wear but Target has always been a great place to find inexpensive festive outfits for my kids.

Now if you are hosting this summer I also have a ton of favorites that we have used in years past as well as some new finds.
