Memorial Day

z006fLoft cropped pencil pants (mine are size petite 4) / Sam Edelman nude pumps (very similar) / Nordstrom light chambray top (love this one and this one) / leather bag (bought in Europe last year – this one is only $48 and I also love this one by Madewell)

Happy Friday! I’m excited for my sister to get here and to celebrate a close friend’s wedding this weekend. I’m also looking forward to having a three-day weekend in honor of Memorial Day.

Every year I make sure to remind myself of the true meaning of Memorial Day. I used to work for several non profit organizations that fund programs to aid injured veterans, and we learned so much. Still, I’ll never truly be able to understand the complexities injured veterans go through. To those of you who have veterans in your family, I honor their strength (and also your strength) on this special day!

This year we’ll spend the day with loved ones and hopefully drive out to a nearby quarry where we’ll be swimming and enjoying the sun. I’m always excited to do something a little different, even if we’re staying local.
