Patriotic for Memorial Day.








Shirt: Talbots || Cardigan: Forever 21 || Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters: Shoes: Isola {Old, similar linked!} || Scarf: Loft || Purse: H&M || Ring: {Gift} || Lips: Mally Lipstick in BFF Pink


     This scarf from Loft- I am OBSESSED with it!! I bought it during Easter weekend outlet sales when I came home to Maine for the weekend, and then honestly forgot that I had even bought it until I came home for good for this summer! But goodness I am glad that I found it again. The colors and pattern in this scarf is gorgeous! There are so many ways that I can style it! I wore it here to dress up a casual t-shirt, cardigan and skinny jeans outfit. (There have still been many chilly days up here in Maine and this day was one of them!) For work this past weekend, I wore it over a favorite maxi dress and with a different cardigan. I know that this fall I will get even more use out of it as a transition piece, since there are so many colors in it! And some of the colors include red, white and blue, it made it the perfect outfit for me to post on Memorial Day. :-)


     Speaking of that- hope that everyone is having a great Memorial Day Weekend! I spent all of my Saturday and Sunday back at work at my summer retail job- 17 hours there between the two days! I am thankful to have a job to go back to each year that I enjoy but today I am certainly feeling the effects of all of my traveling from the past few weeks and jumping back into the swing of things at my job. With Memorial Day though- I do want to say that I hope everyone takes a moment of reflection today to be grateful for those who have given their lives for our country!! Earlier this month I attended a memorial service in New York City for veterans of WWII (which my great-uncle was honored at- more in this blog post!), and after that service I felt myself becoming more aware of all of the freedoms that Americans have because of the bravery of our troops. I am proud to be an American!
