Any other day this would be nautical

But today it's patriotic. Star(fish) and stripes forever. Happy Memorial Day!
I hope everyone who got to enjoy today off had a great Memorial Day - the unofficial first day of summer, celebrated with cookouts and patriotically themed desserts. How can you not have strawberries, blueberries and cool whip on a day like today?

It was actually down pouring this morning and the parade got cancelled. I wont say I was heart broken, but if they'd just waited an hour, they would have seen that today turned into a gorgeous, although humid day.

  9. I love this! You look so pretty and are doing the nautical theme so well. Seriously though, the humidity today is killing me. Killing me. I'm trying to pack up my apartment and clean and the heat is just ugh.

  41. I've been kinda blog stalking you. I pretty much wanted to comment on ALL of your outfit photos, but that would be creepy, so I did not. This out fit however, well, I could not pass it up. Stop being so cute already, geeze! Also, nice job pulling off red, white, and blue without making it look like the 4th of July.
