Kick start to your summer wardrobe is officially almost here and people are making their last minute Memorial Day plans for the long weekend. Whether you are going to the beach, barbequing or traveling to your favorite family vacation spot, I have you covered on fun easy looks for this upcoming weekend.

Before the weekend begins treat yourself to a manicure & pedicure, select a bright color nail polish to complete your summer look. Some of my favorite colors are O.P.I “arm candy” & “I’m wired opaque electric coral red.”

My favorite trend this summer is the easy breezy maxi dress. Dress down this look with simple sandals and a cute straw bag for the day out to the beach. Or, dress it up for night time fun with bright accessories, wedge heels,and a bright colored clutch. These pieces are essential for your summer wardrobe because they look put together without trying too hard.

For the beach, the most important essential besides your favorite pair of sunglasses, is sunscreen. Make sure you’re protected from the harsh summer sun with an SPF greater than 30. Add a super trendy floppy hat for extra protection & a touch of casual glamour. Finding the perfect bathing suit is also important for your beach look. Brands like J.Crew have an assortment of different colors and styles for women of all shapes & sizes.

No matter how you celebrate Memorial Day weekend, remember to look & feel good while you soak in some summer fun!
