Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery (sited: usmemorial.org). It’s an amazing holiday where we get the opportunity to honor the men and women who have served our country.
The Memorial Day holiday is one filled with many events, parades, cere
Color: Go crazy and show your colors this upcoming holiday weekend. You’ll find amazing colors in shirts, shorts, pants, shoes and other accessories. Our favorite colors for the Memorial Day Holiday – brilliant red and vibrant blue.
Printed Pants: Love, love, love printed pants. We’re seeing various patterns, stripes, and of course colors! we really love the flat-front printed pants from J.Crew (while supplies last). We’ve seen printed pants in Banana Republic Factory Outlets, GAP Outlet, CAbi Factory Store and other.
Flouncy Mini: Nothing says summer fun like a little flouncy mini. We particularly like this skirt style because we’ve been working out – and well, we love our legs. We’re seeing flouncy minis in bold color (perfect if you’re into the color block look – which is still a big trend for summer 2012).
Wedges: The perfect summer shoe just got a little bit sexy and a whole lot of comfy. The wedge sandal is the shoe for summer. We’s seek some very cute styles at Nine West Outlet and BASS to name a few places. We’re wearing our wedges with shorts, skirts, and super cute cropped pants that happen to be in bright colors.
What will you be wearing to celebrate the holiday and honoring those who serve our country for our freedom?
