What to Wear: Summer Edition

May 29, 2021


Erin Schrader

Memorial Day Weekend is finally here, friends! Cue the red, white, and blue [and the most ahhh-mazing sales – see our Ultimate Guide to MDW Sales here], and the first “official” kickoff weekend of Summer! Before you hit the lake or toss burgers on the grill, let’s get one thing out of the way: what in the world to wear. If I’m being honest, I typically sport a swimsuit and shades the majority of the weekend. But if you’re slipping into real clothes at the moment [or planning ahead for next week] never fear. Here are 15+ warm weather outfits to wear all summer long! And on a more serious note, happy Memorial Day weekend and may we all remember why we have the freedom to enjoy a few days off!

Before we get into all of the outfits, let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – for sizing reference, I am 5’4, 125 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits [literally every outfit housed in ONE spot] and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can pin any of these looks below to save for future reference! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright, fellow “I like to get dressed” friends, let’s begin! If you’re here, I’m assuming you like a) clothes b) good deals on clothes. Every Tuesday we send out the top deals on the internet and believe me, it’s good. Want in on the list? Sign up here!

    I have been wearing my summer outfits for most of the last month depending upon the weather. Can’t wait to slip into a thong bikini with my wedge heels next weekend at my girlfriends first pool party of the summer. It would have been Memorial Day Weekend but the weather was so bad here.
