It’s Memorial Day weekend, which means an extended weekend. This long weekend, I’ve been invited to a couple of Memorial Day barbecues. Now, when it comes to styling my ideal backyard BBQ look, I have a couple of requirements. I prefer clothing that’s not snug or too light in color. Now that I think about it, that’s my requirement for most of outfit choices. However, in this case, I prefer to not feel like an overstuffed sausage while eating grilled overcooked sausages. So, the looser, the better. Also, I’m kind of clumsy when eating, especially BBQ. So, whites are off limits, because ruining any white clothing is stressful.
Some people consider Memorial Day the beginning of summer. However, I look it as the end of spring. Maybe we should use this weekend to wear our last bit of springy colors. So, if you are still on the fence about what to wear to any upcoming backyard BBQ or summer party, keep reading to get all the details for this inspired look to help you say “goodbye” to spring and “Hey, girl!” to summer.
eSTYLIST: Backyard BBQ Look
- Washed Scoop Neck T-Shirt – I love this shade of pink, because it’s not too light or too dark. It’s the perfect flush of pink.
- Oversized Cat Eye Mirrored Sunglasses – These sunnies will help block the sun and conceal you stalking the grill to see if the food is done.
- Short Shorts – Yeah, they’re short, but they are also loose and the wide elastic waistband will help conceal any “food baby”.
- Mesh Lace Up Sneakers – Cute, simple, and cool. What more could you want in a summer sneaker.
