Happy Memorial Day everyone! I absolutely love this holiday…it’s so humbling. When you think of the character and bravery of the men and women who gave the ultimate cost to protect our American freedoms and values, it’s almost overwhelming. If any of you reading this serve, served or are family members of those who protect the USA, THANK YOU!!!
I was watching the Yankees earlier today and the announcers were talking about all the former MLB players who didn’t just serve in the military but actually fought in wars – stars like Yogi Berra, Willie Mays, Ted Williams, Ty Cobb, Joe DiMaggio, Stan Musial, Ernie Banks and Jackie Robinson! Can you imagine? No offense to our sports heroes these days, but I don’t see the likes of Tom Brady or Lebron James suiting up for armed services anytime soon. Grant it, it’s a much different time, but it’s astonishing to me really.
So did you do anything fun to celebrate today? I turned down a couple of cookouts in favor of catching up on some overdue cleaning, laundry and email. Doesn’t sound that exciting, but I’ll sleep better tonight being just a little bit more caught up:) Today’s outfit isn’t necessarily, “special,” but these summer staples are very much me. And I have to say, these retro Nike’s are some of my absolute favorites. I’ve had them for at least 6 six years but because I wear them sparingly, they look like new. So cute, right?!? I love the brown and hot pink combo!
Get the Look:
Tank, Target │ Shorts (old Cutoffs), Similar Here │ Shoes, Old, Similar Here or Here│ Hat, Fanatics│ Aviators, Old, Similar Here │ Wood Watch, c/o Jord (also see this style post featuring the Sully Watch as well) │ Bag, Jumeau │ Nails, SinfulColors in 24/7 with Gilded overlay
So it just dawned on me that the Jumeau handbag in this post was the very first blogger gift I ever received nearly a lifetime ago (probably 2007 or 2008). I cannot believe how much my blog has evolved since then. Take some time to go show Jumeau Bags some love…the designs are unique and will last forever!
Hope you all enjoyed the day♥
