Memorial Day Style

"Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. (Southern ladies organizations and southern schoolchildren had decorated Confederate graves in Richmond and other cities during the Civil War, but each region had its own date. Most dates were in May.) By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. As a marker it typically marks the start of the summer vacation season." ~wikipedia

Below are Two photos I took on Memorial Day in Washington D.C.

So what should I wear to a Memorial Day Party?
I found one top that I loved and spun it three different ways. 

one top, three journeys

Here are a few fantastic fashion finds for the Holiday weekend.

I also wanted to share some Red, White and Blue Tasty Party treats I found on Pinterest.
