It’s time to dive into the weekend we have all been looking forward too…. Memorial Day Weekend!! I can't help but feel the excitement bubbling up like a fizzy summer cocktail!
Let’s first take a moment to appreciate all the history behind a fun weekend of backyard barbecues and beachside bonfires. Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day has its origins in the aftermath of the Civil War, when communities across the United States began honoring fallen soldiers by decorating their graves with flowers and flags. Civilians would do this as a gesture of remembrance and gratitude; a way to remember and show appreciation to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation's freedom. Over time, Decoration Day evolved into the Memorial Day we know and love today - a time to honor all military personnel who have passed away, while also embracing the spirit of togetherness that defines the weekend. So, as we take part in all the fun festivities, let us take the time to honor the heroes who have bravely served our country, to cherish moments with loved ones, and to kick off the summer season with excitement and gratitude!
Whether you're lounging by the pool or hitting up a rooftop party, Memorial Day Weekend calls for outfits that are as sassy and stylish as you are. So buckle up, buttercups, because we're about to dive into all the great outfits we have at Stile by Per Lei. We have everything from chic sundresses to trendy denim shorts. We've got everything you need to slay the style game this Memorial Day Weekend!! Below, check out my style guide for wherever this MDW takes you..
I know my favorite activity to do over MDW is going down the shore! I have one of these sets already and I am definitely going to pack it for my Memorial Day weekend at the beach. Whether you're indulging in grilled goodies or soaking up the sun, this set is perfect for a day of relaxation and fun! I would pair it with a pair of sandals or sneakers and add on my favorite jewelry and accessories from Stile to tie the whole thing together!
Next, our floral eyelet peplum top and straight denim is the perfect pair for Memorial Day spent at a cozy backyard gathering. Enjoy the warm company of friends and family while getting your cornhole on! Whether you're lounging on a patio chair or engaging in fun activities under the sun, this stylish yet laid-back outfit is perfect for celebrating the holiday in effortless fashion. Just add sandals and your favorite accessories to pull the outfit together.
For some, including my family, Memorial Day Weekend is a time to have good food and enjoy watching the Philadelphia Phillies together! This year, the Phils are away all weekend so a classic striped dress is the perfect casual fit to watch the game at home with friends and family! Add on your favorite sandal or sneaker and you are good to go.
This white tube top and comfy white pants are the perfect fit to have a fun afternoon full of summer cocktails at my favorite waterfront restaurant in Philly, Liberty Point! Enjoy delicious food and drinks with friends while soaking in the picturesque views of the Delaware River and the city skyline. You could wear the outfit with sandals during the day and add heels and a cute bag to transition into the night for the perfect Memorial Day outfit.
Last, but certainly not least, we have this classic white dress that is not only the perfect outfit for MDW but is going to be a staple in my closet all summer long! I am going to wear this dress to my favorite rooftop restaurant in Philadelphia, Assembly. With the incredible view of the parkway and the art museum, there is no better place to enjoy dinner with friends and watch the city celebrate from above!
