I Love This Look: The White Skirt

I hope that everyone had a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend! The beginning of the weekend we were greeted here in New York by cold weather, I can't believe I am saying this but I was wearing my winter jacket on Friday night sitting out on our porch - it was that cold. The rest of the weekend progressively got nicer so we hosted our first barbecue on our porch, which felt long over due.  We spent Memorial Day just outside New York City where my husband-to-be's father, Commander of the American Legion marched in the parade. The ceremony that followed was emotional and eye-opening to all of the sacrifices and bravery that soldiers and their families go through to protect our country.  

Remember when wearing white before Memorial Day and after Labor Day was considered fashion taboo? Well luckily we have moved passed this, whew.  Adding white to a wardrobe makes for a crisp and clean look, not to mention chic, which is just one of the reasons why I love this look, in addition to combining white with brightly colored prints.  I hope that everyone has a great week and cheers to shorter work week!
