Red, White + Cuties: Memorial Day Style

Memorial Day in New England could easily be either 60 degrees or 80 degrees, so trying to plan an outfit is a bit tough.  Fingers crossed it's more like 80, but we've got a few outfit options just in case! ;)  While I wouldn't mind dressing Ellie like a walking American flag for the occasion, I will probably just grab a few red, white + blue things already in Ellie's closet and mix + match them - a little accessorizing goes a long way!  It was really hard to narrow these down, but here are a few of the many adorable festive red, white + blue options I've come across for girls and boys:


I'm also obsessed with this mini skort that would be perfect for Memorial Day - I mean, seriously?! If you're looking to add a little sparkle, I love this Zozubaby + Ryan and Wren collab clip and this red glitter bow (don't forget to use code ELLIA15 for 15% off your Isla Ann Inspirations purchase)!

Ellia May Designs recently sent us a few bows to try including that gold polka dot one in the middle of the set above. Their bows are adorable and they have a huge selection to choose from, including some super fun, unique prints that I'm dying to get my hands on (like this donut bow!!).  Their new collection launches May 26th, so be sure to check out their Etsy shop for some new items coming out soon!

How about those TEETH?! Heart eyes for days.

As I mention on at least a weekly basis (or so it probably seems), chambray is my favorite and I'm sure Ellie's Memorial Day weekend style will include at least one chambray outfit.  I have no idea what I will be wearing, but I'm sure it'll be something coordinated with my little girlfriend.  I don't necessarily like to be super matchy-matchy, but am obsessed with coordinating our outfits! ;)  Not only is it cute, it also just looks better in pictures and that makes my mamarazzi heart happy.

I'm not entirely sure yet what our Memorial Day plans will be, but I'm thinking our long weekend will involve plenty of family time, good food, hammocking, s'mores + Ellie's first sparklers!! I can't believe the unofficial start to summer is less than two weeks away, but am more than ready for it - how about you?! :)


  1. Love it all! Those sandals! I wanted to get them for Isla but she's weird about shoes & I'm 99.9% positive she wouldn't wear them..bummer. I want them for myself too actually ;) Love the boy selections too--as always :)

    1. Thanks love! I love all of the Old Navy shoes and would definitely wear them myself too if I could! ;) Ellie's feet are growing so fast, she already can't fit into one pair of sandals that I bought her and she never got to wear them (insert eyeroll emoji here haha).
