Memorial Day means a nice long weekend filled with backyard parties spent with family and friends, but what I don’t want to forget today is the meaning behind this day. The supreme price that many brave men and women made for us and for our freedom. Lets not forget the sacrifices made by their loved ones as well. So I’ve made a special effort today to pause and whisper a prayer for those folks and for all they did to make all of our lives better. Godspeed Soldiers, Godspeed.
This is a war memorial for New Hampshire Soldiers lost at sea. Ever since I was a small child I’ve thought that “sea lady” was so beautiful, and today even more so because I understand the meaning behind her.
I know this is a fashion blog, so on to what I wore on this sunny, warm, perfect weekend.
How bout that belt?! Sparkles like fireworks eh?! ( See how I’m working this whole theme of holiday weekend in this post;)
I’ve been looking and looking for madras shorts and could not find any anywhere …enter Brett, the lovely and ever stylish maven behind Silvergirl, she found these at Old Navy in the men’s section. I trotted right over to my local Old Navy and ta da, my madras dream come true.
V-Neck Tee – Gap
Madras print shorts – Old Navy – mens ( I did need to get them hemmed up a bit).
Belt – Gap
Freedom – priceless gift from the men and women of our armed forces.
