The Meaning of Memorial Day
Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. The holiday was traditionally observed on May 30th but is now officially observed on the last Monday in May. According to History.com, Memorial Day was “originally known as Decoration Day, and it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.” It is also thought to be the unofficial start of the summer season.

Nothing says SUMMER like a gorgeous, flowy sundress! I love wearing dresses in the summer because they are “one and done!” You don’t have to worry about coordinating a top and a bottom – just throw on and go! You can accessorize them up with heels or go casual with sandals or flats for your daily activities.
Evening Summer Dresses
White dresses are great for the upcoming summer patriotic holidays like Memorial Day and the 4th of July because they are a blank white canvas that you can accessorize with pops of red and blue! I love this cotton eyelet dress by Tory Burch paired with this sassy blue bow belt, Chico’s red drop hoops, and complimentary red crotchet wedges.
Shop White Dresses
Any patterned blue, white, or red sundress can double as a Memorial Day or 4th of July dress. Simply pair them with complimentary colored jewelry or accessories of the American flag and you’ve got a patriotic look that you can wear beyond the holiday!! See our last post HERE for dozens of red, white and blue accessories! Below we have linked our favorite patterned dresses and USA-colored accessories you can mix and match for the perfect backyard BBQ attire!

For example, we paired this festive red and white floral dress by Boden with blue acrylic drop earrings, a timeless navy 5-row beaded bracelet and matching blue bow sandals for a completely adorable, yet entirely summer-friendly look you can reuse all season long!
