It’s hard to believe Memorial Day is almost here! It’s the unofficial start of summer and is without a doubt my favorite long weekend of the year. We arrive home from a week at the beach the night before, so we’ll most likely grill out with family the day of. I can’t wait!

When it comes to my Memorial Day outfit, I like to keep things casual, comfortable, and, to help keep the meaning of the weekend top of mind, patriotic. Whatever your plans, from a day boating on the lake to a casual backyard BBQ or a picnic dinner followed by fireworks, here are nine ready-for-summer outfits that are perfect for the weekend ahead.
