Minty Fresh

Sunday, May 25, 2014


The quiet crackle of fire amongst the charcoal, the angry hissing that presumes as raw meat touches the surface of the grill, the intense scent of BBQ filling the air, the sound of laughter, the extended weekend, the sight of American flags at every corner? Sounds like it's Memorial Day weekend - a celebration to all of those who have fallen while serving in the United States Armed Forces. I can recall visiting Arlington National Cemetery with some of my friends in eighth grade through a touring program (Awesome program since we saw all the landmarks in Washington D.C. and visited Colonial Williamsburg). It was a somber occasion where we were able to witness the laying of the wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier. Though I have no ties to anyone who has served or fallen, I could feel all the grief around me. I would love to visit this place again someday.

To start off this weekend, I decided to wear this very simple shift dress from Fashion Union. I am a pastel aficionado so this mint dress is just what my Spring wardrobe needed. I wanted to avoid looking like the Easter bunny coughed me up so I decided to go with a neutral Reed Krakoff tote along with pink and purple snakeskin sandals from Diane von Fustenberg. Hope you guys have a safe and happy weekend!
