Hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend, guys! Do anything fun? My brother was in town from L.A. for a few days so we had a big get together at my parents’ house. We ditched the hamburgers and hot dogs this year for some homemade Cuban food! It may not be your typical Memorial Day meal, but we wanted to do something special while my brother was here and it was DELICIOUS!
In my mind, Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer. People are usually heading to the lake, spending the day by the pool and cooking out. I’m excited to say I am kicking this unofficial start to summer off by partnering with ASOS on a crisp white, summer look with the husband! I love wearing white year-round but there seems to be so many more options and occasions to wear white once summer rolls around. ASOS has a HUGE collection of trendy and affordable white pieces on their site both HERE and HERE and I rounded up some of my favorite summer whites at the bottom of this post!
I convinced Ita to join me in this shoot to give you a little male fashion inspiration as well. It’s not every day he’ll agree to take photos with me (bribes may have been made…) but I thought it would be fun to show you what we would wear to a Memorial Day cookout or just any casual summer occasion! So let’s dive into these looks shall we?
Ita loves to wear short sleeve button down shirts in the summer and I don’t think he’s met a denim or chambray shirt he didn’t love (I don’t blame him, I’m a sucker for all things denim, too!). He styled this ASOS skinny denim cuffed sleeve shirt with a basic white tee and white jean shorts. I love the look of an open short sleeve button down with a plain tee underneath. This is a foolproof look for your man to wear all summer long! Ita’s denim shirt comes in several different washes and at only $29, I’m not ashamed to say I ordered it for him in 3 colors. 😊
When attending a party or daytime get together outside, comfort is always at the top of my list (now more than ever!). You want to be able to move around comfortably and not feel restricted if you eat one too many hot dogs. This off the shoulder tassel sleeve dress is PERFECT for those casual get-togethers and would also make for a great swimsuit cover-up! I love how easy and laid back it feels and the tassels are everything. I could not believe this dress was only $32! It WILL sell out fast so grab it here before it does! Still keeping comfort in my mind, I opted for a pair of white woven slides that are only $35 and extremely comfortable. These are the kind of sandals you will be throwing on all summer long (I linked a few other pairs of slides I’m loving below like this colorful embroidered pair!). Last but not least is this super fun woven shell bag that I am completely obsessed with! I mean honestly have you seen a cuter bag for summer? It comes with a detachable chain strap, has a magnetic closure and makes for the perfect accessory for all of your summer looks.
ASOS has 2-day international shipping so if you tend to wait until the last minute to order clothes for events or trips like me, this is your store! A major reason I have been such a fan of ASOS over the last couple of years is not only because of their on-trend and affordable clothing but because of how easy they make shipping and returns! Life can get busy for all of us so it’s always nice knowing if you need an outfit at the last second, you can count on ASOS to have something you’ll love and will arrive in 48 hours. I don’t feel like there’s many retailers out there that offer that.
