Happy Memorial Day! Though I don’t believe in the “No White Until After Memorial Day” rule, it’s time to let the color shine as we pay tribute to the U.S. Armed Forces today. And since I'm missing this national holiday while I'm currently on tour in Paris, I'm dreaming of backyard BBQs with the fam and the perfect spring weather as I sport this beautiful Maurie & Eve top and some good ol' all-American denim! Let’s take a closer look at the details of this outfit.

I’m sure you’ve seen quite the bell-sleeve trend here on Wear I Am and it’s making another appearance with today’s look. They are just too fun to stay away from! What makes this piece even more special is the cross tie detail. As you can see, the top bares some shoulder action, but obviously needs help staying up and on. Instead of doing a normal halter or spaghetti strap design, Maurie & Eve took a fun creative route with a round low-drop front that crossed two non-symmetrical straps to tie behind my neck. So unique...I love it!

I tucked the top into a pair of ripped Bullhead denim and stepped into my gold booties. (Tip: If you have a more dressy blouse, try dressing it down a bit by tucking it into your favorite pair of jeans for a more everyday look!) Since I wanted the top to be the main attraction, I kept the accessorizing to a minimum. I brought in my edgy side with some Luv Aj jewels on my ears and mixed a few rings on my hands. And there you have it! My Memorial Day look…perfect for doing all the fun activities that the holiday may bring.

Special shoutout and thanks to those we’ve lost in the armed forces fighting for our country and those (and the families of those) who continue to protect our nation. So much love for you!

What are your Memorial Day plans? Whatever it is, enjoy and be safe!
