Outfit Post: Memorial Day


It’s a rare occurrence, but this year I spent my Memorial Day weekend not fighting traffic, not traveling, not going anywhere. I spent my weekend rooftop gardening, grilling with my girlfriends, and relaxing at home.

It was perfect.

I also made the conscious decision not to spend this weekend shopping. I probably got 100 emails in my inbox from stores, big and small, reminding me to shop their sales. 20% off. 30% off. 40% off. At some point Memorial Day became less about honoring those who fought for our country and more about hunting for the biggest bargain. Not shopping may be a small and insignificant decision, but for me, it was an important one.

To all of you who have served and continue to serve for our freedom, thank you.
