Sunday Saying- He Is Risen

My Outfit for Memorial Day!

I’m a sucker for dressing up for holidays and this year was no different. I paired some navy Jack Rogers with a white button down, some cut offs and straw clutch, a pearl bracelet, some aviators and topped it all of a red bow. I think it’s the perfect classic look for any girl. What did you wear today?
