Memorial Day

This year was the first year in a long time that my kids were done with school BEFORE Memorial Day weekend. They usually have to go back to school a couple of more days until summer vacation starts. But this year, their last day was in May, the Thursday before Memorial Day.

We spent our weekend at the soccer fields for son's Memorial Day cup tournament. Unfortunately they did not place but it was a beautiful weekend and we enjoyed watching him out there. Since they didn't win, we had Monday off and spent the day at the pool.

Of course, we didn't forget the reason for Memorial Day and we are thankful to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. My Dad was a Veteran and although he did not die while in combat, he did serve his country.

My summer staple is the skort! I love this denim one by Zara! Here I paired it with a light and breezy tank with flip flops for a long hot day of soccer games!

 

It was a beautiful weekend but it was very hot. In fact, it was unseasonably warm even for Houston. I stayed cool with this light tank, denim skort and of course a snow cone! My top here / My skort here / My shoes here
