My Style: Rockin' in the U.S.A.

Today's Look:  is about being patriotic in memory of veterans fallen in active duty.  To show your pride, wearing red, white, and blue is appropriate on patriotic holidays.  In addition to honoring our armed forces, for many families Memorial Day symbolizes the beginning of summer with BBQs and beach vacations.  I was invited to a BBQ and started styling this outfit with an amazing top from Charlotte Russe.  This black muscle tee crop top with an American flag decorated bow worked perfectly with burgundy, high-waisted jeans from PacSun.  I accessorized with a beautiful gold chain necklace and bracelet.  Rings and black ankle booties completed the ensemble.  I hope you all had a wonderful three-day weekend!  Xoxo, Shelly

Fashion Tip:  To tuck in or not to tuck in, that is the question.  For a leg lengthening effect, wear high-waisted jeans and keep the jeans neatly outside of your heeled boots.  Your torso will be pleasingly shortened while your legs grab all the attention.

In honor of Memorial Day, my family got together for our annual brunch to pay respects and show our American pride.  Lately, I have been addicted to Pinterest, so here are a few photos of patriotic decor for inspiration for next year!
