Happy Sunday Tall Sisters™!
Memorial Day kicks off my favorite time of the year in New York. New Yorkers start spending a lot more time outside, as the weather is finally more mild and accommodating. It means the start of summer Fridays, sipping rosé on rooftops, long walks in Central Park, eating all sorts of yumminess at Smorgasburg in Brooklyn, and a plethora of amazing festivals to attend around the city.
I was born and raised in the Netherlands, so Memorial Day is a new holiday for me. Remembering those that gave their lives for the freedoms I enjoy in the country I call home is important to me.
This year on Memorial Day I will be enjoying the sunshine from a friend’s rooftop while we experiment with everything you can throw on a grill and we reflect on all that makes this country an amazing one.
On this holiday I usually wear something comfy and colorful. I want something I can easily move around in, and most importantly it must be something that will allow me to eat my tummy full and still be comfortable. I always consider what I’ll be eating, don’t you? #Priorities
This year, I’m wearing this stunning eye-catching red number from Adrianna Papell—it is a head-turner!
Knowing what flatters your body type = power, and a fit-and-flare dress will always be a winner for me. It hugs my curves in all the right places.
The slivered cutouts on the shoulders add a sexy detail to this otherwise formal dress. I added my favorite booties to give the look a more casual tone and to contrast the red of the dress.
