I’m having a really hard time believing May is about halfway over. Memorial Day is in just a few short weeks… How is that even possible?! I started a ‘Summer Bucket List’ post back in, oh, I don’t know, February, and I can’t believe those days are almost here. (That reminds me, I need to finish that post pronto. Stay tuned.) I mean, thank goodness summer is right around the corner… Do you see how pasty I am? Yikes. Pass me the Vitamin D.

In honor of the upcoming Americana holidays and get-togethers, I’ve teamed up with American Eagle to style an outfit for the occasions. I think a lightweight white summer sweater is a closet staple each and every year! Since the open knit can be a bit, um, revealing, I wore a navy bralette underneath. On a side note, I’m kind of obsessed with bralettes. They are so comfy and add a little hint of sexy poking out from tops. Definitely a do for the summer months ahead!

American Eagle has a great collection of nautical & USA-inspired pieces for the season ahead. How cute are these sneakers, this star-print scarf, and this flag headwrap?
