Well May has officially arrived and I don’t know about you but I’m already looking towards the holiday that’s going to provide me with a long weekend. Yep, I’m talking Memorial Day! I might seem a little overzealous as it’s about 27 days away. But hey, planning is good right? 

I also couldn’t help but think of the holiday after putting this look together. The combination would just be so perfect for a backyard bbq or a fun little afternoon picnic date with your guy or gal pals. Trade out my pink lipstick and nail polish for red and you’re full on patriotic.

If you follow me on instagram {which you should!} then you’ve seen this basket bag popping up right and left. Both in my photos and my IG stories. That’s because I’ve been wearing the bag nonstop lately. Basket bags are definitely the “IT” bags of the season. And they are SO much fun to carry + style. I am having a blast figuring out different ways to where the bag. What I’ve done so far: 

the above look – plaid dress + white sneakers 

gingham mini skirt + off the shoulder white top + piñata earrings + gingham slides 

denim shorts + chambray flutter sleeve top + gingham slides 

p.s. these all happened this weekend #repeatoffender {whoops} 

Next week I’ll be sharing another way to style this bag in particular. You can find more basket bags here. And shop them below as well.
