May has arrived in all its glory and it’s hard to believe that by the end of this month, summer will (unofficially) be upon us. As Memorial Day Weekend kicks off, I’m definitely in summer mode – school’s winding down and I’m thinking towards the beach, parties with friends & not having to set my alarm to get up for the school bus.

Here are some fun fashion ideas to get you in the mood for the lazy days of summer fun with cocktails and burgers on the grill.  Order now to come in time for the big 3-day weekend!

The Lobster Bake – Going to a swanky BBQ that you need to look your preppy best for?  Nobody does casual but still summer Hamptons-looking better than Vineyard Vines.   This Beach House Dress looks totally carefree yet classy:

Mimosas, Grilled Salmon & Mixed Greens at the Club – Now that I’ve typed it out, this party sounds like my cup of tea!  I’m still awaiting my invitation.  But past that, headed to a country club or otherwise stuffy venue that you feel you need to be in conservative daywear for?

How about this Pattern Lightweight Poplin Skirt from for $59.50?  The skirt’s so cute and the design makes it pop so you only need a crisp, plain white shirt to go along with it.  Use coupon code OPRAH11 Pin:4281 to receive $10 off $50 or more plus free shipping!

Burgers, Dogs & A Bunch of Muddy Kids Running Around – Okay so this is the BBQ most of us will be at this summer, right?  This is a completely cute & casual look from Old Navy for that kind of BBQ.  I just love the way they pair outfits.  Alone, I never would have thought to look at several of these pieces, but together it’s an adorable look.  Love the shoes – the entire outfit, including the shoes, is only a little over $80 total.
