Hi All. Happy Memorial Day Weekend!! If I was in Michigan USA (where My Family currently is), I would be spending the weekend grilling Hot Dogs, Hamburgers & Vegetables, with some Chicken Salad and mixed Garden Salad thrown in there too, sipping on Arnold Palmer + Fresh Juice & finishing off with Fresh Fruit. But indeed I am in Tirana, Albania where it is currently quite cold, it is raining a lot and we even had rain today on Saturday May 25th. So much about Spring & the beginning of Summer. Anyways, above I made up 3 sets of Memorial Day BBQ-ing days. One for Mom (me), one for Baby Girl (Vivian) and one for Dad (My Husband). I could totally see us wearing these outfits. As a matter of fact my husband has a Polo Shirt & Madras Shorts almost identical to the ones featured above. Most of the items are from Old Navy, with a few extras for the Dad, from other brands. I made these sets keeping My Family in mind, but of course I think they would work for all young couples with a Baby Girl or Toddler. 

For Mom I picked out Colorful Red/Orange Plaid Shorts that are not too short, but are super cute & match the Plaid on Dad's Shorts. I would pair them with that Blousy, White Peasant Top & add a Red Plastic Necklace w/ large Beads (I purchased practically one identical, this month). Some moms prefer sandals & some sneakers. While I love both, I would probably wear the Sandals & show off a Cute Manicure. If it got warmer I would wear the Ombre, Stripped Tank creating some pattern-mixing with the Shorts. And for later in the evening, I might have swapped my Necklace for a Colorful, Summery Scarf. The Fedora Hat & Over-the-Shoulder Bag are optional but I find them both Functional & Cute.

For Baby Girl I picked two different outfits. One is a little dressier with the Palm-Tree Dress & Bright Orange Sandals. The other is still Chic yet Comfy with the Ruched Purple Leggings, Matching Pink/Purple Butterfly Halter Tank & Hot Pink Flip-Flop Slingbacks. Of course there might be a splashy little Swimming Pool involved so I gave your Baby Girls/Toddlers a couple of Chic, Stylish choices when it comes to Bathing Suits. Love them both. I am having a hard time choosing a Favorite though I am in love with Ruffles, Ombre & the color Purple, right now. That Cute Hat is a great match with either of the Outfits and/or Bathing Suits.

For Dad I also chose two outfits. One is Preppy with the Polo Shirt & Nice Madras Shorts. The other is a little more Hip & Casual with the drawstring Sweat Pants & V-Neck Stripped Tee. The Flip-flops & Sneakers can be worn with either Outfit. My Husband would probably pick the Flip-Flops over the Converse Shoes. Of course the hat is necessary to keep the bugs & sun away from the face.

So what do you think of these outfits & the items I picked out? Would you wear any of them? I always feel for BBQs and days like Memorial Day or Labor Day, Old Navy is a great & affordable one-stop shop for such occassions. Now that I am looking above, I forgot to include Sunglasses, but consider them there. I definitely need sunglasses all the time & my husband doesn't like sun on his eyes either. Vivian has definitely taken after both of us cause the sun bothers her as well. So I would include some sunglasses & of course some Sun Protection Lotion with a SPF of at least 30 or 40 & last but not least bug spray. And voila you are ready for a picnic or BBQ outside by the lake or in your back-yard.
