Memorial Day Weekend- What to Wear?

Memorial Day Weekend is highly regarded as the official kick-off to summer and with temperatures promising to be hazy hot and humid, summer for all intents will officially be in effect.  Every year, my crew goes to the Linganore Caribbean Wine festival and for us, this event marks the official beginning of festival season.  I am blessed to have a circle of friends who are more like family and we will be spending the entire weekend together enjoying libations at the wine fest on Saturday followed by a BBQ on Sunday.


If you’re like me you want to be equal parts stylish and more importantly comfortable because the majority of the weekend activities will be spent outdoors.


Here are some of my favorite looks to inspire you for whatever fun your weekend may bring:


Asos Gingham Sundress 

Asos Curve Maxi 

Old Navy One Shoulder Maxi 

Aqua Chiffon Asymmetrical Maxi

DC Divas in the City- Networking for Women by Women

Eden Club DC provided a wonderful backdrop to the most recent installment of the Diva’s Lounge- a networking for women by women.   The event is the brainchild of Shayna D who bought her formula of success from the NYC networking events to the District.  The evening was filled with beautiful women who were eager to network, compliment and just celebrate their fellow sisters and after the ladies had an opportunity to do their thing; the doors were opened to gentleman.

The cocktails were flowing, the cupcakes were in abundance and I would say that this is MUST attend event for any women living in the DC area who consider themselves tastemakers on the move. The next DC event is coming in August, so make sure you follow @thedivalounge on twitter for updates on this unique networking opportunity.
