Memorial Day Outfit Ideas 2017

With Memorial Day weekend right around the corner, having a chic but simple outfit to throw on for the weekend’s festivities is essential. Off the Grid Boutique carries options for any venue leaving you celebrating the weekend in style! We came up with three common spots you may need a trendy outfit this weekend, featuring pieces you can find exclusively at Off the Grid Boutique!

For the Beach:

For a classic beach day with friends and family, we paired a red festive Native Sun Swim bikini with this beautiful tie-die cover up (Umgee, $89). Throw on a pair of flip-flops and a floppy hat and you’re ready to hit the beach (with some sunscreen of course)!

For a BBQ:

Many of us will find ourselves at a Barbeque (BBQ) grilling or enjoying some good food this Memorial Day weekend. We paired a festive navy and white romper (Mahi Gold, $198) that is made of a light-weight breathable material perfect for the summer heat. Along with simple gold and silver stackable bracelets ($14.99) and a gold necklace ($34.99). In addition, a gold clutch (Hobo Bags, $128) and nude wedges (Chinese Laundry, $52.95) to dress up the look if that’s your style!

For Fireworks:

This outfit is the perfect amount of patriotic, and you can’t go wrong with white denim and off-the shoulder trend for summer time! With these high-rise slim flare crop jeans (Adriano Goldschmied, $198) and blue accented patterned off the shoulder top (Analili, $152) this look can easily go from day to nighttime.

How To Dress for Spring Wedding Festivities

Spring wedding season is now in full bloom, especially here in Florida. Invitations are arriving in the mail, and if you’re like most women, you’re probably going through a closet overflowing with ladies clothing, but you’re still at a loss as to what to wear. Even if the dress code is mentioned on the invitation, it can still be hard to figure out what to wear.

Here is what I would suggest for a wonderful spring/summer wedding:

Most weddings these days are semi-formal, which means a great-looking cocktail dress would be perfect for an evening wedding. And in Florida especially, resort wear is perfectly appropriate. If no dress code is mentioned on the invitation, you can play it safe and wear a great looking cocktail dress with a hemline that is slightly above or just to the knee.

We have plenty of silk or chiffon dresses at Off The Grid Boutique for you to choose from. Some of our styles are quite sophisticated, while others are simple with beautiful patterns. You want to look and feel beautiful, that’s the key to really enjoying yourself at a wedding!

If the invitation specifies black tie optional, your dress should be a bit more formal than a typical cocktail dress, but not an evening gown. A simple looking floor-length dress is perfectly appropriate, unless it’s a very formal black tie wedding, then a long luxurious evening dress would be perfect, something that looks great with a tuxedo!

If you’re lucky enough to be invited to a wedding that specifies “festive attire” you can look forward to a fun, party-like atmosphere.

Bolder colors, fun patterns and shorter skirts are in order. You want to feel young, pretty and sexy in whatever you choose.

If the wedding and reception are being held on the beach or on a boat, then resort wear would be ideal. This is something Off The Grid Boutique has an abundance of. Come in and look around.

We carry Mahi Gold, Analili, Out of the Blue, Line and Dot, all fabulous lines for ladies dresses and more, for both moms and daughters. We have an amazing selection of designs that would be perfect for spring/summer weddings, rehearsal dinners, cocktail parties, and/or any of the other events surrounding the big day!
