Pool Party—Striped Swimsuit

Lunch with the Girls—Crop Top and Mini Skirt

Want maximum effect with like 0% effort? Go for our Memorial Day outfit secret weapon—the jumpsuit! This one-and-done look is perfect for cooking out, impressing the relatives or just lounging on the patio and eating mass amounts of super good food.
