To me, Memorial Day welcomes all things summer... you can OFFICIALLY wear white--though I think the rules have changed and Easter is the go-to holiday to be able to sport white and seersucker--and it's when everyone gets their butt in gear to frolic in the pool, bask in the sun, and head to your local beach/lake/river/slip-n-slide to have some summertime fun!
With that in mind, I searched high and low for some of my favorite summertime necessities... for cookouts, for vacations, for anything and everything you can think of to get ready to relax and get your mind out of the "work" mentality.
