Nothing says “Happy Independence Day” like getting patriotic and wearing the colors of our great nation. We know this can get tacky, fast. Here are some tips on how to rock the red white and blue while looking all kinds of cute!
Who’s ready for the first official day of summer? Maybe you’ll be lounging by your newly-opened pool, cruising on a boat (we’re jealous!), or BBQing with friends. No matter what you decide to do, celebrate the three day weekend in style with a little fashion inspiration from your friends here at Fit in Clouds.
Memorial Day style ideas:
Big H&M sunglasses // a white and turquoise beach tote // pink lipgloss // gold Jack Rogers sandals // teal Chanel nail polish // copper rollable flats // herringbone linen pants // an orange lantern strapless dress // a multi-colored bikini // a sheer ombre blouse // a pink cotton linen skirt
By the way, we are absolutely loving Koko Stanley’s adorable Memorial Day outfit inspiration. It may be from 2012, but we think it’s still perfect:
It’s Cuatro de Mayo (May the fourth be with you, for all you Star Wars fans!), which means you have exactly one day to run out and stock up on supplies for one of the best holidays, in our opinion: Cinco de Mayo! Read up on the actual history of the day then get cracking on your party planning.
The outfit: a Mexican-style embroidered shirt, simple jean shorts, and red sequin Fit in Clouds
The food: individually portioned 7 seven layer dip
The decor: embroidered pillows, DIY tissue paper garlands, and mini Mexican flags
The fun: a pinata, of course!

To us, February is the month of reminding ourselves to follow our New Year’s Resolutions, celebrating Mardi Gras with colorful beads (no nudity though!), spending Valentine’s Day with our significant others or best friends, and trying to remember if we get President’s Day off or not.
This week, our roundup features helpful posts on your favorite (or not so favorite) February holidays!
February 1: National Wear Red Day (Today!)

February 3: Superbowl
February 12: Mardi Gras
You know your feet will be tired after watching the Mardi Gras parades and bar hopping on Bourbon Street. Pack a pair of gold sequin Fit in Clouds in your bag to keep your style intact when it’s time to hop on the St. Charles Streetcar or hobble back to your hotel. Be sure to read up on Mardi Gras FAQs and what to eat, drink, do, and avoid during Mardi Gras before you go.
