Memorial Day Weekend essentials

WE ARE MAJAMAS Magazine 44 MAY 2016 WE WEAR Final

THE LAKEVIEW TEE

Memorial Day always sneaks up on me and I guess I blame the weather. When you live in Chicago, you get used to the seasons changing quickly but this spring jumped from freezing to hot and well, I guess that’s typical for Chicago. It’s a challenge if you #CareWhatYouWear. I find myself too hot to wear my favorite denim but too “physically” unprepared to bare my pale, winter skin. So how do we transition with style from winter to summer?

I’m a big believer in layers and loose, summer styles so I grab our Elina Hoodie in Pebble, made from our cotton/Modal blended fabric and I layer it over one of our Qualcosa Tanks. Scrunch the sleeves and tie it in back when you get warm but be sure to wear one of our printed or lacey bras under the Qualcosa Tank so if you really get hot, you look pulled together just wearing the tank on its own.

THE ELINA HOODIE

Another favorite is our 3/4 sleeved Lakeview Tee. It has a great shape to it and the fit isn’t too snug. Best of all the sleeves aren’t too short or too long and they’re the perfect length for the 20 degree temperature changes we have between 7:00am and noon each day.

I like to have a little more color on my skin before showing my legs so I grab a bottle of self-tanner and a pair of our Restorative Pants for wearing in the garden or one of our Sibley Skirts for that neighborhood barbecue. Both are loose enough and long enough to keep me cool but cover my…um…flaws.

My daughters go straight for our Picoli Shorts in one of our fun prints. They pair them with a boy tank and enjoy the flood of compliments.Β  I wear these shorts to bed when the temperature rises and I feel comfortable enough to wear them on my front porch when reading the paper and sipping my coffee on a warm Sunday morning.

By the way, loungewear isn’t just for bed anymore so be sure to check out our Kinzie PJ. This is a great set with a versatile tank that can be worn with the matching pant to bed or out on the streets paired with one of your favorite shorts. Yes, this is from our Mamas collection but I love the cut and fit of this tank.Β  Just slip a set of our removable bra pads from one of our Comfort Bras in the top and you don’t have to wear a bra with it. Talk about summer comfort!
