Dress Your Memorial Day BBQ Bright
May 26, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
Be the hostess with the mostest or the best dressed guest this weekend. If you're BBQing about this Memorial Day, check this guide to ring in the warm in style.Warning - if you're country clubbing, you might need some more coverage. But as this is FashionIndie, we're going to guess you're grilling on your rooftop (maybe illegally), possibly in the East Village, probably in Brooklyn. If you're lucky, you'll be near a body of water. If so, slip a bikini under it all.
The weatherman is calling for mid 80s and sunny all weekend long!!
