Pack up the cooler, head outdoors, and fire up the grill!

Memorial Day marks the start of the summer vacation season. It's a time to pay tribute, celebrate American heritage, and create memories with family and friends.

We've put together some suggestions for a long weekend outdoors combining our two favorite things- fashion and food!

Try this summery twist on traditional lemonade by adding strawberries and fresh basil, so refreshing! Artichokes are in season all summer long and are particularly delicious when grilled, add a little cheese and garlic for a mouthwatering appetizer!

Add a little fun and excitement to the classic burger by offering your guests a gourmet burger bar filled with yummy extras like tomatoes with sea salt and chives, bacon with rosemary, caramelized onions, and top it all off with a dollop of herbed mayonnaise.  Is your mouth watering yet?

Last but not least, dessert! Impress your party guests with this simple yet elegant lemon curd mousse tart topped with fresh berries and lemon zest.

And what do I wear to such an event you ask? We have some style ideas that should fit the bill!

The BambooDreams® Maddy Tunic is perfect for a backyard bbq! This lightweight frock has a feminine scoop neck and is sleeveless without being strappy. It drapes beautifully to a mid-thigh length with a little extra length at the sides. Add our new Kalin Top underneath, and you’ve got a cool yet casual ensemble!

Take our Taryn Tunic to the beach! This summery tunic has a scoop neck and an a-line silhouette, perfect for a beach cover-up, lounging poolside or a picnic on the sand. As for the wee ones, cover up baby's sensitive skin with our super soft long sleeve onesie. Did you know that our viscose from bamboo clothing is a natural UV protectant? But don't forgo the sunblock,  it's always a must when you're playing in the sun!

Have a great weekend!
