holiday-schmoliday

I might have been at work on Monday (my experiments never sleep), but I certainly looked like I was headed to something fun afterwards! Gotta keep making my labmates thinking I have an exciting life-after-work!
{ What I Wore: Madewell lace shorts (Madewell's current style // another affordable option) // StyleMint "Hollywood" striped tee // Steve Madden bow flats (similar) }
What did your Memorial day holiday hold? 
Work? Beach? Grilling out with friends?
Hopefully burning the midnight oil at work even when I don't want to, will afford me some nice time off this summer to travel! (fingers crossed!)

  3. Those lace shorts are gorgeous! (and they remind me of my blue lace dress!). I too was at work yesterday, boo. My office closes for hardly any holidays but I can't complain much since I'm going on vacation in less than 2 weeks. :)

  22. Lace shorts! I am probably (definitely) living under a rock but this concept is new to me. I love these shorts! Too cute paired with your bow flats. I did some pool opening, yard working and grilling with friends this weekend. Now- I am office bound. :(
