Here’s to the 5th of May! Today may be the day that the Mexican army overcame the French in an unlikely battle, but it’s also a day to have a mini fiesta to honor it! Plus, personally, my mom comes into town today, my good friend’s anniversary and Thursday Bites at work, so a day be celebrated!
Word On What To Wear: Be a little festive and represent the Mexcian flag in red white and green anchored with black. Or go bright and colorful like a fiesta! I paired a chambray shirt over a white dress (both from Loft) with a bright fun necklace (mark.), red lips (Avon Perfectly Matte in Coral Fever) and some spring boots (Sheodazzle) since its a rainy day here. Originally I was going to wear this Marimekko For Target dress… but…
Or I think a really on trend off the shoulder top and bold pants would be cute or even a dress, like these from Express.
Or how perfect would this LC Lauren Conrad dress be for Cinco!
Either way all of these would be cute for the 5th of May or any other day in May 🙂
Word On What To Do: Go grab some tacos and a margarita! Hit up happy hour at your local Mexican restaurant or make some for dinner tonight. Street tacos are the absolute easiest and a crowd pleaser. I guarantee you have at least half the ingredients you need to make taco’s tonight and pick up the rest on your way home. Here’s a recipe idea if you need one.
