Can you believe it? Memorial Day weekend is finally upon us. We’re getting excited for three days full of lounging by the pool, cookouts with friends, and checking out local festivals and concerts.
Here in Indianapolis, Memorial Day weekend is all about one thing — the Indy 500. Whether you’re heading to the big race or have plans of your own, we’ve got the perfect pair of sunglasses to complete your laid back weekend style.
To kick things off, our friend Abby from seven & stitch put together a weekend style guide featuring some of our favorite shades. Check it out, shop the sunglasses, and most of all, have a fun and safe Memorial Day!
Carb Day? Allow us to explain … In Indianapolis, it’s only the greatest day of the year, second to the actual Indy 500. For years, die-hard race fans have played hooky from work to attend this all-day event at the track, which features live music and lots of infield fun.
So, what do you wear to an all-day outdoor event such as Carb Day? Abby opts for a festival-ready ensemble, in leather booties (it could get muddy, folks), cut-off shorts, a tank with a flannel shirt for layering, and an over-the-shoulder bag to hold all your essentials. Pull the look together with our favorite round shades, the Nova.
If you are headed to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend (lucky you), you’ll want to dress as cool and casual (and comfortable) as possible. Abby looks race-day ready in denim cut-offs (a must), a breezy white tee, and matching sneakers.
Pro tip: close-toed shoes are highly recommended, especially if you’re braving the infield. Finish off your race day outfit with our unique Middy sunglasses.
Looking for more Indy 500 outfit ideas? We’ve got a guide for that.
Thank goodness Monday is a holiday, because after a jam-packed weekend at Carb Day and the Indy 500, you’ll need some time to recover. If you’re headed to a Memorial Day cookout or get-together, keep your outfit casual yet classy. Abby dresses up a simple white dress and denim jacket with our Yuma sunglasses. These polarized cat eyes block glare and look cute doing it, don’t you think?
No matter where you’re headed this Memorial Day Weekend, borrow some inspiration from seven & stitch, and embrace your local happenings. Top off your weekend with some awesome new shades, and you’re guaranteed to have a stylish long weekend.
