What are you wearing for your Labor Day barbecue? I always have trouble blending style with comfort. But I think this outfit does a good job of mixing them together. Now I just need to grow out my hair enough to pull off that braid!

    It will be a little hot in LA for this ensemble, but still very cute! I think I may have to rock a flowy sundress.

    Oh my gosh. Those hairpins. Possibly the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Thank you so much for sharing!

    Those red flats are to die for! Red pointy flats are usually a staple in my wardrobe (I’m 5’11 and wear a lot of black/white/grey/red), but right now I am currently without them. Might have to pick a pair up.

    That braided updo is the bomb! Although perhaps a bit much for a bbq? Haha. Sweater dress looks so cozy.

    Ooh the colors on that scarf are divine!! i love me some gems. Maybe the perfect answer to messy bbq hair on labor day, wrap a scarf around it! And then wear it through chilly fall weather…..

    My style always has to have comfort, too. I love the choices here. The sweater dress looks like it will be mine soon. Thanks for the great share!

    Yesss! I’m a red lipstick addict and Heat Wave is one of my all-time favorite colors! Now if only I could do that do.

    My Labor Day plans fell through, but that just means more time to look at blogs and stuff! I can’t do the messy braid look like that, because my hair just looks awful that way (it gets a little TOO messy), but I dig the rest of it, especially the red flats. I’m on the taller side already, so I don’t like to wear heels much. Flats are great for me, and red is one of my favorite colors (after green of course).
