At long last, Memorial Day weekend is here and we get to kick off to the summer! Temps are getting up there and the sun is showing it's face more every day, it's a perfect time to start thinking about all the fun places to go for the summer. There are great concerts slated for the pier this summer, and days are waiting to spend at the beach, on a bike, and with your pals for a BBQ or a sunny happy hour.

Or just let the good times find you, which I promise will happen when you are dressed for it. This is the Tao of Brat.

Develop your own style by combining pieces and creating outfits that will become your signature looks. And those looks, like magic, will lead you to occasions you won’t expect and will love.

Start from the bottom up with a fantastic new pair of socks or from the top down with a canvas parasol or a fold up UPF 50+ sun hat.

It's easy to be super sensational when you shop at Brat. Our vintage-inspired dresses are a hot ticket to the future, borrowing from the past. They have all the flare of now, and then make them your own with accessories and shoes.

Brat gal Gina just sent over a pic of her in her new Brat dress that is to die for! Sooooo pretty. Shot outside in the sun, it just screams SUMMER! She even sent me a note to tell me she is wearing it all the time.

The same goes for Brat gal, Tina, who recently bought our vintage style animal print skirt, and I don't mean leopard or tiger print, I mean full on; pandas, sheep, raccoons, rabbits, deer, geese, cats, and possibly a jackalope! With box pleats, side pockets, also available in an "alphabet" print and a whale print – complete with outside side pockets! All whimsical and cute. Pair that with Brat's sleeve or sleeveless classic cotton button front shirt.

PS This shirt has a hint of spandex so that it keeps its shape and with the front darts has a flattering fit.
Since it's Memorial Day weekend, please remember to honor those who served and are serving our nation in a red and white stripe bell sleeve cut and sew knit top.
Look lovely and patriotic in denim-like blue cotton off shoulder peasant dress mini.

Guess what? Brat's prices are super sweet. Much better than most stores, and guess what else? In our unscientific sampling, believe we have great quality clothing you can wear over and over.

Want to see what we've gotten in recently? Check out our FB page and Instagram. Lots of new fun stuff posted often.

PS If you are planning a picnic or BBQ, Brat carries super vintage style print tablecloths, kitchen towels, and the fabulous Toas-title grill which gives you toasty sandwiches and deserts on your stove top or grill. + now comes with a stack of recipe cards to get you going.

If you have someone in your life who has never been to Brat, bring them in for the first time so that too will hopefully find their new favorite store!

We at Brat wish you a safe and fun holiday weekend.

Hope to see you soon!
