Cinco de Mayo Casual

Happy Cinco de Mayo, LLMers . . . OR should I say “Another Reason For America To Drink” Thursday :) HAHA!

No, but really, whether you’re Mexican or not, Cinco de Mayo has become quite the tradition here in America [even though it has nothing to do with our country really] and it’s not like I need another excuse to eat more Mexican food NOR to drink a couple more margaritas, but either way, it too has become a day I look forward to each year.

What is it about this holiday anyway? I mean I know I love it for its food and beverage, but maybe it’s also because it’s a chance to go out for happy hour with your friends – you know to celebrate Mexico crushing the French in 1862! “THIS. IS. SPARTA!” Okay, so maybe not totally. LOL! But it IS about as casual of a holiday as holidays go, so maybe that’s why?!

Either way, in true Jenna fashion, I dressed for the occasion today and threw together this low-key ensemble just so I could get me some chips and salsa . . . and guac. AND maybe some carnitas enchiladas. Ooo, and fried ice cream. Yes, don’t forget the fried ice cream, por favor! Wait, where was I?

Oh, that’s right! My outfit. So yeah, for Cinco de Mayo I like to keep things casual. For today’s simple look, I wore this woven Trina Turk tank top and these cut-off 3×1 jeans that I absolutely adore [so comfortable] I then spiced things up with chic Dior sunglasses, a funky pair of earrings, my trusty Kate Spade snail purse, and these Aztec-print Vans.

As you can see, this is a get-up that is as fun and as laid back as today’s festivities. I truly hope you and yours have an absolute marvelous Cinco de Mayo filled with as much Mexican food and tequila as you can eat/drink! Now I better scurry along; it’s not like this margarita is going to order itself ;) OLAY!
