Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day!
Today marks the official beginning of summer. Memorial Day weekend is such a fun opportunity to spend time with family and friends by the beach and indulge in a refreshing Malibu Island Spiced cocktail (or two!). If you’re in need of a little summer holiday inspiration, why not try hosting a patriotic party or barbecuing a few Portobello turkey burgers on the grill. Whatever mood you’re in, our Memorial Day playlist is sure to be the perfect soundtrack for any festivities you have in store.

Whether you’re hosting a poolside soiree with friends or kicking back with a great book this long weekend, all of us here at Team LC hope you all have a fabulous Memorial Day.

Have a great rest of your weekend!

And be sure to let us know what you’re up to in the comments below.

XO Team LC

P.S. If you’ve been following Lauren’s Bikini Boot Camp Plan, take a cheat day for yourself…you deserve it.

UPDATE: While we’re big proponents of a little fun in the sun, we would also like to recognize the true meaning of Memorial Day. While you’re enjoying your day off today, take a moment to remember and honor all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. All of us on Team LC are very grateful for what they’ve done.

    why didn’t you mention the entire purpose of memorial day? honoring those who fell for our freedom… it’s about much more than three days off work.

  • Ashley

    Happy Memorial Day, and Happy Summer! :) http://dreamliveandrepeat.blogspot.com/

    We were going to do a lake/bbq/hiking trip but its rainomg cats and dogs outside! So no fun in the sun today :( just a major nap/relaxation session!

  • SuzyQ

    And while you’re indulging yourselves, don’t forget to remember those who serve, and have served for our country so you can indulge yourselves. Should’ve mentioned that first and foremost, don’t you think team LC?

  • Greta Gabriel

    It’s not about barbeques and pool parties, it’s about remembering those brave men and women who fought to ensure the freedoms we have today.

  • sodonnell

    I was a little disappointed not to see anything about the true meaning of Memorial Day weekend :( Thank you to all who have sacrificed for all that this country stands for.

    Let me preface this comment by saying that I am a big fan of Lauren Conrad, and I’m assuming that someone on her team and not Lauren herself wrote this Memorial Day post.

    This is the most disappointing Memorial Day post I’ve seen today. First of all, as others mentioned, why is there NO mention of the actual meaning of today?
    Second, today is not the “”official”” start of summer. It is the “”unofficial”” start of summer. Summer actually begins on June 21.

    Please, laurenconrad.com, do a little more research. This post just oozes ignorance and superficiality.

  • Lexi

    Where’s the thank you to all the men and women who have sacrificed their lives so that you can even have this blog?

  • Katelin Absher

    Thank you to the men and women who serve and have served for our country today is for you!


  • Diamenrose

    I have been enjoying your beauty book :) ( finished chapter3 and can’t wait for the chapter with stress) bisou xo

  • Whit

    Memorial Day is truly about honoring those
    Men and Women who have served this country, those who have lost their lives protecting and defending this country, and those who are on active and reserve duty protecting this country every day. Without them, the backyard barbecues and fun days at the beach would not be possible. So Thank You to those of you who have served and are still serving for the big ole’ Red, White, and Blue!

    p.s. I think many of the readers of this blog are very disappointed as I am about this post. A sincere apology following up this post is in order since I am sure
    several of your readers are soldiers themselves 😉

    Can you do a special on what is your summer wardrobe essentials?

    Happy Memorial Day!

  • KMitchell

    How disappointing. No mention of the soldiers who bravely fought for our country.

  • Tracy

    I couldn’t agree more with the posts below. This was written in such poor taste. For a site that consistently posts on etiquette and how to present one’s self, this comes off as nothing but superficial and classless. Those who have sacrificed their lives and are working to defend our country today deserve more than a ‘How-To Soiree’ post. Real role models would present more than how to have fun and look good doing it.

    Hopefully you realize this warrants an apology.

  • Julie Madsen

    Those of you who are overreacting about the theme of this post need to relax. The spirit of the post was not meant to be unpatriotic or offensive. How many of you did something on Memorial Day to celebrate the soldiers or a lost family member? If you spent your day at the pool or at a BBQ you are no better than the LC Team, which means you have no room to judge.
