Kick off the summer with a few finds that are both pretty and patriotic! TODAY style editor and author Bobbie Thomas shares the scoop on what's hot for Memorial Day.
United Scents of America
Have you ever stopped to think about what your state smells like? Fragrance industry friends Sasha and Samantha teamed up to develop United Scents of America, a complete collection of perfumes designed to capture the essence of each state. From New York's apple-inspired blend to Texas' cedar leaf and amber, all of their products are made in America ($26-$58, unitedscentsofamerica.com).
Ooh La La Wines
Add a touch of style to your table and your wrist this season thanks to Ooh La La Wines. In addition to serving up beautiful bottles of pinot grigio, rose, riesling and chardonnay, Ooh La La has teamed up with jewelry designer "Three Jane" to create bracelets that double as bottle openers! (Three Jane Cuff $35, ThreeJaneNY.com; Ooh La La Wine $11.99, oohlalawines.com).
White hot nails
As a result of nail art overload, an equally striking yet simple trend has emerged that will work well with Memorial Day's red, white and blue color scheme. Solid white manicures ranging from opaque and milky (Sephora by OPI 'White Hot' $9.50, sephora.com) to softer, sheer shades (Essie's 'Marshmallow' $5.75, amazon.com) are a refreshingly cool accent for summer.
