Humans don't technically hibernate, but if you take a look at the hours of Netflix watched between the months of January and April we may as well have. Now that the warm weather is finally here, we're ready to bust out of that cave known as the living room (aptly nicknamed the den in some households) for some post-winter partying.

A full social calendar can be great, but not when your closet is empty! Luckily, Kahlana Barfield, fashion and beauty editor of InStyle Magazine, stopped by this morning to help you plan the perfect outfit for every occasion.

Memorial Day barbecue

Memorial Day signals the unofficial beginning of summer, so embrace it! Off-the-shoulder tops are still holding strong so show some skin and pair a cute top with some shorts and a pair of comfortable wedges.

Daytime adventure

Whether you're heading to an amusement park or hitting the open road for a cross-country trip, some of the best summer fun is had during the day. Functionality is super important for these all-day activities, so a no-fuss jumpsuit is the perfect option for your next adventure.
