4th of July: Independence Day Festivities

4th of July Wardrobe Essentials
With July 4th coming up, I wanted to make an essentials collage for you guys to help inspire your Independence Day outfits!
The 4th of July is all about hanging out with friends and family, cooking up barbecue on the back porch and watching fireworks light up the night sky.  It’s definitely a good idea to dress more comfortably, especially since these activities are mainly outdoors and quite active. I’ve put together two staple denim pieces–especially since jeans are very easy to pair with other wardrobe pieces. Not to mention, they’re great to move around in and perfect when it gets chillier during the night.
I’ve also included a white lace and eyelet dress, just in case some of you guys are feeling a bit more dressy–still comfortable enough to wear all day though! And for those of you who like to lounge around and sip on cold lemonade all day–the softest prima jersey tank and bright scallop shorts!
The accessories here are very basic–a large tote to fit a big blanket in for fireworks, comfy flat sandals, a scarf in case it gets cold, classy pearls, and a simple watch.
I hope all of you enjoy the 4th with your friends and families! Happy styling fashionistas,
-A

7 Days of Fashion: Tuesday

{{The Modern Red}}

I have always been an avid fan of the “all black with a pop of red” combo. These two colors together are very eye-catching and definitely give off a modern twist to the classic little black dress

I have to admit, I’ve been very caught up in the whole flare/skater skirt trend for the past few months and I just absolutely adored this LBD when I happened upon it in my mother’s wardrobe.

The sweetheart top, plus the intricate beading detail made me fall in love with this vintage chiffon flare dress the moment I laid eyes on it.

It’s a wonderful thing really—coming across such a wonderful, staple piece without expecting to, a complete surprise. But those are often the best surprises.

And of course, I couldn’t help but add my own delicate, raindrop statement necklace to accent the intricate beaded details.

To battle all the snow and ice, I thought it would be best to wear a sturdy pair of leather booties, with just a mini heel as a little flirty detail.

Well, here’s to a bold and flirty Tuesday! I hope some of these ideas have inspired you to live your life just a little more colorfully.

Be bold, be spontaneous, but most of all, be yourself.

Much love,
