Greetings and happy July 4th from sunny Long Beach, NY!
I hope you’re all enjoying some outdoor summer fun and toasting to the good ole’ U.S. of A!
While you’re doing your best to keep from burning (at least that’s MY current struggle!), I’ve got some of the best steals and deals you need to shop while the Independence Day savings are still hot… and in stock.
I’m a big believer that most fashion rules are outdated, unnecessary and simply should be ignored.
You want to wear white after Labor Day!? DO IT, girl.
Thinking about pairing black with navy? Yaaaaaaaaaaassssss.
Sneakers with a dress?? Get after it.
It seems the older we get, the more of these archaic fashion rules apply. For example, who decided that once we are a certain age, mini skirts are no longer appropriate?! I’d like to meet this individual and have a serious sit down.
Navigating fashion trends and changing styles definitely becomes a bit trickier with age, but with the right know-how you can proudly rock that mini skirt and take back the hemline. #FreeTheLegs — I think I’m onto the next big social media trending movement!
What’s better than a summer Friday? A summer Friday before a holiday weekend!
I’ve been packing up a storm as we leave for our annual East Coast trip later this weekend. I’m super excited to spend some time in NY and with my family and friends, but there is always so much to do before any extended getaway. In the grand scheme of things, I think not such a bad “problem” to have. July 4th weekend is always the peak of summer fun and I plan to make the most of it — so should you!
Can you believe the July 4th holiday weekend is only a few days away!? This particular holiday tends to sneak right in.
Regardless of your age bracket, your personal style and your particular Independence Day plans, we all seem to get into the Independence Day spirit — just a little. I mean, who doesn’t like fireworks!? Here are 3 easy fashion girl approved outfits to wear this July 4th weekend that are both celebratory AND cool.
Anyone else obsessing over the little white dress?
There are so many cute ones on the market lately! While I try hard to keep my wardrobe edited and streamlined, I can’t help but want to continuously add to my little white dress collection. What makes it even more challenging, is that all of these cute styles are so reasonably priced and all ring in at UNDER $100.
Need more proof that a little white dress is where it’s at this season? Check out the roundup of my favorite styles below!
Mine was super fun! We hosted my brother and his fiance and spent the last 2 days giving them a grand tour of Cleveland. After we parted ways, I spent some time attacking my closet and doing some much needed editing.
There is nothing like the feeling of a good closet purge to get your week started off right!
Can you believe it’s Friday Link Love time already?!
This was recital week for my 6 year old and after what seems like a prolonged Ground Hog Day experience, it’s nice to wake up to a Friday! Last night was the final performance and we couldn’t be more proud of how our little girl rocked her dances. Dancing aside, the joy we witnessed as she came off the stage was enough to convince me that my dance mom days are far from over. Although, I can’t lie: I’m beyond thankful I have 2 months to recover before all that starts up again!
While I slowly sip my coffee and enjoy the quiet of my house, here are this week’s Link Love reads to get YOUR weekend started right!
I know this post may be contrary to everything you’ve ever known and loved about summer fashion, but you need to know: summer neutrals are where it’s at.
Yes, bright colors and bold patterns are more typical of summer style, but hear me out here. Summer neutrals can become a beautiful way to embrace the heat and take a more understated approach to this season’s fashion. These 5 pieces can also be easily mixed-and-matched into a closet full of brights, as well as with each other.
