Fourth of July BBQ Stylin’

Independance Day is one of my absolute favorite Holidays. It falls right near my Birthday (hellooo extended celebrations!), and it is right in the middle of summer so all activities revolve around drinking, grilling, water sports, and the great outdoors. PLUS short hemlines are encouraged — how could you go wrong with that?!? Above is my ideal 4th of July BBQ outfit, which keeps the wears pretty basic and really lets the accessories shine.

What’s Black White and RE(a)D all over? The WEDNESDAY WISHLIST, of course!

Hiii Lovies,

After my brief hiatus (work, weddings, hamptons madness) I am back and ready for one of my favorite bloggerly installments: WEDNESDAY WISH LIST! This week I am really into the basics, classic color combos with a little print for quirck. I am seriously coveting ALL of the items on today’s list (completely obsessed with the Jil Sander bag — seen here too) and I am pretty certain those scalloped shorts or that fab striped dress will be making it’s way into my closet very soon.

Move to Stripe

I must say, that stripes are something that will ALWAYS be in style. From the classic Breton stripe to the dapper pin stripe, and even throwing some chevron stripes into the mix, you really can’t go wrong. Summer is almost upon us, and my obsession with BRIGHT and BOLD colors is growing stronger as the days grow longer. I really love everything on this week’s list as every item is so fun, punchy, and begging for me to take it on a tropical getaway.  So splurge on some stripes and know that this trend will be one you can always count on.
