Fourth of July Styles for Every Kind of Celebration

Fourth of July Styles for Every Kind of Celebration

The Fourth of July is just one week away. To prepare for patriotic celebrations of all kinds, I’m sharing my favorite red, white and blue styles today. From the pool and the beach to a bbq or dinner with friends, I’ve got you covered.

Sparkling Stars Headband, Mer-Made in the USA Tee, Navy Blue Maxi Dress, Red Picnic Mini Dress, Blue and White Linen Sleeper Dress, Red Crop Top, Red Midi Skirt, Blue and White Midi Dress, White Linen Maxi Dress with Rose Embroidery, Straw Loewe Bag, Baby Blue Freedom Moses Sandals, White High-rise Denim, Red and White Embroidered Blouse, Red, White and Blue Golden Goose, White Swim Tunic, Red Swimsuit, Blue Bow Mules, White cut-out Midi Dress

I personally love wearing a beautiful dress for the fourth because not only are they incredibly cute, they are also great for a hot day. If you’re hitting the pool or the beach, order this red swimsuit and white tunic cover-up ASAP! They are currently on a major sale at J.Crew and with luck, you can have it by the fourth.

However you choose to celebrate this year, I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!

Spring Things

Spring Things

Spring is finally here! Lately it seems like I am loving all things green and I don’t think I’m alone in that. According to the Zoe Report, the color green–which is known to elicit feelings of optimism and rebirth–is a trending color this season.  

Susanna Merrick, founder of Aura Wear, spoke with the Zoe Report about the subconscious meaning of wearing green.

“When someone is attracted to the color green, they’re calling in growth, expansion, determination, focus, ambition, goals,” Merrick said in the Zoe Report article. “I always lovingly refer to green as the ‘Type-A energy’.”

White Blouse, Relaxed Denim, Peacock Maxi Dress, White LoveShackFancy Dress, Tortoise Sunglasses, Floral Bathrobe, Tan Mules, Straw Tote Bag, Sage Green Bike, Knitted Sweater, White Veja Sneakers

If my color choice this season is any indication–I’m ready to get things done and look cute doing it. From my new bike to the dresses I’ll be wearing, it’s all green. Living in Austin, pretty much everyone has a bike and I am so excited because my parents got me this beautiful Reid bike for my birthday this year! It should be getting delivered in the next few weeks and I just can’t wait to bike around town and enjoy this beautiful weather.

My mother-in-law showed me this gorgeous peacock dress in the new issue of Garden and Gun magazine and I think it is an essential for your spring wardrobe. It can be easily dressed up or down, personally, I’d love pairing it with my white Veja’s for a fun lunch with my girlfriends.

Another highlight from my spring crushes is this lovely hand-knitted sweater from Fanm Mon. I discovered this brand from Arielle Charnas, the creator of Something Navy, and am just in love with their clothing. I think this sweater will help you seamlessly transition from winter to spring. I’m also dreaming of the wicker Prada bag for spring…it will be the perfect addition to almost any outfit!

While this LoveShackFancy dress might not be green, it is a staple for this spring and summer. From afternoon tea to a walk on the beach, this dress will be perfect for you.

What are the trends you are loving this season?

Brit’s Picks: Fourth of July 🌟

Brit’s Picks: Fourth of July 🌟

Happy Friday, y’all!! Can you believe we are just a week away from Fourth of July celebrations?! Today I’m sharing my favorite patriotic finds to complete your party preparations! From your attire to decor, I’ve got you covered!

Are you still searching for the perfect Fourth of July decor for your party?! Target and Amazon have the cutest patriotic decorations at affordable prices and you will be able to get them in time for your celebration! I’m a big fan of stars so of course I love banners and garland made with red, white and blue stars. I also think these Meri Meri confetti rockets are a fabulous party favor for your friends and family.

As far as my Fourth of July outfit, I will be wearing my new Daily Sleeper Atlanta dress! I ordered mine in a size small and in the “Azure Blue” color. I love the color of this dress and how feminine and comfortable it is. As much as I do love this dress, it did take two months to be delivered so I wouldn’t recommend planning on wearing it immediately, but I will say, it is totally worth the wait.

For other festive looks, I would pair the USA crop top or the beautiful Mi Golondrina top with a pair of white L’Agence Margot high-rise jeans. This is my all-time favorite pair of jeans…I have them in white and a classic blue and get so many compliments whenever I wear them.

I also love the white LoveShackFancyxTarget dress for a festive option….you can pair it with some turquoise earrings and maybe a red bow in your hair and you with have the perfect outfit. I ordered this dress online in a size 2 and it fits perfectly. It looks almost exactly like the LoveShackFancy Edie dress, but much more affordable. It’s still in stock in a few sizes at Target, you don’t want to miss this one! I shared this navy blue polka dot dress from Tory Burch last week and I had to share it again because it is just too cute and it is now under $200. This is a quintessential Fourth of July dress and would be so cute with a red headband or jewelry to show your American pride.

If you’re hitting the beach, pool or the lake, I would suggest this gorgeous high-waisted red bikini from Mara Hoffman. I have a few bikinis from Mara Hoffman and I normally wear a small in the top and medium in the bottoms. These swimsuits are definitely an investment, but they fit perfectly and are made so well… you can keep them for years!

No outfit is complete without a great pair of shoes and for this Fourth of July, I will be wearing the Zara bow slides. They just got marked down to $35 and are a perfect neutral for summer. If you’re looking to splurge this holiday weekend, look no further than these chambray Chanel beauties or these chic Gucci slides. They are the perfect compliment to any patriotic look you have planned!

Whether you’re barbecuing with family, going out on the boat or the beach for the fourth, you will definitely need a festive face mask and of course, Evian face mist to beat the heat!

What are your plans for the Fourth? Leave me a comment and let me know! Hope you are all staying safe, happy and healthy this weekend!

Brit’s Picks

Happy Friday, loves! This week I am at the beach and am sharing a few of my favorite items that I have been loving on our trip! We are in Watercolor, Florida and there are so many beautiful shades of green and blue here and that color palette has inspired most of my looks this week.

1. Straw Hat 2. Tie-dye headband 3. Rosé Earrings 4. Straw Bucket Bag 5. White Kaftan 6. SeaSalt Hairspray 7. Mint Green Workout Set 8. Scalloped Bed Sheets 9. Veuve Rosé Recycled Candle 10. Mi Golondrina Top 11. Peacock Float 12. Tan Jelly Sandals

I have been wearing this Eugenia Kim Mirabel Hat every day on our trip and I am SO in love with it. I have wanted one of these hats for years, but just couldn’t bring myself to pay the full-price. Luckily, I was online the other day and got an alert that this beautiful hat with a mint ribbon was on sale so I jumped on it! I do love a good deal so while I was checking out, I googled “Eugenia Kim coupons” and a 20 percent off coupon popped up that actually worked so I got an additional 20 percent off of the already discounted price. I recommend doing this when you are shopping online because so many stores have extra coupons available and you can save yourself a lot of money.

I paired the hat with the Uber-popular Lyocell Caftan from H&M. I got this caftan on sale a couple of weeks ago for $17.99 and I am just blown away with how elegant and high-quality it is. I have also been wearing the Pamela Munson straw bucket bag non-stop and have gotten so many compliments. It is the perfect summer bag and it actually holds quite a few items.

Having fun at the pool with the peacock float and the J.crew tie-dye headband!

If you are looking for a fun and affordable pool float for the summer, look no further than this incredible peacock! We brought it to the beach and have had so much fun with it. It did take a while to blow up and I would highly recommend using a pump, but it is do-able to blow it up by yourself.

What are you loving for the beach this summer? Leave me a comment and let me know!
