America’s birthday is one of my favorite birthdays (besides mine of course). 4th of July 2017 will be America’s 241st birthday!! I love the fun, daytime festivities that come with the 4th, like BBQ’s and hanging out on the beach. But I also love the festivities that happen at night, like watching fireworks after a concert! The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays because so many people come together to celebrate our independence!! I feel like we sometimes take for granted being born here, but it’s always something to be thankful for.
When it comes to style, I’ll admit that I am guilty of planning my yearly 4th of July outfit like two months in advance this year. No shame. In the past, I always made a mental note that I wanted a cute outfit for the 4th, but still waited until basically two days before to scramble and find something festive (but still cute) to wear. So this year I planned two months ahead instead of two days lol. I love how this outfit came together! My red, off-the-shoulder top is practical, yet still chic. Also, I’ve looked EVERYWHERE for a straw purse to carry this summer. I feel like everyone has a straw or wooden purse because of how stylish and summery they are. I was so excited when I finally found this small round handle straw tote! My fringe jeans are my favorite article of clothing that I own right now. I seriously love them. I bought mine at Zara, but here are 3 pairs that are similar: 1 (under $100), 2 (under $50), 3 (under $90). Long story short, you can shop everything I’ve talked about below. You can also shop some of my other favorite red, white and blue pieces!!! How cute is this pom-pom headband?!
Lately, I’ve been really freaking stressed out. I’m going to go ahead and assume that it’s because of the fact that I’m constantly on social media. I’m on it for my blog, for personal use, for work, etc. It’s such a constant cycle that I’ve gotten to the point where I just want to delete all my accounts, because I don’t want to go down the path where it becomes unhealthy. SO I’m going to make a conscious effort top spend less time looking at my phone and more time looking at what’s in front of me. I’m so excited for the 4th of July, because I’m able to relax and spend time with my favorite people!
