Last year the Fourth of July was rained out and we were gearing up for our trip to Europe, so to say I wasn't really thinking of BBQ's and parties would be an understatement. This year however is a different story - we have a three day weekend ahead and a fun BBQ to attend, so what to wear is at the top of my list this week!
// If I really don't want to think about my outfit, this nautical romper is perfect for the weekend!
// I have been loving off the shoulder pieces and this Vince Camuto one is no exception - I actually like that it's a bit longer because I'm willing to bet it wont be as warm as we think it will be in Boston and I'll end up wearing jeans!
//What I'll never tire of are big floppy hats and this blue straw one is perfect if you are planning to head to the beach!
// The intricacy on this blouse is so pretty and there is just a hint of floral in the embroidered pattern
// While I am not going to be sporting the American flag in any of my clothing, I think these sunglasses are so fun and for only $12 totally worth it! I mean I can think of at least two holiday's to wear them!
//When in doubt just add a bold red lip and you're good to go! My favorite is Pomegranate by Bite Beauty! Without a doubt the most flattering red color for almost all skin tones!
Bringing something for the host is a must - it doesn't have to break the bank, but showing your thanks for the invite and for them opening their home to you is always best and most appreciated!
// You can pull a Ramona Singer and bring your favorite bottle of wine to share with the hosts - my favorite is Relax Riesling! You can also add a special touch to the wine bag by adding a really cute wine tag.
//With that bottle of wine bring some cute napkins like this pack of 20 from Swoozies.
//Bring something pre-made is always a nice touch. This red, white and blue salad is perfect because you can make it the morning of the event and it wont spoil!
//It's pretty likely that you're headed to a BBQ this holiday weekend, so treat the host to some grilling rub! I'm 100% sure they'll be excited to add a little something extra to their grilling repertoire.
//Headed to a pool party - bring this donut floatie that you have seen everywhere!! I actually didn't realize it was only $15!!
What are your plans for the Fourth of July? Do you already know what you'll be wearing?
