Fourth of July Inspiration

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?

  6. I love the blouse and your gift ideas! The donut is so cute, but I want one of those big swans lol. I think it would take up a lot of room in my parents pool though lol. I think I'm going to bring jello cupcakes to Marc's Aunt's party on the 4th. xo

  49. Those flag sunnies are so cute! And I'm really wishing I could down that bottle of Relax ;) We had just closed on our house last 4th, so we were super busy painting and moving and didn't get to enjoy it. We are headed to my in-law's lake house this year and I am so ready for some R 'n R!

  61. I definitely thought those pool floaters were more expensive too! They are so cute and I see them everywhere! Oh how I wish we had a pool for that reason. Even if we'd only be able to use it for 3-4 months of the year.

  64. So I may have gone a little crazy last weekend and purchased three 4th inspired outfits just for this weekend. But hey, they aren't sooo over board that I can't wear them all summer long. (; Let's hope this weekend is actually sunny!
