I’m so excited to share this blog, an outlet for me to chronicle my personal style, inspirations and latest obsessions. And you, if you dig it, welcome to your new...
It’s HERE! My favorite week of the year! Fourth of July week has this special quality about it unlike any other time for me. There is just something about it - I can’t quite put it into words. The best analogy that I can think of is the feeling you had as a little kid about the tooth fairy, Santa, the Easter bunny etc. It’s *magic* !
It’s officially summer… so naturally I’m dressed like the Fourth of July. It’s no secret by now that any combination of red, white and blue (especially involving a stripe) is my summer uniform. I never tire of it and don’t ever want to. That said, when I find something in one of those colors and it fits *perfectly* and is comfortable, I know it’s going to be loved and lived in.
If you follow me on Instagram you have probably seen by now that I have been living in these Sperry sneakers. They are the most comfortable sneaks that I have maybe ever worn. Which is saying something, since I have previously described sneakers as sleeping bags for your feet!
I’m obsessed with this top from Shopbop. I discovered it at their #StyeHigh event this spring and couldn’t stop thinking about it. It’s like a Hawaiian shirt, crisp button down and peplum crop top all blended into one. There is so much going on in this one piece and it works magically. I have been really into over-the-top statement shirts recently. I find that when pulling together the rest of the look I always like them best paired back to denim. Wether it’s a cropped flare, skinny jean or Mom fit - an over-the-top shirt paired back to your most lived in blue jeans really gets me. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing a whole lot of that this summer.
There are many things that I love about a matching set. Quite possibly my favorite thing about them is how g-darn easy they make getting dressed. You pick out one thing and – BAM – you’ve got an *outfit*. And since we all know I live for accessories, it leaves plenty of time to jazz the heck out of the look with jewels. That means two wrists filled to the brim with bracelets, oversized raffia earrings and layered necklaces. Because when it comes to kewl jewelry more is more.
