🍦 I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For ICE CREAM 🍦
ICYMI today is NATIONAL ICE CREAM DAY so to celebrate this sweet + tasty holiday, I wanted to round up some of my ice cream related essentials for ya’ll to enjoy this summer! From amazing ice cream makers, to ice cream themed home + pool decor, to cute ice cream designed clothing + accessories, there is enough ice cream to go around + plenty of non-sugar, non-fat + healthy alternatives to celebrate the holiday without loading up on calories hehe :p (ice cream pool float counts as a way to celebrate without the sprinkles right?!
BUT first for my ice cream themed outfit – I LOVE this striped dress from Red Dress Boutique! The bright + colorful stripes scream summer + make me dream of cotton candy flavored ice cream while my pink bow hairband just makes me dream of fun summer days. To tie the whole look together I paired this outfit with pink ankle strap heels (perfect to wear year round with any ensemble)!
Guys, I am a girly girl at heart. I love a feminine moment, a flowy dress, chic pumps, diamonds, glitter + most of all? TULLE! My struggle? Wearing tulle as a grown woman without looking like I am heading my my own ballet recital haha While I embrace being a kid at heart quite often (especially at Disney hehe :p) for everyday life, work, special occasions etc, I try to keep my inner kid in check + be a boss babe. Since I love wearing tulle but don’t want to look too childish I set out on a mission to make tulle chic by styling it with the right extras + I think I nailed it! Breaking it down below ♥
I love this tulle dress. It is so versatile to style for special occasions like parties, date nights + more but I always felt it wasn’t a dress to wear everyday but that all changed when I styled it a little differently.
I paired this tulle dress with a moto jacket, think ballerina after hours hehe :p I tied the look together with a Gucci pearl belt because why not, right?!
You can never go wrong with adding this Gucci belt and moto jacket to your wardrobe. You can intermix these pieces so many ways + they are just so fun to wear!
I always love a good bag + this Gucci mini bag is perfect for any occasion. May look small, but it fits EVERYTHING you need for a night out!
If you are still looking for the perfect bag to invest in, this is definitely a great one to start with.
As for my shoes you can never go wrong with a signature pair of black patent leather pumps like these.
I hope ya’ll are having a happy + healthy 4th! We are BBQing, hanging by the pool + heading out to watch some fireworks later on this evening (honestly fireworks is my favorite part of the 4th of July besides celebrating America’s independence + birth of this great country hehe :p). Isn’t it crazy to think this amazing country all started on this date in 1776 with the Declaration Of Independence? I don’t know about you but I am a little bit of a history nerd + thinking back to what made America America is beyond cool. We have come such a long way, accomplished so much + have really made America the country everyone wants to be apart of which makes me proud to be an American each + everyday!
I love this country. I love everything about America. The ability to accomplish your goals, make your dreams come true + be whoever you want to be without anyone telling you what you can or can’t do. It’s the country of the entrepreneur, the hard worker, the patriot + the go getter.
My bag is a red Gucci because I am all about collecting investment bags that have a POP of color. I have been collecting neutral designer bags for years so now is finally time to add some pretty colors to the collection like red, blue, pink, yellow + more! I rounded up various red Gucci bags below since my current style is no longer available.
For my heels I had to add a little BLUE to this ensemble with these blue ankle strap heels. I love a chunky heel + any shoe that adds some color to any outfit. Just a great pair of heels to brighten up any outfit for work or play.
It’s not very often you get to match one of your childhood favorite summer treats but today I get to! When I was a kiddo I loved the summer time because we would stock up on all the best ice cream + popsicles. My favorite? Rocket Pops! Not only are these red, white + blue treats perfect to kick off 4th of July festivities, they are beyond tasty with their mix of lemon lime, cherry + blueberry flavors. Naturally when I discovered this fun rocket pop inspired bag from Shop Harvey’s I knew I needed it + knew it was perfect for the upcoming July 4th holiday!
While this look may be a tad bit dressy for your average backyard BBQ, I am a firm believer in go big or go home haha And there is no such thing as ‘too dressy’. The perfect outfit is the one you feel most confident in, and that is this patriotic look for me!
This Rocket Pop inspired bag is the perfect handbag for the 4th of July. It has room for your phone, keys and all your other firework watching essentials. I love the material (it’s made from recycled seat belts, how cool right?!) + I am obsessed with the bright + bold look.
I built my outfit around this bag so I styled it with a chic white wrap dress from SHEIN. They honestly have the best dresses at great prices, that’s a combination you just can’t beat! I am linking to a few of my favorites below!
My shoes are also perfect for the 4th (and anytime in between) because they add a bold pop of color to any ensemble + they are also super comfortable!
Investing in some bright + colorful heels is always a good idea because they can be so versatile to style with various looks year round. Pair these beauties with dresses, skirts, white jeans, black slacks + so much more for work or play!
A little fun fact, my BF thought shooting with an actual Rocket Pop would make the photos more fun (which it definitely did!) BUT it was melting down my hand the entire time 😛 haha The things we go through for the perfect photos…can you see it melting in my hand?
Whether you are heading on vacay, the beach, a fun backyard BBQ or going to check out some fireworks, showing your patriotism is always a must when it comes to the 4th of July! Everyday I am beyond grateful to live here in the land of the free, land of opportunity + land where you can be anything you want to be. While I’m always been proud to be an American, more so now than ever before I have been feeling even stronger about my patriotism to this amazing country. I cherish all of the things that makes America great + showing that off by embracing our country’s colors feels better than ever!
From stylish swimwear to fun accessories to great graphic tees, I am rounding up all of the style essentials you need to embrace your inner Red, White + Blue this July 4th ♥
