Summer is officially here (even if we are still social distancing, quarantining, wearing masks + more) so that means it’s time to get excited for 4th Of July, one of my favorite days of summer! I love the backyard BBQs, the fireworks + the family fun this holiday brings while celebrating America’s Birthday!
One of my favorite things to do in preparation for the 4th Of July is embrace wearing Red, White + Blue + baking Cherry Pie so I combined my love of both with a little cherry print outfit from SHEIN!
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?
Happy July 1st everyone! I can’t believe the 4th Of July is approaching (which is one of my favorite times of year by the way…who doesn’t love some instagram worthy fireworks paired with delicious BBQ…am I right? :p) Well this beach day look was actually shot back when I was still living on Long Island and it was taken in Huntington…one of my favorite places to go during the summer time. Looking through these photos definitely brought back some memories of home…and most specifically of how I’ve spent 4th of Julyevery year…
