4th of July is just days away + that means bring on the BBQ, fireworks, pies, and lots of patriotic outfits! America’s Birthday is one of my favorite days of the year + it brings back memories of when I was a child cruising around Long Island with my dad searching for fireworks at various beaches, such a weird feeling that a lot of the fireworks shows aren’t happening this year due to COVID but that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate with family + friends with a backyard BBQ or fun picnic etc!
Here’s some fun Patriotic Style Picks for you to rock this ⭐️ 4th Of July ⭐️
I hope ya’ll had a great pre 4th of July weekend! It’s so weird to have the 4th of July mid week when the BBQs and parties are typically on the weekends, but my boo + I definitely celebrated early. We BBQed, shot some Red, White + Blue looks AND even got to watch fireworks from our balcony (how cool is that?!) We live near Six Flags Magic Mountain which is having fireworks every night till the 4th so that means we get to enjoy free fireworks every night! My favorite!
Since the 4th is just days away, I had to share another red, white + blue look! This cute top from Pleione is currently on sale + instantly reminded me of the 4th of July. Red pom poms paired with blue stripes makes for the perfect patriotic look!
While normally I BBQ for the 4th, this year we are heading to Universal Studios for the day and then my little brother comes to visit. We are super excited to have some fun in the sun! While this look is a bit dressier than what one may wear for the 4th, it was too cute not too share hehe :p
I paired this top with a casual white skater skirt + white duster cardigan. Both of these pieces are must-haves for every gal if you ask me! They can mix + match with any look + are great to dress up or down depending on the occasion.
As for my shoes + bag, I had to keep those with the patriotic theme. I have been loving this white ark bag for summer (it just is so trendy right now) + these cobalt blue heels!
I love a great pop of color as you all know + these heels are perfect for that!
Happy 4th Of July Everyone!! Time to light up the BBQ, head for the beach + enjoy the sunshine while sipping on cocktails. While I will for sure be doing that, I may be doing a little bit of something else…online shopping!! 4th Of July weekend always has some of the best sales. From end of season summer favs like swimsuits + pool toys to trendy footwear + accessories, every major retailer does big business this weekend and honestly I am not surprised as to why, this is one of my favorite weekends to shop (in between laying out by the pool of course :p).
While this weekend is traditionally known for summer time fun, I want to just remind everyone this is a holiday to celebrate America, to celebrate what makes this country truly great + to think about what it is to be an American. I for one am beyond proud to live here + be an American. It saddens me that as of late with this political climate, less + less Americans are ‘proud‘ of being an American. How can you not proud to be a citizen of this great country where everyone else desperately wants to move to? We have the best of everything, no matter what your political beliefs are, to be an American is an amazing thing + this weekend is a time to feel proud + show your allegiance to this country.
Now that I got out of the way 😉 I am rounding up some of the Top 4th Of July SALES for 2017 below!
Time to take a D I P ♥ I hope everyone had a fun 4th of July weekend (I know I sure did)! I spent the 4th at Universal Studios hanging with my favorite creatures ever…the MINIONS (oh yea…and my little brother who is here visiting me for 2 weeks from NY)! We’ve already ventured to Rodeo where I fell in love with a Ferragamo bag (similar tothis one)…pretty sure it is going to be my next handbag purchase #oops!
Anyways, now that the 4th is over it truly feels like summer is here, so I rounded up some of my favorite swimwear trends for summer 2016 below!

I can’t believe it is 4th Of July weekend already! I am happily writing this post by the pool at my apartment building since I have the day off today (so thrilling!) and this is actually a little bit of a flashback to LI while also sharing some July 4th style! I realized as I was editing these photos that A) These were shot in March (guess I was feeling patriotic vibes early haha) + B) All of these photos had what appears to be a blue filter over them…I am thinking my brother was having some mechanical difficulties with the camera that day but nonetheless they came out pretty sweet!
