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?
ICMYI – Festival Season shopping is in full swing with Coachella just weeks away so I wanted to share one of my favorite trends I LOVE wearing out in Palm Desert and that is…yup, you guessed it – PALM TREES + PALM PRINT! I mean seriously, who doesn’t love palm print for summer anyway but when in Palm Springs, I think palm trees + palm print on your clothing is kinda a requirement, no? :p
Whether you are heading to the festival, lounging by the pool or off to some parties (or hey maybe you are just chillin’ at home + love some desert vibes)…these picks are perfect to keep you cool + stylish in the desert heat all weekend long!
Someone has a case of the MONDAYS…OK, maybe I do haha but this week is going to fly by fast since I am heading to London this week to see my babe who I have missed so much over the past few months! Let me tell ya, long distance is tough and I have had plenty of blue Mondays missing him but this Monday is starting off bright because my first international trip is just days away! I spent the weekend attempting to pack (and try to avoid overpacking) which has been quite the challenge. How can a gal have multiple outfits to shoot and avoid hundreds of dollars worth of checked baggage charges? Ugh…seriously airlines aren’t getting the struggles influencers go through now-a-days 😉 Maybe that will be my newest platform to make a stink about – more free checked baggage 😉 hehe
I have always been one to pair a chic striped skirt with a classic white button down. I packed this entire look for London (hopefully it isn’t too cold but then again I am quite warm blooded, just ask Mike, he freezes in my apartment haha).
A white button down is essential for every gal’s wardrobe. Whether you pair it with jeans for a casual look or with a striped skirt like this for meetings at the office, a classic top like this one is always a good idea.
Since black + white can get a little ‘blah’ every now + then, it comes time to add a ‘Pop Of Color’ to your look – as you all definitely know by now, I am not one to shy away from bright, bold colors, so cobalt blue it is!
